Johannesburg - KwaZulu-Natal police on Friday unveiled a specialised tracking team to find and arrest perpetrators of serious and violent crimes.
Colonel Jay Naicker said the team consisted of 17 SAPS members from KwaZulu-Natal, who had undergone training in surveillance, crime detection and tactical response.
They were to be outfitted with the best equipment available to carry out their mandate.
Naicker said the team was responsible for finding suspects involved in serious crimes such as murder, rape and aggravated robberies, including bank robberies and cash-in-transit heists.
