AMPANG: Jewellery shops and a pawnshop were among premises checked by the compliance operation task force on the first day of the tightened MCO 3.0.
Task force personnel were seen combing the area near Jalan Mamanda in Ampang Jaya.
Ampang Jaya deputy OCPD Supt Mohd Azam Ismail said the police in the district will focus on strengthening the compliance rounds to ensure that the SOP is adhered to.
“We only have one roadblock in the district, but we will focus on compliance operations.
“We will check all public areas such as business centres and malls,” he said when met during compliance rounds on Tuesday (May 25).
For the first day of the tightened MCO 3.0, Supt Mohd Azam said the task force performed inspections at shops and premises near Ampang Point shopping mall.
“All the shops, including jewellery shops and a pawnshop, adhered to the ruling.
“The management complied with the government ruling, which allows only 60% of the workforce at premises,” he added.
However, two compounds were issued to two workers of an outlet at the mall for not scanning the MySejahtera application, Supt Mohd Azam said.
Two compliance operation task force teams will be deployed daily to make their rounds, he added.
“Each team consists of four or five personnel.
“However, we are boosted with an additional 25 Federal Reserved Unit personnel during the weekends.
“They will assist with compliance inspections,” Supt Mohd Azam added.
As of Monday (May 24), Ampang Jaya police have issued 655 compounds for various SOP violations this year.
“We have also opened 17 investigation papers,” he said.
