PORT Shepstone SAPS held a crime awareness campaign at the CBD taxi rank last Thursday.

The campaign was part of the build-up to the KZN Polmusca competition, which will took place on Saturday at the Ugu Sports and Leisure Centre­.

Prior to the event, Port Shepstone police conducted an operation in the CBD and beachfront, during which several people were arrested for counterfeit­ goods, drugs, dangerous weapons and loitering for the purpose of prostitution.

Different units took part in the blitz operation.

Following the operation, the provincial SAPS Dance Band from Durban entertained the community at the taxi rank.

“We want to engage the public through music to take a stand against crime, especially the selling and distributing of drugs in our communities,” said police spokesperson Lieutenant­-Colonel Zandra Wiid.

Port Shepstone Community Policing Forum deputy chairperson, Carole Potter, addressed the public about this issue and Constable Khanyisani Cele from Public Order Policing Port Shepstone­, encouraged them to report crime and stand united against the abuse of drugs. - Supplied.
