Rietgat police out to tackle crime

Members of the Rietgat SAPS patrolling their policing precinct to ensure police visibility.

Rietgat police have stepped up efforts to ensure police visibility in their precinct.

Police spokesperson Captain Stephen Maluleka said police were heeding the police minister, Bheki Cele’s call of increasing police visibility and stabilising crime in the country.

“As a result, Rietgat SAPS have ensured that all the officers doing administrative duties are out in the streets to augment police visibility while making sure that the people of Soshanguve are and feel safe and their properties are protected at all times,” said Maluleka.

He said the objective was to prevent and fight crimes such as cash-in-transit heists, murders, business and house robberies, carjacking, public violence, taxi violence and related crimes.

“The station has so far, through these measures, been making arrests during patrols since this drive started early this month,” he said.

He said the station had worked out a rotation plan aimed at increasing visibility at shopping complexes, taxi ranks, train station, business sites such as funeral parlours, schools, supermarkets, tuck shops, filling stations as well as traffic circles.

“We conduct cordon and search operations, roadblocks and search for wanted suspects,” he said.

Station commander Dikeledi Hlatshwayo said that no stone will be left unturned during this stabilisation period and everyone should do their part in combatting crime within the Rietgat’s policing precinct.

She also made a clarion call to the community to inform the station about any acts of criminality the community members may witness, no matter how big or small it may be.

For any information on crime within the Rietgat police station’s precinct, call 012-432-7806 / 7807 or 10111 or SMS Crimeline at 32211 and remain anonymous.
