Thank You for Your Cooperation into Our Routine Call

The police officers assigned to your nearby KOBAN / RESIDENTIAL POLICE BOX provide 24-hour service by patrolling the areas or conduct other activities. "Routine Call" is one of the police activities that police officers make a call at houses and offices in their section with the aim of providing a safe and secure community.

Feel free to let us know your concern, opinions.

During our "Routine Call", we will inform the citizen about/give advice on how to prevent crimes and accidents. The activity is also aiming to bring and reflect local residents' concerns, troubles and opinions into police activities in establishing a safe society.

Contact us if you :

  • see a stranger approaching children
  • request us to patrol the vicinity as undesirable people are coming into your neighborhood
  • need to talk as you were indecently assaulted
  • are suffering from inappropriately loud noise/nuisance activities that motorcycle gangs make
  • request for counseling on your children as you discovered early signs of delinquency
  • want to inform us of a person who is abusing stimulants, paint thinner or other drugs
  • need our advice as you were threatened, blackmailed or harassed by gangsters

Our best effort will be taken to solve your requests or concerns. Police officers who visit your home/office on their routine call are responsible for your neighborhood safety. Be familiar with them. You can always approach them/KOBAN and raise any concerns about problems in your neighborhood.
