Operation Jalan Raya and Operation Selamat launched by Miri Police for Aidilfitri

Millimeter: Miri Police Headquarters (IPD Miri) on Monday (April 8) launched Operation Jalan Raya and Operation Selamat, which will be carried out for six days to coincide with the upcoming Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebrations.

The launch of this operation is a proactive step to ensure the safety and security of the community during the festive period.

This activity combines the efforts of law enforcement agencies to address two important aspects: reducing traffic accidents and preventing criminal activity.

Regarding the road safety operation, Miri OCPD ACP Alexon Naga Chubu said they had identified five areas to carry out Operation Jalan Raya. Miri Street Bypass. Jalan Bakam. Miri Coastal Road and Pan Borneo Highway.

Meanwhile, according to statistics released by IPD Miri, road safety has improved significantly from 2022 to 2023.

A total of 60 accidents were recorded in Miri in 2022, highlighting the high number of road accidents during this period.

However, a positive trend is that in 2023, the number will decrease to 53, indicating a decline in road accidents within Miri district.

Operation Selamat will increase police presence in residential areas as part of the crime prevention strategy.

ACP Alexson said police may also carry out vehicle inspections to ensure road suitability and compliance with safety regulations.

At the same time, security measures have been strengthened to protect homes and property while families are away visiting relatives or attending celebratory gatherings.

“This includes increasing police presence in residential areas, community support programs to educate residents about crime prevention strategies, and working with neighborhood watch groups to increase vigilance.”

Police are also appealing to the public, especially those returning to their villages and hometowns to celebrate Hari Raya, to prioritize their safety and the safety of their loved ones.

“The key advice is to inform police of your travel plans by completing the Volunteer Smartphone (VSP) form, visit your local police station or call 085-43400 /085-43373.”
