Police and Prisons Civil Rights Union welcomes the latest crime statistics
released by the Minister of Police, and is of the view that they are more of a
social problem reflection that a police problem.
secretary Richards Mabololo in a statement says Police are often put to the
front and usually take the blame for the increase in criminal activities, while
consideration is not fully made regarding the role they all need to
collectively play with communities, business and government departments, among
others, in taking necessary measures to prevent crime.
added that they are of the view that the outcomes of these statistics should
not be approached in an abstract manner, but should result in a cohesive
approach that would ensure all role players form part of finding long-term
solutions to the worrying trends they have witnessed over the years.
