Thomas 09 May
2014 Police in the Western Cape have confirmed
that 30 criminal cases related to elections were reported since February in the
province, off which 12 were under the Electoral Act and 18 were common law
Provincial Police Commissioner Arno Lamoer
said the role the police had in these elections and how everything was executed
Lamoer talks about some hotspots the areas
that were identified before the elections.
Lamoer said although the hotspots were
identified due to certain issues the intervention by police officers and
commanders in different community were superb and that is the reason why we
didn’t have problems in those areas.
Lamoer said our intelligence community play
a great role firstly by identifying the areas and secondly being in touch with
the community giving us the information that we need to ensure that there
aren’t any problems within those specific areas.
“The one thing we must understand we knew
that is going to be the
year for elections and since last year June/July we started with our planning
we started with all our information gathering.
That is how far we went to ensure the
smooth running of elections Lamoer added.
