The logical conclusion of unpoliced by-laws is more crime

This morning a man who we have reported to authorities many times tried to rob two ladies on Park Drive Mulbarton but was caught by the complainants friends, residents and CPF members. He has been handed over to Mondeor SAPS.

The individual who normally loiters and begs by the cars at the intersection of Bellaires Drive and True North Road Glenvista and which we recieve many complaints about as he is aggressive especially towards female residents, has been allowed to loiter at this intersection unpoliced by JMPD for months.

Every month we put this intersection on our list of areas to recieve police and JMPD attention. Mondeor SAPS visit the area regularly and have profiled some of the loiterers. I am yet to see JMPD enforce the by-laws at this intersection and remove and take action against loiterers.

Like most criminals, the longer they are allowed to go unchecked the more confident they become. It's not surprising he is trying his hand at street robberies and who knows what else.

We deserve better policing from JMPD.

Well done to the complainant, resident and MB19 and all other call signs that assisted.

Be Safe

Please take Urgent note of the following

MEDIA STATEMENT ISSUED BY THE SOUTH AFRICAN POLICE SERVICE

To: All Media

Continuous unconfirmed social media postings a growing concern
Pretoria: 7 September 2018 - The South African Police Service has noted with great concern the recent spike in video clips on various social media platforms which in recent times have depicted cases of child kidnappings and abduction. The police have, since these postings started going viral, been trying to confirm if those depictions did or did not occur in any part of South Africa.
To this day, there is no evidence that suggests firstly, that these incidents happened in South Africa and secondly, that these incidents are actually legitimate. By now, besides reporting this to the police, one would have expected at least a family would have come forward to publicly confirm at least one of those videos to be legitimate. Secondly the police will never know that these incidents really happened if they are not officially reported. Therefore the only reasonable conclusion we can draw from this is that these videos are hoaxes.
Some of these videos might even be re-enactments as they are conveniently taken in a way that neither the location nor any other can be ascertained. We are appealing to social media users to act responsibly and verify information before posting sharing, as such postings do nothing more than cause unnecessary panic and paranoia among our communities.
Social media, when utilized responsibly, is an important communication platform that assists the police in combatting crime and arresting criminals. The South African Police Service assures the community that continuous awareness and educational talks on the safety of our children are done at various institutions including schools. While the recent social media postings remain unconfirmed, it is a reality that children do go missing. Therefore, parents and guardians are urged to exercise vigilance at all times.
An urgent appeal is made to people in instances where they suspect a crime may have been committed or anything suspicious has occurred to contact the police first to verify such information. In cases where children are involved, the Family Violence Child Protection and Sexual Offences Unit (FCS) may be contacted as well as the sector manager of a particular area. Discuss your concerns and let us together make informed decisions before posting on social media. Members of the community may call the police’s Crime Stop number, 08600 10111 and all information received will be treated with the strictest confidentiality.

Enquiries: Brigadier Vishnu Naidoo - 082 567 4153
Colonel Brenda Muridili - 071 686 9425
