To call some of the set-ups roadblocks, is actually to overly dignify it. I therefore call upon all commanders to ensure that members are properly and sufficiently briefed prior to deployment and thereafter effectively supervised. Roadblocks should be properly manned and members deployed should be animated and show confidence in what they would be doing. The practice of constricting the way by shutting one lane and then direct at motorists to simply pass without stopping and attending to them is improper. Oftentimes you see police officers causing unnecessary traffic bottlenecks by attending to a motorist right in the lane instead of a search bay that allows others to pass. Such a scenario apparently irks motorists and acts in cross purposes with our organisational vision.
