MINISTER KGATHI URGES MOLAPOWABOJANG RESIDENTS TO PARTICIPATE IN CRIME PREVENTION

 

The Minister of Defence, Justice and Security, Mr Shaw Kgathi called on members of the public to participate in crime prevention initiatives and report criminal activities taking place in their localities.

He made this call when handing over a Police Post and seven staff houses at Molapowabojang on Friday (14/06/2019). The Minister said participation by the general public proved to be fundamental in the reduction of crime.

Mr Kgathi was however concerned that the police still experienced withdrawal of cases due to lack of witness and pleaded with the community to come forward with information that could help curb crime.

He said the Stock Theft Act has been amended to stiffen punishment for stock theft. He compelled the police to come up with campaigns aimed at reducing stock theft.

He also said the BPS was committed to upholding the highest standards of discipline among its officers, saying in-discipline will not be compromised.

For his part, the Commissioner of Police Mr Keabetswe Makgophe said Molapowabojang Police Post was the 25th to be built out of 400 police posts expected to be constructed around the country. He added that the police post which comprises of Community Service Centre, Consultation room and two other offices was constructed at the tune of approximately P800 000.

He advised parents to observe their children in everything they do, so that they do not indulge in crime.
