: Police are urging the people of Selangor to bring along any home address bills if there is a need for them to leave home for purposes allowed during phase two of the Movement Control Order (MCO) period.
This is to show they are compliant with Regulation 4, Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases (Steps in the Infectious Diseases Local Areas) 2020.
To this end, the police will seek additional information from the public in its efforts to tighten the implementation of the MCO which has entered its second phase.
Selangor Police Contingent spokesman ACP Mohd Ismail Muslim said the excuse for wanting to go home besides going out to buy groceries were among the common excuses people used in roadblocks in the period of the MCO.
"There are a lot of people who give excuses of going to the shops, from the shops to returning home ... So, we will get additional information such as confirmation of payment of electricity, water bills and so on.
"With the confirmation, the police can be sure of their movements," he said at a press conference at the Selangor Contingent Police Headquarters on Thursday.
Selangor Police had received 350 reports on offences pertaining to the MCO and had made 727 arrests since April 1.
Police hoped that the public will continue to adhere to directives of the MCO to break the COVID-19 chain which has now shown positive developments besides getting good cooperation from the people.
