The Police and Prisons Civil Rights
Union said it appreciates the efforts made by the SAPS to fight crime
especially that there has been a decrease in some serious crimes.
Popcru Spokesperson Theto Mahlakoana
said the increase in the murder rate is a great concern to them as there is
absolutely nothing more significant than human life.
“We should be ensuring that lives
are protected. We do appeal with SAPS to ensure that more efforts are put into
that to ensure that category of crime goes down instead of increasing,” Mahlakoana
She further added that they are also
concerned of cause by the sexual offence crimes that were reported although
there has been a 0.4% decrease.
“We feel that it is not significant
we need to see a much large number of a decrease because we believe there’s
been an outcry in the public for us to all to be aware of sexual offences, rape
crime,” Mahlakoana said
