THE Tweeling and Arlington police have new station commanders. Capt. Dawid Booysen was appointed in Tweeling and Capt. Daniel Moeti in Arlington.

Booysen is an experienced police officer who ascended the ranks over a career spanning almost three decades. He returned to his home town after plying his trade in Vrede, Bethlehem and recently Reitz.

These stations spent the most time doing visible policing.

Booysen, who has committed to exerting his presence immediately, has been warmly received by the community.

“The community is prepared to help us fight crime, which is an excellent start.

“House-breaking and stock theft are prevalent crimes in Mafahlaneng.

“In the week that I have been here, all efforts have been geared towards minimi-sing opportunities for criminals. The work of our detectives is commendable.

“I am personally going to make sure that police officers serve the community as expected. Discipline and service excellence shall be maintained,” Booysen promised.

Moeti’s experience is solid. The better part of his 24 years’ service was spent in Arlington. A father himself, he is most passionate about helping the youth of Leratswana to lead a crime-free life.

His first stop has been to deal with assaults.

“Our awareness campaigns are bearing fruit. Assaults are on the decline. This is also thanks to the positive response by members of the community.”

The Bethlehem cluster commander, Maj. Gen. Jan Tsotetsi, is happy that the appointment of these officers will bring much needed stability.
