"The Inspector-General of Police has already instructed us to increase security at police stations and district headquarters.

"Only individuals having dealings with the police will be allowed in. For example, if anyone says they want to come in just to eat at the canteen, we will not allow it," he told reporters at state police headquarters here on Monday (May 20).

He said they were also installing CCTVs at strategic locations in police stations and district police headquarters around the state.

"Adding more manpower during night shifts... will also improve response time to any incidents which threaten security," he said.
