Vital installations, institutions of higher learning, tourist sites, shopping malls, social places, highway and bus termini will be manned round the clock according to the police boss.
"Residents should report any suspicious character that goes roaming at odd hours," he said.
"Such as person will be behaving in a manner likely to breach the peace and therefore, I have issued arrest order."
On his part, Jomvu MP Badi Twalib appealed for enhanced security.
Twalib said police should ensure the safety for those venturing out to offer the nightly special prayers in mosques.
He spoke at Kwa Jomvu Primary School on Tuesday.
