On 29 June 2018, Sutera Harbour Resort became the first resort in Sabah, Malaysia to be granted by the Royal Malaysia Police with an auxiliary police unit.
The first batch of 12 staff has been sent for an intensive training, which includes martial arts, firearms training, physical exercise and learning various aspects of the laws at the Ulu Kinta General Operations Force Training Centre in Perak.
The unit had a photo taking session with Deputy Chief Executive Officer, Mr Gerard Tan at the Lobby of The Magellan Sutera Resort today, 21 May 2019.
Gerard said “Having our own auxiliary police unit will definitely enhance the safety and security of our staff and guests, which are the top of our priorities.”
The auxiliary police unit is not only responsible in ensuring the safety and security of the Resort but also able to exercise the rights to conduct patrols, preventing crime, as well as detecting and arresting criminals in the vicinity of the Resort. They are there to ensure visitors/tourists have peace of mind when they venture out to enjoy the sights and sounds at the Resort.
The establishment of this Auxiliary Police Unit will help to complement and enhance the present security in line with the Resort efforts in making Sutera Harbour Resort one of the safest Resorts in Sabah, Malaysia.
