AMPANG: A total of 145 personnel will be on duty for various tasks during the movement control order in Ampang, says Ampang Jaya deputy OCPD Supt Mohd Azam Ismail.
He said the manpower will mainly comprise Ampang Jaya police personnel and assisted by Armed Forces personnel.
"We started the operation at 12am on Wednesday (Jan 13), the moment the MCO came into effect.
"We have various teams including four teams that will monitor compliance to standard operating procedure (SOP) and teams manning the roadblocks in the district," he told reporters at the scene early Wednesday morning.
Roadblocks will be set up at three locations in Ampang Jaya - at Jalan Hadapan Desa 288, Jalan Pandan Indah - Cheras and along the MRR2 near Klang Gates, he added.
"We will increase the number of roadblocks if the need arises.
"We are also assisted by Ampang Jaya Municipal Council (MPAJ), who are checking to ensure all business premises adhere to the SOP," Supt Mohd Azam said.
He reminded the public to always abide by the SOP set by the Health Ministry.
"Our ultimate goal is to curb the spread of the Covid-19.
"Lets play our part in the war against this pandemic," he said.
Action will be taken against those who failed to adhere to the SOP, Supt Mohd Azam said.
"We will take necessary actions, including issuing compounds for the SOP flouters," he said.
