Besides creating awareness on crime prevention among students, the programme also aimed at forging a better rapport between senior-ranked officers of Kampar District Police Headquarters and the UTAR community. The programme was also an opportunity for police officers to approach the students directly. They also distributed crime prevention leaflets. The leaflets contained detailed information on crime prevention.
The event came to an end after a souvenir exchange between Prof Choong and SUPT Hasron, signifying the close ties forged between the two institutions through such an initiative.
