South African police have increased their deployments and operations to combat crime and apprehend wanted criminals, according to national police commissioner Fannie Masemola.
“Throughout the weekend, all provinces are conducting simultaneous blitz operations with high visibility and combat operations.”
“These include cordon and search operations, as well as intelligence-driven, multi-disciplinary, disruptive operations,” the South African Police Service commissioner said at a press conference in Pretoria.
According to Masemola, 22,320 suspects were detained for various criminal charges in July, and 1,173 illegal firearms were confiscated across the country.
The briefing came after eight women were raped while filming a video in Krugersdorp, Gauteng province, last Thursday. Masemola stated that the police will go to any length to bring the perpetrators to justice.
