SERDANG: The Selangor police are ready to handle the enhanced movement control order (MCO) in Kuala Langat and Hulu Langat, says state police chief Comm Datuk Noor Azam Jamaludin (pic).
“We will not be alone in enforcing the order and will have assistance from Rela and the Armed Forces.
“There will be shifts of 66 personnel on duty at all times to ensure everyone complies with the order, ” he told reporters after witnessing the handing over of duty ceremony of the Serdang OCPD yesterday.
Comm Noor Azam said he was aware of complaints of foreigners leaving these areas before the enhanced MCO took effect.
“We can only enforce the order within the specific time frame that has been announced.
“We cannot stop or take action against anyone who moves outside the time frame.”
It was reported that three more areas – two in Selangor and one in Sarawak – have been placed under the enhanced MCO due to a spike in cases in these localities.
In Selangor, the affected areas are Flat Sungai Emas in Jalan Sungai Emas 1 and Jalan Sungai Emas 2 in Kuala Langat involving 1,300 residents, and Plaza Hentian Kajang in Hulu Langat with 7,500 residents.
Comm Noor Azam said a police officer from the Subang Jaya police headquarters and his wife who worked at the Kajang personnel branch had tested positive for Covid-19.
“We also have 44 personnel under home quarantine at the moment, ” he said, adding that his personnel were prepared to face these situations.
