No PDRM roadblocks on dangerous stretches, bends

The police will not set up roadblocks on dangerous stretches such as hilly routes or bends. This is according to deputy home minister Datuk Seri Shamsul Anuar Hj Nasarah, who said that blocks in such areas would only be done if there’s an accident.

“At hills or bends, it’s not roadblocks, but more to controlling traffic until the accident is cleared and investigation is completed,” he said in parliament last week, in response to a question by Labis MP Pang Hok Liong, who asked about PDRM’s standard operating procedures when it comes to roadblocks.

Pang also asked about cops who abuse their power and do not follow roadblock SOPs, to which Shamsul Anuar replied that PDRM has its SOPs that needs to be adhered to by personnel at roadblocks. He said that should there be any non-compliance of SOPs, investigations will be made by the in-house Jabatan Integriti dan Pematuhan Standard (JIPS), BH reported.

“This means we cannot simply allow our officers to conduct their duties without following SOPs. There will be action taken taken by JIPS, PDRM,” Shamsul Anuar added. What’s the most unexpected or even ‘dangerous’ place you’ve encountered a roadblock before?
