H.E. the inspector General of Police and Customs has approved a deployment plan, which sets ROP procedures to deal with the pandemic

ROP personnel are ready and deployed in all governorates and wilayats to implement the Supreme Committee’s decisions of banning movements and closing all commercial activities from 8:00 PM to 5:00 AM.

All member of the society have to adhere to health instructions and procedures

There are some cases that are allowed to move between 8:00 pm till 5:00 am, such as travelers who are heading to or coming from the Airports as they must have their travel documents with them. Permission is also given to those who have emergency cases.

We express thanks to citizens and residents for their full cooperation and commitment in implementing decision of the Supreme Committee

Commitment is obvious during the movement ban period, there are some violations registered for those who did not wear masks in public and other places.

There is a legal mechanism in dealing with violations. ROP personnel stops the violator, give him/her the violation ticket and asks him/her to sign it. Violation fine must be paid as soon as possible, otherwise the violator will be referred to the public prosecution.
