Leap officers arrested 747 people for various crimes.

The Western Cape’s Police Oversight and Community Safety MEC, Reagen Allen, has applauded the work of the Law Enforcement Advancement Plan (Leap) officers in fighting crime in the province.

Leap officers are part of the provincial safety plan. The plan aims to halve murders in the province.

Leap officers arrested 747 suspects for various crimes between December last year and January this year.

The suspects that were arrested included:

12 for the possession of illegal firearms

14 for the possession of imitation firearms

51 for the possession of dangerous weapons

501 for the possession of drugs and

23 for the possession of illegal ammunition

As LEAP officers also conducted 813 integrated operations.

“LEAP is not an island, and these successes are not achieved by them alone. They work closely with other City of Cape Town law enforcement agencies, SAPS, neighborhood watches and Community Police Forums (CPF)s,” said Allen.
