Ampang Jaya police station reopens after virus scare

AMPANG: The Ampang Jaya police station is now open to public following a thorough sanitisation process.

Ampang Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Mohamad Farouk Eshak said the public could now visit the station to lodge police reports and apply for interstate or inter-district travel permits from yesterday evening.

“The sanitisation was conducted by the Fire and Rescue Department and NGOs.

“We hope the public will still adhere to the Covid-19 standard operating procedure when they are at the station, ” he said when contacted.

It was initially reported that actions such as lodging police reports and applying for travel permits were suspended at the Ampang Jaya police station from Feb 23 until March 1.

This came after 11 personnel at the police station tested positive for Covid-19. No others have been infected since.

The affected police personnel are believed to have been infected by several detainees who had the virus.

However, the operations of other police stations within the Ampang Jaya district are not affected by this latest development.
