Security in Married Quarters Guidance
Report any suspicious activity or crime to the RMP immediately. Burglars can only be caught if you provide the RMP with as much information as possible to help them understand the criminals’ behavior. Brunei is still one of the safest postings the Forces has to offer when it comes to theft related crime. However, thieves are nearly always opportunistic and will target homes where they perceive security to be weak. Please do not leave your possessions insecure. All personnel are reminded to be vigilant at all times and to take necessary measures to deter burglars. Detailed advice can be sought from the RMP but sensible measures include:
a. Make sure to lock all doors and windows when you are out of the house or asleep at night.
b. Ask your neighbors to keep an eye on your house if you are away.
c. Put external lights on at night time.
d. Make sure you keep valuable items out of sight from any window and keep curtains drawn if possible.
e. Do not leave all your valuable items in one place. Instead keep them separate and in the least obvious place. Keep photocopies of important documents separate from the originals.
f. Take photographs of items of significant value or sentimental value.
If you have been the victim of crime or if you do see anything suspicious then please call RMP IMMEDIATELY on 8330252.
HQ BFB wants to remind all personnel including civilians, contractors and families to remain vigilant in their own personal security and the security of BFB as a whole.
Remaining vigilant is also proven to reduce crime and acts as a deterrent against opportunist thefts.

· Unidentified persons watching BFB, videoing or taking photos.
· Being followed by suspicious persons.
· Unidentified persons hanging around in the same spot every day.
· Persons walking around SFA areas looking lost.
· Suspicious vehicles driving or riding slowly around or parked with persons observing
