Brigadier Masiya is concerned about the high number of hijacking and robberies in the policing area of Vosman. He said he was proud of the work by the pervious station commander and members of the SAPS in Vosman for the past five months the station has been doing well in solving crime.

“We need the support of the community to meet challenges. We need to walk hand in hand in an effort to solve crime. Liquor outlets are a concern as well. They need to keep to their operating times and follow the act, and we will enforce compliance if they do not keep to the law. Together with the owners we need to ensure that all is safe at liquor outlets, we need to work something together.”

The brigadier is a firm believer that a partnership with the community is the driving force to combat crime.

“We need to do the basic, prevent crime, do proper investigations and support community policing forums (CPF) and invite community members to work hand in hand with the police,” concluded Brigadier Masiya.
