Western Cape MEC of Community Safety Dan Plato has welcomed the increase in clampdown of crime within the police services.

This as three officers were arrested this week for allegedly stealing dagga from a crime scene and selling it off to drug dealers in Ocean View. 

Over the last three months over 20 police members have been arrested by the provincial Anti-Corruption Investigation Unit.

Ministerial Spokesperson Ewald Botha said MEC Plato urges the public to be vigilante in ensuring that anyone from the SAPS whose involved in criminal activity are identified and are reported to their local police stations.

Botha said members of the public can also alert the newly established office of the police Ombudsmen for cases for investigation or report it to the Department of Community Safety policing complaints hotline.

“The detection investigation and the arrest of officers within SAPS sends a strong message that crime does not pay no matter who you are and it also goes a long way to help restore the good name of policing in communities” Botha added.
