Penang Police better than Interpol!

I read this with amazement in the Star Online :

"GEORGE TOWN: Penang has seen a 0.9% rise in crime but the state is still number one in the country when it comes to solving cases.

State chief police officer Deputy Comm Datuk Wira Ayub Yaakob said Penang recorded 13,114 crime cases from Jan 1 to Sept 24 this year, a slight increase from last year’s 12,991.

“There were 2,507 violent crimes and 10,484 property crimes last year. This year, the number of violent crimes reported has decreased by 148, but property crimes have gone up to 10,755,” he said.

Penang is still the leading state when it comes to solving cases, with a rate of 53.1%.

The national target is just 45% while Interpol is at 20%,” he said during a Community Policing Forum organised by the State Security and Public Safety Consultative Council on Sunday."

Now isn't that just mind boggling? Anyone staying in Penang and has had the pleasure of making a police report will know the efficiency and effectiveness of our crime solving police.
