Deputy Education Minister Datuk Chong Sin Woon said the cooperation included the appointing of police officers as school liaison officers.

He said the officers visited schools to monitor the improvement of discipline among students and held talks and exhibitions on crime prevention and road safety.

“They also have discussions with the school managements on problematic students and provide advice and guidance on safety, at school assemblies,” he said.
