More needs to be done

The three most reported crimes in the nation’s capital are stolen motor vehicles, different robberies as well as sexual offenses.

According to the NCD police boss, Perou N’Dranou ironically crimes like these three are happening within the community hence most times perpetrators are known to the community.

He urged the parents and guardians of children to be more vigilant.

Last week there were 12 incidents of sexual crimes and N’Dranou says that the trend has been continuing to increase since last year given the lack of action by parents or the community.

“We need to do more to prevent that. Many times sexual crimes offenses are created by people that know the victims.

“I urge residents to continue to be vigilant in preventing such crimes. It is preventable but we are not taking that seriously,” the Met Supt warns.
