Six SOP-breaking individuals were compounded and issued summonses during an operation by the Ipoh District Police Headquarters (IPD) yesterday (May 25).
According to the Ipoh IPD chief Assistant Commissioner A. Asmadi Abdul Aziz, the issue was brought to attention by a Facebook user that goes by the name ‘Lieza Azahar’.
“The comment went viral and caught the public’s attention, particularly Ipohites.
“The Tambun Police Station subsequently performed an operation to monitor SOP compliance around Dataran Perpaduan 3 in Taman Bercham Raya between 5pm to 7pm yesterday.
“Investigations found six individuals aged between 18 to 64 breaking a multitude of SOPs during the ongoing Hulu Kinta Subdistrict’s enhanced movement control order (EMCO), such as two persons riding on a motorcycle.
“As a result, they were issued with six compounds for non-compliance, on top of eight summonses over traffic offences,” A. Asmadi explained to the media via WhatsApp.
He reminded that the police and other enforcement authorities are constantly on the lookout for EMCO SOP compliance in the entire subdistrict.
“Strict actions will be taken against those who fail to comply. The police appreciate any information and/or responses regarding SOP compliance.
“However, we hope that they are only channeled via the Hulu Kinta Subdistrict EMCO Disaster Operations Control Centre (PKOB) at 016 944 1500 / 05 526 1453 / 05 526 0235 or Ipoh IPD’s disaster control centre (DCC) at 05 254 2222,” he expressed.
