    Accolades for Civilian Crime Buster


    PETALING JAYA (Dec 20, 2012): He is a household name in Subang Jaya – not for his towering size but rather how he has put it to use.

    Civilian crime buster Joe Mahinder Singh holds a record of single-handedly apprehending 45 criminals and recovering 16 motorcycles and cars over the past 15 years, mainly in his township.

    The 55-year-old Punjabi businessman, who stands at 186cm and weighs 100kg, has battle scars to show for his efforts. He has suffered bruises and torn muscles in making citizen's arrests on armed criminals, mainly snatch thieves and burglars.

    His car and a 500cc cruiser motorcycle, used to chase snatch thieves, have also been damaged during such pursuits.

    The latest case was in April when he apprehended a burglar whom he spotted breaking into his neighbour's house.

    However, the burglar put up a fight and in the ensuing struggle, both men fell into a monsoon drain. The thief managed to escape while Mahinder sustained an ankle injury.

    The injury has slowed him down and these days Mahinder, who is community policing head for SS14 and liaison officer for the township's police, has opted to fight crime by providing information to the police on criminal activities.

    Yesterday, his efforts to fight crime was recognised by the Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar during a function at the Subang Jaya district police headquarters.

    Mahinder told the Sun the letter of appreciation he received from the IGP was great motivation which he hopes will spur others to help the police fight crime.

    "It is all about doing our part as civilians to fight crime. This does not mean everybody has to tackle a criminal; just making an effort to call the police on seeing a victim being attacked or sharing information with them can make a difference," he said.
