TANGKAK: Johor police willplace traffic personnel at 37 locations identified as accident hotspots in its “Op Selamat 16” throughout the Chinese New Year festive period.

Police chief Datuk Mohd Kamarudin Md Din said a total of 497 traffic police officers and personnel were assigned to carry out traffic monitoring and enforcement duties in the state during the period.

“At the same time, we mobilised 567 personnel and officers for crime prevention, as well as to monitor and maintain public order,” he said at the Tangkak district police headquarters here.

Earlier, Mohd Kamarudin witnessed the handing over of duties as Tangkak police chief by Supt Mohad Idris Samsuri to Supt Mohd Fadhil Minhat. Supt Mohd Fadhil, who previously served as the deputy chief of the Terengganu Crime Investigation Department (Intelligence/Operations), replaced Mohad Idris, who is retiring after more than 41 years with the police force.

Meanwhile, Mohd Kamarudin advised those heading out of town during festive seasons to inform the police of their absence via digital forms.

“Monitoring will be done by officers and personnel who will patrol the housing areas to prevent any house break-ins,” he added. — Bernama
