Yangon’s crime crackdown operations to be extended to other locations

Yangon Region government yesterday said that its crime crackdown operations will be extended to eight other townships of the region.
Acting Police Bridge-Gen Win Naing of Yangon Region Police Force said that the next crime crackdown plan will begin 1 August, targeting Thakayta and Dagon Myothit (North) Townships in Yangon’s East District, Mayangon and Sangyoung in West District, Dala and Twantay in South District and Insein and Mingaladon in North District.
He called for the regional government’s support and participation of local authorities at the grass roots level.
Yangon Region Chief Minister U Phyo Min Thein said that efforts will be made to keep the rule of law in the four townships where a rule of law programme was conducted since 14 June despite planned crime prevention activities in other townships. The chief minister called on lawmakers to encourage the people to take part in the community-based crime crackdown plan in cooperation with police members and local authorities.
The launch of the crime crackdown operations in the city’s most high risk locations— South Dagon, Kamayut, Thanlyin and Hlinethaya Townships— can reduce crimes there, said Police Bridge-Gen Win Naing.
According to Yangon Region Police Force, the rule of law programme to ensure and reduce crimes in Yangon will be extended to the remaining townships except Cocogyun Township.
