Selangor police to beef up its security following attack


SHAH ALAM: To boost response times and prevent untoward incidents, Selangor will see an increase in police personnel on night shifts.

State police chief Comm Datuk Hussein Omar Khan also mentioned plans to enhance security measures at police stations and headquarters.

The initiative follows the recent attack at the Ulu Tiram police station in Johor last Friday, which resulted in the deaths of two policemen.

“The Inspector General has already instructed us to increase security at police stations and district police headquarters,” said Datuk Hussein at the Selangor police headquarters yesterday.

“Only individuals with police-related matters will be permitted entry.

“For instance, those who wish to enter solely for dining at the police canteen will be denied access,” he added.

Selangor police are also currently in the process of installing closed-circuit television (CCTV) at key locations within police compounds to strengthen security measures.

“Among the things we are also looking at is adding more manpower during night shifts.

“This will enhance our response time in case of any security-threatening incidents,” Comm Hussein said.
