POLICE have vowed to intensify law enforcement during the Easter weekend  to root our criminal activities in Tongaat and surrounding areas. 
Police spokesperson in Tongaat Warrant Officer Manisha Maharaj-Marie said the police have adapted a zero tolerance approach.
“In keeping with the back to basic approach, the police will be conducting roadblocks, stop and searches, high visibility patrols and foot patrols. We urge ATM users to refrain from counting cash in public and asking for help from strangers. 

“We also urge girls to refrain from walking alone at night and going to liquor outlets because they can become victims of sexual offences.”

Maharaj-Marie said motorists found under the influence of alcohol will be charged.
“The drivers must ensure that they are not under the influence of alcohol. Those people going to the beach must ensure that children are safe. Refrain from being engrossed on cellphone and be observant of your surroundings.”

Ward councillor Dolly Munien warned residents to be on high alert during the Easter holidays and avoid being the victims of crime and violence.
“We have noticed that during holidays people tend to engage in illegal activities and that is something we condemn as community leaders. The residents must stay away from illegal activities.”
