The national police minister visited Hanover Park last Friday.

According to a statement by Captain Lance Goliath of Philippi Police Station, Fikile Mbalula interacted with various police officers on the ground, thanking and motivating them in performing their duties.

He also visited road checkpoints held throughout the area, interacting with several members of the public and taking in their concerns on crime in the gang-rivalled community.

Mbalula was accompanied by provincial commissioner Lieutenant Khombinkosi Jula, Mitchell’s Plain deputy cluster commander Brigadier Mmagauta Letsoalo and acting station commander Lieutenant-Colonel Dawood Laing.

Under the command of Letsoalo, Philippi policing precinct held several successful crime prevention operations on the day.

Officers stopped and searched 252 vehicles and issued 32 fines to the value of R45 500 to drivers.

Five people wanted for various crimes were found and arrested on various charges, such as possession of drugs and contempt of court.

Known drug outlets and illegal liquor outlets were also searched and former prisoners out on parole were also addressed.

Goliath says police continue clamping down on crime and will maintain their zero-tolerance approach to combating and investigating crime.

He urges the community to get involved in the reward system. This system allows any adult to become proactively involved in the prevention of crime. Crime and criminals can be reported and a reward could be received by the reporter.

V Anyone with information on crime can call the police at Crime Stop on 086 001 0111. All information will be treated as highly confidential.
