Special Team for Targeted SOP Monitoring

The police of Perak plans to establish a centralised and integrated monitoring team which will be performing targeted SOP compliance monitoring activities.

According to the state police chief Datuk Mior Faridalathrash Wahid, the monitoring team is to comprise personnel from state-level security agencies, such as the National Security Council (MKN) and The People’s Volunteer Corps (RELA).

“This will also involve staff of the Ministry of Health (MOH), Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI), Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs (MDTCA) and local authorities (PBT).

“Monitoring will be based on reports regarding SOP non-compliance lodged by the public,” he explained to reporters via WhatsApp today (June 12).

 

SOP Compliance Rate in Perak at 96 Percent

Meanwhile, Mior mentioned that from June 1 to 11, the most common type of SOP non-compliance found among the public is failure to wear masks, whereby 244 compounds pertaining to the offence had been issued.

“This is out of 1,239 total compounds issued for various records of non-compliance.

“However, the percentage of SOP compliance in the state stays rather high, at 96 percent,” he added.

63 roadblocks (SJR) have been established around the state, which Mior said will be added based on the latest requirements.

“Some 339 SOP compliance monitoring teams have been mobilised for higher frequency of spot checks.

“There’ll also be mobile SJR and snap check operations, especially at shortcuts,” he further stated.
