The Capital Governorate Patrol Department, in conjunction with the General Department of Rescue Police Patrols, conducted a thorough traffic security operation in the Jaber Al-Ahmad region over the course of the weekend. The campaign sought to address security problems in the area and was carried out under the direction of Major General Abdullah Al-Rajaib, the Acting Assistant Undersecretary of the Ministry of Interior for Public Security, Traffic Affairs, and Operations Affairs.
All governorate-level Police Rescue Patrol Departments, Convoy Patrol Departments, and the Northern and Southern Roads actively participated in the operation, which was overseen by Brigadier General Fares Al-Qahtani, Director General of the General Department of Police Rescue, and Brigadier General Hamlan Al-Hamlan, Director of the Capital Patrols Department.
Significant campaign outcomes included 716 different traffic infractions being issued and 18 people being jailed for not having proper identification. In a news release, Major Abdullah Bu Hassan, an officer in the Traffic and Operations Sector’s Public Relations and Traffic Awareness Department, offered details on the project.
The General Department of Rescue Police Patrols, according to Bu Hassan, has developed a unique plan to improve security and control traffic in the Jaber Al-Ahmad region. Reports from the Interior Department’s Operations Department revealed a state of security anarchy in the area, characterized by recklessness and the presence of “loose workers,” which spurred the creation of this strategy.
In response to these worries, every rescue squad placed itself in pre-arranged positions throughout the area, blocking doors and opening only when mobile patrols roved the grounds to confirm the nationalities of foreign laborers.
The administration of the capital’s rescue patrol was given instructions by Brigadier General Al-Qahtani to carry out a weekend security strategy that would target illegal workers, marginal laborers, and those who commit major traffic infractions. Bu Hassan emphasized that the rescue patrol teams, which were dispatched from several departments, set up both stationary and mobile checkpoints in order to maintain security, capture people who are wanted, hunt down careless offenders, and arrest errant employees.
Notably, the campaign led to the arrest of two people who were reported to the General Administration for Narcotics Control for the possession and use of narcotic substances. Two more were turned over to the Jaber Al-Ahmad police station after being discovered in an unusual state. Along with 16 others accused of having their residence expired, 13 foreign nationals whose cases of absence were recorded on the computer were also taken into custody.
Al-Gharib reported that the police had successfully detained nine people who had active arrest orders from both security and judicial institutions, as well as two expatriates whose entry visas had expired. In addition, two cars sought in relation to security issues were seized, and eighteen individuals without identification were placed in detention. The final result emphasizes how dedicated law enforcement is to maintaining both regional security and traffic safety.
