Our duties will remain unchanged during this MCO, says IGP

KUALA LUMPUR: The police will focus on their core duty of ensuring the safety and security of the people, especially in enforcing the standard operating procedure (SOP) as well as rules and regulations of the movement control order put in place to combat Covid-19.

The duties of the police force remain unchanged after the proclamation of Emergency, said Tan Sri Abdul Hamid Bador.

“The military, Rela and other relevant agencies will continue to assist the police in enforcement efforts, just like during the first MCO.

“Our priority is to curb the spread of Covid-19, ” the IGP said.

He had said Bukit Aman would take sterner action against any individual who violates the SOP during the MCO that started today.

During the last MCO, police personnel were tasked with handling various duties, including manning roadblocks and leading the compliance task force, which performed inspections nationwide.

Abdul Hamid had also said the police were on standby to conduct enforcement operations nationwide, including setting up roadblocks, and to enforce all rules and regulations set by the Health Ministry and National Security Council.
