Police warn residents this Easter

Police will be out and about during the Easter period in the nation’s capital and normal operations of road blocks and vehicle checks will be conducted to ensure safety and security.

Superintendent for Operations, Michael Tilae reiterated this message warning residents and vehicle owners to be security conscious and take on the safe driving concept to avoid causing silly incidents during the long Easter weekend.

Tilae said although they are expecting a quiet Easter break for all public servants in the city, police personnel will be on high alert for deterrence if need be.

The Supt Ops also warned the travelling public especially those travelling to and from the highway province to move about with care this will minimise unnecessary accidents that occur along the highway resulting in loss of lives and injuries.

“Police will not be anywhere and everywhere to know what is happening.”

He said the crime level in the city is at a manageable level with one or two reported cases of motor vehicle theft every day.

“We managed to contain to a certain level and that has been continuing for the last two weeks. However, as more people are coming into the city, we expect that more people will become subject to this illegal act.”

He appealed to residents to enjoy at the comfort of their homes to avoid unnecessary illegal offences if caught by police who will be on patrol during Easter.
