In a couple of weeks, the familiar sight of guards in white shirts from Guardian Security Consultancy will be replaced by that of men in blue from Jerai Security Services Sdn Bhd (Jerai).
Let us thank the Guardian guards from a faraway land for their services and it should be noted that the constant breakdowns in equipment over the past few months and the behavior of certain homeowners have not made their jobs any easier.
The blues are presently responsible for guard services in Precinct 2 (having taken over the duties from PRISM Security not so long ago). Following more than a month of observation, Jerai has now been handed the mandate, which is renewable annually, to take over the guard services for the entire development we have today.
The company (TriCalibre Security) that provides the guard for Senangin Pier will also cease in January thus putting an end to a confusing situation of having three service providers in a small community. It has been problematic at Senangin because anglers who call up the principal guardhouse to find out, for example, why there is no guard present will often be told that the contractor is another company so there is not much they can do to help.
The changing of the guards is expected to be completed by mid January, 2012.
New Jetty in Precinct 2
I have been informed that the name for the new jetty in Precinct 2 has not been settled so if anyone has a nice name to suggest, please do so. As you know, the jetty in Precinct 1 is named Senangin Pier. If the ‘fish theme’ is
maintained then another fish should follow. I do not suppose the word ‘pier’ is sacrosanct and to get the ball rolling, I would just venture the name ‘Siakap Point’. Let’s hear more interesting names.
