By using the helmet, members of the Assistance Police (PB) who monitor the daily commute will recognise passengers via the advanced technology method. Hopefully, the approach introduced would improve passenger confidence in the usage of KTMB services during such nerve-wrecking challenging times like these.

In order to determine the effectiveness of the helmet, it would be worn on a trial basis by the PB members for the time being.

All the best KTM Berhad! A good initiative indeed!
