Below is an article taken from http://www.usj.com.my/ forum:
Tuan Foo has contributed so much to USJ.
Tonight we received a very sad and shocking news that our top cop in charge of the USJ8 Police Station Tuan Foo just passed away in the course of duty during a raid. We have not got full details but we shall keep the residents informed. Tuan Foo is a real fine officer whom many of us have had the pleasure of working with since he came on board to take charge of the USJ 8 Police Station. Ever since he came on board, he has been trying his best to look after the safety of USJ residents. He had worked closely with us even when trying to resolve the problem of the mother who had used her children to beg on the streets. He was also instrumental in making USJ being one of the first police district to kick off the Community Policing. Tuan Foo is survived by his wife and a child of 2 years.We are really, really sad to have lost such a fine police officer and a dear friend who cared very much for the community. I would like to take the initiative to kick off a donation drive, which will be given to the family as a token of appreciation for his care and concern to the people of USJ. Those who wish to join me to donate to the family, may bank into my usual account in the name of TAN LIONG LAI. Maybank account no. 112482081436. As always, I shall account for the amount collected on one of the threads on the Forum. May you rest in peace Tuan Foo. It was a pleasure and honour to have worked with you.

Target Group: Primary school children who are from underprivileged homes at Angsana and who are underachievers in school (The Jawatankuasa Penduduk there will assist in identifying these children).
First Intake: 10 January to 28 March 2009.
Sessions: Session 1 from 9.00 am to 11.00 am and Session 2 from 11.30am to 1.30pm.
Objectives: A 3-month programme to help students communicate functionally in English & to build their confidence. Our targets are speaking, counting, writing & reading.
Teachers: Our ratio is 1 teacher to 3-4 students and 10 students per session only.
Very recently, I attended a Forum Pembasmian Kemiskinan organised by the Selangor State Government and one of the panel speakers spoke about a need for a study centre and free tuition at low cost homes to eradicate poverty. Usually in low cost homes, the units are very small and if one child is watching TV, other children in that unit will not be able to study and concentrate. As such, similar projects have been launched at Desa Mentari and Taman Medan.

My team began reporting these cases to MPSJ and pushed for parks to be lighted up in Subang Jaya. New lamp-posts were also installed in 6 parks. As a result, a total of 27 parks have been lighted up as of November 2008:
Next year, I will continue to push for more parks to be lighted up. This is one of the steps I have taken to improve safety in our neighbourhood. With these lights on, residents can go for walks in the evening at these parks and feel safer. You can read more about it here as reported in The Star and here as reported in the blog of one of the resident groups. A big thank you to MPSJ for their cooperation.

When I personally went to check on the parks and to take photographs, I bumped into the Rukun Tetangga of PJS 9 doing their rounds at midnight. Syabas to the team for working hard for the safety of their neighbourhood!

I called for a press conference yesterday morning at the site. Also present were the MC and residents led by chairman of MC, Mr TK Wong, MPSJ councillor Theresa Ratnam Thong and officers from MPSJ including engineering director En Adnan Derahman and Commissioner of Building Ms Tee. Sime Darby was also invited to be present at the press conference but no representative came. Purpose of the press conference was to inform the affected residents on the status and to urge Sime Darby not to further delay the works.
I urge Sime Darby to begin the rehabilitation works urgently to avoid any tragedy there. The Bukit Antarabangsa incident must be a lesson for all and not a one-off-passing-story-and-then-forget-about-it account.
