IGP: We are on highest security alert

Bukit Aman is in a state of highest security alert following several terrorist related incidents in the last few months, with the latest occurring in Jakarta, said Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar.

The IGP said police have been stepping up preventive measures to pre-empt such atrocities from happening in Malaysia.

“We also increased security measures at public places, including shopping malls and tourist spots.

“Extra precautionary actions will also be implemented in border areas to prevent possible infiltration by terrorist elements,” he said in a statement on Thursday.

Those suspected of being involved in terrorist activities will be closely monitored, added the country’s top cop.

“Police personnel nationwide are on constant vigilance.

“We are closely monitoring the latest developments to ensure the safety and security of the people,” he said.
