Western Cape K-9 units take active stand against crime

The Mossel Bay, Overstrand and Swartland K-9 Units in the Western Cape have been actively combatting crime in their respective areas.

This comes after the units, with several local law enforcement agencies and the South African Police Service, made 28 arrests for a range of offences.

The Mossel Bay K-9 unit arrested an individual for the possession of pain tablets.

The Western Cape MEC for Police Oversight and Community Safety, Reagen Allen, says these successes demonstrate how the units are actively working to create a safer environment.

Western Cape Minister of Police Oversight and Community Safety, Reagen Allen said, “These successes demonstrate how our K9 and RSU’s are actively working to ensure greater safety is achieved in the areas where they operate, and by extension across the entire Western Cape. It brings me a moment of joy when I see how our provincial safety plan is being actioned, and how the residents of the Western Cape are benefitting from it. As the Western Cape Government, we will continue to support our units, as it is important to us that our citizens can live in dignified communities. I also urge our residents to not stop working with these units, as this will assist in ensuring that criminal activities come to an end.”
