Mayoral Committee Member for Safety
and Security JP Smith said he is pleased with the arrest of a man who allegedly
shot and injured a City of Cape Traffic
The 41-year-old was arrested after
he shot the officer outside his home in March in Rocklands, Mitchell’s
Smith added that when the man was
arrested he was also found to be in possession of a 2.2 pistol.
“This is one of six officers in the
city that have been injured since the beginning of this year. This particular
case is the first one where we have had a real breakthrough” Smith added.
Smith empathized that they are
working closely with the National Prosecuting Authority to achieve a conviction. If we cannot protect our members in uniform
then they cannot protect the public.
