Police to restore order in Boksburg North

Boksburg North SAPS is keen to heed the calls of the residents in its area.

Residents of Boksburg North raised concerns about illegal immigrants occupying properties and the increase in hawkers in the area during an imbizo initiated by the Boksburg North SAPS and Boksburg North CPF Sector Four on August 20.

One resident, Mark Gilpin, said the police reaction time was also a problem.

“Police are turning a blind eye to the criminal activities here. We know that police are short staffed and working with limited resources but that has to change,” he said.

Station commander of Boksburg North SAPS Colonel Mack Mngomezulu assured the residents of Boksburg North they will do everything in their power to fight crime and change their approach to it.

“Everything that we didn’t do before we will start doing today. We promise that we will heed to your calls as the residents of the area,” said Mngomezulu.

“Our main priority is to restore order and ensure the residents are living in a safe environment that is crime free.

‘We have heard the issues you have raised today and it is in our best interest to listen to them, and decisively change what is not good about us as the police. We are here to serve you as the residents of the area.”
