The Road Transport Department (JPJ) has deployed a total of 1,200 officers in order to aid the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) during the reinstated Movement Control Order (MCO).

This collaboration is part of the efforts to help PDRM monitor the traffic situation as they work to ensure all residents within areas that are currently observing MCO and Conditional MCO adhere to the strict standard operating procedures (SOP).

Duties that the JPJ officers will be carrying out include patrolling the main roads and highways, provide reinforcement at roadblocks, and performing checks at busy bus terminals such as KL Sentral and Southern Integrated Transport Terminal, or better known as the Terminal Bersepadu Selatan (TBS).

JPJ officers are tasked to refer any wrongdoings to Act 333 of the Road Transport Act 1987, the Land Public Transport Agency (APAD), and Commercial Vehicle Licensing Board Act (LPKP) 1987.
