"These measures include intensifying security and traffic awareness campaigns, organized and supervised by the Security Media Department (SMD)," Director of the General Department of Public Relations and Morale Guidance Brig. Adel Al-Hashash told KUNA in a statement here on Saturday.
The MoI works in collaboration with all media outlets to guarantee trouble-free celebrations, Al-Hashash, also SMD acting director, said. The SMD prepared an integrated media plan for the celebrations of the national days in line with a comprehensive media plan conducted by the supreme security committee in collaboration with all security apparatuses, he noted.
He added the media plan is carried out under the directions of Deputy Prime Minister and Interior Minister Sheikh Mohammad Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah and MoI Undersecretary Lieutenant General Suleiman Al-Fahad.
The SMD coordinated with all media outlets and instructed radio and TV programs on security to urge citizens to cooperate with traffic men and policemen to avoid any violations and maintain discipline, Al-Hashash pointed out.
He appealed to citizens not to use spraying tools and fireworks, calling on youngsters to abide by the legal speed limits when driving their vehicles and not to violate traffic signs. He congratulated citizens on the national days and hoped the country further progress, prosperity and stability.
