: Police will continue to adopt a more rigorous approach in enforcing the Movement Control Order (MCO) including patrolling residential and commercial areas here using the Aberdeen Patrol System.
Selangor Deputy Police Chief Datuk Arjunaidi Mohamed said since the implementation of the MCO, both residential and commercial areas were under less scrutiny as more attention was given to other methods.
He said with the MCO now into the third phase, the police would no longer adopt a soft approach by simply giving advice or warning but would continue to take decisive action in all areas.
"Enough with warnings, it's time for us to act as the community should understand and adapt to the current situation.
"The MCO has entered its third phase, there is no reason for people to disobey the MCO directives, regardless of Malaysians or foreigners," he said when launching the Aberdeen Patrol System at the Damansara Police Station on Thursday.
The Aberdeen Patrol system, in the name of a city in Scotland, uses several police patrol vehicles (MPVs), in bringing police and military to conduct patrols in identified areas.
He said each team would patrol for 45 minutes in one area before heading to a different location.
Arjunaidi said that currently, the implementation of the patrol system would be concentrated in the Petaling Jaya area and would be extended to other areas if it successfully increased the community's compliance with the MCO.
As of yesterday, the total number of arrests in Selangor was 2,255 and 1,050 people had been arraigned in court.
