Members of the local SAPS rubbed shoulders with the public on Saturday at the White River Square shopping centre to introduce all the Polsec structures cooperating in in the fight against crime.
“Our objective is to establish and maintain partnerships between the community and the police, and promote effective communication,” said communications officer Sgt Cynthia Mbokodo. “Through this we want to promote cooperation to fulfil the needs of the community regarding crime.”
In an earlier statement the police warned homeowners who are in the process of selling their houses not to leave the property vacant or unattended until the process has been finalised.
That warning came after several incidents of burglaries were reported at the station regarding such properties having been burgled and electric appliances such as stoves, plugs, wall cupboards and light fittings stolen.
“Activate your house alarm when you leave your house,” the statement suggested.
