Home Minister Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail said the decision to close the gates at a certain time was made to balance between the police station where people complain and protecting the police at the station.

He added that the police had been given clear instructions to re-examine and tighten their standard operating procedures for all their district headquarters and major stations, including the patrol frequencies.

In terms of the logistics situation at each police station, whether it’s lights, fences and so on, we issued instructions to immediately provide information and it will go through a process for us to improve.

It’s not yet known if this means crimes occurring after 10pm can only be reported when the station reopens the next day.

Nevertheless, shutting the police station does not make sense as the police need to tend to emergency cases as well.
