JPJ officers deployed to assist KL police in MCO enforcement

KUALA LUMPUR: Forty officers from the Road Transport Department (JPJ) have been deployed to assist police in monitoring the enforcement of the movement control order (MCO) in the city.

Kuala Lumpur JPJ director Mohd Zaki Ismail said department personnel are currently assisting the police's Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department (JSPT) at roadblocks set up at Jalan Duta and Sungai Besi.

"Our initial checks revealed that motorists are complying with the standard operating procedures (SOP) for the MCO.

"When stopped at the roadblocks, they were able to show letters from their respective employers," he told reporters at the Jalan Duta roadblock on Monday (Jan 18).

Zaki said JPJ is committed to assisting the police throughout the MCO.

"We also have our mobile units doing patrols to ensure public adherence to the SOP," he added.
