On behalf of the residents in USJ 11/3, we would like to welcome our new neighbors who have moved in or are in the midst of moving into our neighborhood. We would like to let you know that the security services are from contributions of the residents here. We hope you will support along with the rest of us for the sake of our safety and the safety of our families.
The fee is RM50 a month payable every six months, for a 24 hour non-stop security services. You can make payment to your respective Street Leaders. Their names and contact are published in the website. Please contact them or any of the Committee members should you have any queries.
Meanwhile for our existing members, collection for your security services for the period of October 2011 – March 2012 is still on-going. Please do make your payments as soon as possible if you have not already done so.
Please make your cheque payable to “Persatuan Penduduk USJ 11/3, Subang Jaya, Selangor”. Please make sure the name is complete and do pass it to your Street Leader once you have done that. Do remember to ask for your receipts as you will need it in event of insurance claims.
As usual, here are some latest updates to keep you in the know.
Annual General Meeting:
We will be having our AGM for our Resident’s Association on Saturday, 18 February 2012. The venue will be at the USJ 11/3 playground at 4:30pm. We are inviting all of you to attend this important meeting whereby the audited accounts will be presented along with the paying and non-paying residents list. Elections for the new Committee will also be conducted so please do attend.
This will be followed by our “Get to know your new Committee for 2012” family gathering. We will be inviting some VIPs to come and grace the occasion where free food and drinks will be served that night. This will also give us the opportunity to get all the residents together for a night of fun in our ‘kampung”. More details to follow in future newsletters.
Insurance Claim for Burglar Victim in USJ 11/3L:
The Committee will be handing over a cheque of about RM10,000 to another victim in USJ 11/3L. They were victims of a robbery by a masked gang a few months ago. The money was claimed on their behalf from the Insurance Company where we took the policy from.
Just so you know, this is the second claim we have made from the Insurance Company. The first was for a burglar victim from USJ 11/3A of which payment was also made to them a couple of months ago.
For your information, the Insurance Policy, which is still in force, was taken out by the Committee to cover all the paying resident’s losses in event of a burglar/robbery in their homes with the security funds that we have collected. Again, we hope all the residents will continue to support our security scheme by continuing to pay the subscriptions.
Here is a very important reminder - please ensure you keep the receipts for the subscription to prove that you have made payment as without that we cannot make the claims.
Maintenance work such as repairs and painting will be carried out on our infrastructure for our security such as our guard house, the chain link fence, the drums, etc. We apologize if there may be inconvenienced caused.
We will also be requesting a high fence be built behind the new bungalows, just new to the Futsal court in our USJ 11/3 playground, to prevent balls from being kicked into their compound.
With many new security guards being deployed in our area, we noticed that some of these new guards failed to carry out their duties properly. We have taken up this matter with the security company concerned to ensure that such issues are addressed. If you do come across the guards not doing their duty, kindly note down the time, date and if possible the guard’s name (or a photo of them) and pass this information to the Committee for further action.
With so many renovations going on, we will also be getting the Police to make checks on the renovation sites so as to ensure that there are no illegal workers, working in our area. There have been cases of petty crime reported near to some of these houses under renovation. Although we do not know if these workers at these construction sites were the culprits, we would, nonetheless, like to take some precautionary measures by ensuring these checks are carried out.
An innovative idea has been contributed by one of our residents on the improvement of our security in our area. We will be introducing compact cameras to the guards manning the entrance into our area. In cases where the drivers coming into our area, refuses to sign on the forms provided or if they appear suspicious, the guards will snap a picture of their vehicles and their faces for our record using these compact cameras.
It will be time stamped and will be kept for a period of time where the pictures will be deleted if it is not needed. So next time your friends and relatives are stopped at the check-points, tell them to “SMILE” as they may be photographed by our guards!
This will also act as a deterrent to “would-be-criminals” as their faces and cars will be captured by these compact cameras besides our CCTV.
With the holiday season just around the corner, we would like to remind all residents going away during this period to exercise care and take the necessary precaution by securing your homes, leave the light on in your car porch and back lanes and inform your neighbors. Please do leave them your contact so that if anything untoward were to happen, you will be contactable.
This being the last newsletter for 2011, the Committee would like to wish all of our Christian friends, “Merry Christmas” and to the rest of the residents, “Happy New Year”!!

Burglary victim gets insurance payout thanks to USJ11/3 Residents Association's initiative
AN innovative initiative to insure all 500 houses who had subscribed to the Gated & Guarded scheme by the USJ11/3 Residents Association paid off when one house owner whose house was burgled received a “small windfall”.K.K. Ng, 64 received his insurance payout of RM9,925 recently from committee members of the association led by its chairman Ng Peng Hin.
“We insured every household for RM10,000 each in the eventuality of a burglary.”
“This is the first claim to be paid out by the insurance company since we started almost a year ago,” Ng said.
According to Ng, every household contributed RM50 monthly for security guards, maintenance of the fencing parameter and CCTV among others under their G&G scheme.
“We had some excess funds from the RM50 we collected from each household. So we invested it in insurance to cover for burglaries,” Ng said. K.K. Ng said although the amount was not enough to cover his losses, he was happy to receive the insurance payout.
“The break-in happened in June and we got the payout this month,” he said.
