SIBU: The setting-up of the Farley Police Beat Base near Farley Supermarket here is a good example of the community working closely together with the police to fight crime.
District police chief ACP Stanley Jonathan Ringgit in praising the company said Farley’s effort in setting up the facility speaks volumes of its care for the safety of the community.
“Such commendable initiative by Farley has created a living environment that is safe and provides peace-of-mind not only to those living within Farley’s area, but areas in Salim in general,” he said during the official opening and handing over of the beat base yesterday.
