Police making strides to bolster safety

After residents have raised concerns about crime in Reitz, Maj. Gen. Jan Tsotetsi, Bethlehem Cluster commander, has moved swiftly to bring about changes to policing in Reitz.

“We have heard the cries of residents and take their holding us accountable seriously. They must continue to exercise this right fully, correcting policing and joining hands with us,” Tsotsetsi said.

Steps have already been taken to bring stability at the helm, by appointing a station commander (SC). The post of SC has just been advertised and it is expected to be filled soon. Capt. Nocawe Booi is the SC in an acting capacity.

To address the shortage of personnel, a number of students will go to Reitz upon completion of their training later this year.

Plans are afoot to reduce the number of dockets and workload of the detectives, which is another concern that was raised.

Tsotetsi has undertaken to increase visibility and police operations in Reitz.

“We are proud to report that a dedicated team of skilled members of Public Order Policing has been deployed in the area. An immediate impact was felt, with a number of arrests executed during the operations. About 37 people were either jailed or issued with fines for crimes such as the possession of dangerous weapons (7), the possession of suspected stolen property (3), the possession of an unlicensed firearm (1), liquor-related crimes (14), the possession of and dealing in dagga (7), traffic-related contraventions (4) and assault (1).”

This is for the month of August.

“We encourage members of the community to join these efforts by reporting crime, rejecting stolen property and participating in community policing initiatives,” said Capt. Zweli Mohobeleli, spokes­person.
