Uvongo crime stabilises in December

2017-01-19 06:01

CRIME in the Uvongo area appears to have “stabilised to some extent”.

A recent community policing meeting revealed that incidents have been below average for the past couple of months.

“Although we have experienced some housebreak incidents, the number of incidents during both November­ and December were more than 50% lower when compared to the 2015 figures­,” said chairman Ernest Booysen.

Booysen said the stabilisation in seasonal crime can be attributed to patrols conducted by SAPS and Blockwatch members and quick response to incidents reported.

“Very few daytime incidents were reported.

“Our light fingered friends mainly operate at night.

“A number of positive arrests had also ensured that the scum had been removed from our streets,” he said.

He thanked all parties involved for their effort.
