Police, security, CPFs and residents in Pretoria North joined hands to tackle crime and cleaned the streets on Friday morning.

Ward councillor Yolanda Duvenage applauded the authorities and teams involved in the operation.

“Altogether 40 people were arrested this morning,” said Duvenage.

“Illegal immigrants and people in possession of drugs and dangerous weapons were taken into custody by SAPS.”

She said Tshwane metro police assisted in tackling bylaw transgressions.

“An ‘order to rectify’ was issued at a spaza shop and five people were issued warnings for bylaw transgressions.”

CPF sector 1 and 2, ADT and Sefikile security joined the successful operation.

“About 127 illegal posters were also removed from road signs,” said Duvenage.

“I take my hat off to everyone involved to make our streets cleaner and safer. Thank you for your service to our community.”
