Cops to keep eye on social distancing in Klang Valley

PETALING JAYA: Selangor police will continue to take steps to ensure the public comply with the conditional movement control order (MCO).

Selangor CID chief Senior Asst Comm Datuk Fadzil Ahmat said their operations were still ongoing to prevent Covid-19 infections.

“We will send our teams to public areas to ensure they abide by the guidelines set by the government.

“Maintaining social distancing is a must and that is one of the main things our teams will be looking out for when advising the public,” he said at the Selangor police headquarters yesterday.

The teams will be equipped with loud hailers to make announcements and give advice at public places such as shopping malls, hypermarkets and markets.

“Yesterday, we sent out a team led by Asst Supt Noorhamasiren Boonthnam Ekkasook from Selangor CID. Her team will be going to Mutiara Damansara to remind people to maintain social distancing and abide by the law,” he said.

Meanwhile, Kuala Lumpur police chief Comm Datuk Seri Mazlan Lazim said they have set up 142 compliance teams comprising 926 personnel.

“They will be going out to ensure the 13 non-permitted activities such as cultural activities, entertainment, arts, religious activities and social gatherings involving close contact between people do not occur.

“We advise the public to comply with the guidelines to ensure the health and safety of everyone.

“Your cooperation is key to breaking the chain of infection,” he said in a statement where he also urged anyone with information or enquiries to call the police at 03-2115 9999.
