KUWAIT CITY, Jan 30: In adherence to the directives issued by the Acting Undersecretary of the Ministry of Interior, Lieutenant General Sheikh Salem Al-Nawaf, emphasizing the need to intensify security and traffic efforts nationwide, authorities recently conducted comprehensive campaigns to apprehend violators and maintain law and order.
The objective was to sternly address any threat to the country’s security and uphold traffic regulations. The operations, overseen by Major General Abdullah Al-Rajaib, Assistant Undersecretary of Public Security, Major General Yousef Al-Khuda, Director of the General Traffic Department, and Brigadier General Fares Al-Qahtani, Director of the General Department of Rescue, were executed in various regions, reports Al-Rai daily. Conducted over six hours, beginning at eleven o’clock in the evening and concluding at dawn, the campaigns focused on key areas such as Jaber Al-Ahmad, Saad Al-Abdullah, Kairouan, and the Second Ring Road.
The deployment of patrols and establishment of security checkpoints were key components of the strategy, aimed at ensuring continuous security presence and preventing any potential disruptions to the safety of citizens and residents. During the operations, 30 individuals were apprehended for violating residency laws, while over 20 others faced charges related to drug possession, abuse, and imprisonment sentences. A total of 600 traffic violations were issued to reckless drivers and judicially wanted vehicles were seized.
Additionally, six vehicles failing to meet security conditions were subjected to a block. The campaigns involved the strategic distribution of security personnel across various regions, with Public Security patrols covering Jahra Governorate and joint efforts from the General Department of Rescue and the General Traffic Department in the capital and Jahra. The “Rasid” device played a crucial role in the identification of wanted individuals and violators, expediting the process and allowing authorities to issue violations promptly through the Sahl application. Security sources emphasized that these campaigns aim to safeguard citizens and residents, acting as a deterrent to anyone contemplating actions that may destabilize security or violate the law. The initiatives align with the directives of the senior leadership within the Ministry of Interior, with a commitment to maintaining daily operations to ensure the country’s overall security.
