The 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.
 POPCRU 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.

Mabololo 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.
