“Squeezing the space for criminals through an offensive approach” – Minister of Police, Minister Bheki Cele

Speaker notes by the Minister of Police, Minister Bheki Cele on the stabilization approach on the crime in South Africa.

Good morning and thank you for this opportunity.

During the recent past, South Africa has been plagued with serious and violent crimes, particularly aggravated robberies which has instilled fear in our innocent, vulnerable and law-abiding citizens of our country.

On this backdrop I have directed the SAPS Top Management to adopt and extraordinary operational approach to stabilize this crime wave which must be followed by a normalization approach.

Therefore, in our efforts to stamping the authority of the State, we will be introducing the execution of a high density stabilization intervention going forward.

This will entail the migration of resources from a strategic framework level to an operational framework level. This means that in provinces such as Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal and Western Cape, which provinces are most affected by this crime wave, we will be boosted by the deployment Lieutenant Generals. We will also be mobilizing all Police Act (functional) members that are ordinarily tasked with administration duties to augment the visibility of police officers, particularly in identified hotspot areas in all provinces.

Our intention is to combat crimes, among others, cash-in-transit heists, car hi-jacking, murders, house robberies, gang violence and related crimes, taxi violence and related crimes.

We will also be dedicating teams to track and arrest wanted suspects as part of our Organised Crime Threat Analysis (OCTA) approach.

In order to ensure a sustainable stabilization of crime, we realized that we would also need to ensure a downward management of “red dockets” (cold cases). In this, dedicated detectives will be working around the clock to gather information and evidence to identify those responsible for committing serious and violent crimes.

This will be a 24 hour multi-disciplinary activation plan dubbed “Squeezing the space for criminals through an offensive approach”.

The South African Police Service remains committed to ensuring that people in South Africa are and feel safe as outlined in Outcome 3 of the National Development Plan 2030. Not only do we want to ensure that people are and feel safe but we also want to ensure an environment conducive for and effective and efficient Grand Economic Strategy of the country. If the economy of our country flourishes then we can expect that crime will drop. If crime persists, the economy is not likely to flourish.

Moving forward, we will ensure high density visibility of uniformed police officers on foot and vehicles, supported by the SAPS air wing, continuous cordon and search operations, continuous roadblocks and relentless search for wanted suspects.

As part of the community mobilization, I call on all South Africans to be our eyes and ears by providing information on criminal activities preferable before they happen. Information can be provided to the local police station or to our Crime Stop number 086 00 10111. I also want to make a clarion call our SAPS members to work closely with the members of the community if we want to realise the desired support from all sectors of society.

I thank you

High speed chase ends in arrests of wanted suspects. 

Vision Tactical security guards noticed noticed suspicious activity early on Thursday morning at a site in crown mines. They immediately called for backup. As the tactical response arrived the suspects attempted to flee and fired shots in traffic. 

Vision Tactical gave chase towards the small bridge heading into Ormonde. One suspect ran into the bush and was apprehended. The chase continued and the suspects pushed a response vehicle into a taxi while continuing to fire at Vision Tactical and JMPD.

The other suspect was apprehended higher up on Xavier. Firearms and the vehicle was stolen. Suspects were handed over to SAPS

10 Tips when looking at vehicle tracking

Considering the time you spend in your car and that your car is one of the biggest assets, if not the biggest, that you own, you can never implement enough security measures to ensure its safety. In a country where cars are not only stolen frequently, but smuggled over the border or stripped down in a matter of minutes, a tracking system is arguably one of the best safety precautions to have installed.

For those of us who haven’t made the smart choice yet, here is a list of the top ten things to look out for before investing in a tracking system.

  1. Is the tracking company partnered with the SAPS?
    If the company is partnered with the South African Police Service, the police themselves will be involved in the tracking process should your vehicle ever be stolen. The company will enlist the help of the SAPS network of over 1 400 vehicles and 50 aircraft, often leading to swifter arrests and faster recovery of the vehicle in question.
  2. Is the tracking device accepted by car insurers?
    If the device is accepted by insurance companies, chances are that you will be able to reduce the cost of your monthly car insurance premiums as a result.
  3. Does the company have a reputable ‘track’ record?
    What percentage of stolen vehicles has the company managed to recover over the years? This percentage will be a good indication of whether the particular tracking device is a trustworthy one or not.
  4. Does the company offer you a variety of package options?
    Obviously, the more variety that there is, the easier it will be to choose a tracking device that best suits your needs and your budget.
  5. What tracking options do you have?
    If you opt for a slightly more advanced package, are you given the option to track your vehicle yourself using your smartphone, tablet or computer? This is a great benefit to have, especially if you are prone to forgetting where you parked your car!
  6. What extras does the tracking company offer you?
    Think vehicle monitoring, roadside assistance, zone management etc. While you may have to pay a little bit extra each month in order to make use of these add ons, some of them are incredibly convenient to have.
  7. Does the system come with an ‘Assist’ or ‘Panic’ button?
    Make sure that it does. This will make it possible for you to unnoticeably alert your tracking system provider if you’re in the process of being hijacked. It’ll also save you a phone call if you need roadside assistance.
  8. Is the tracking device maintenance-free?
    The best tracking devices either come with a warranty or are 100% maintenance-free. It is also wise to ensure that the device comes equipped with its own independent backup battery.
  9. How accurate is the tracking device?
    Ultimately, the more accurate the device, the easier it will be to trace and recover your vehicle. The best tracking systems are able to track your vehicle within five metres of its exact location.
  10. Are you getting value for money?
    To determine this, you’ll have to shop around, which is always a good idea. Make sure that you aren’t paying for something that another reliable provider will give you for free.

As you can see, it is incredibly important to do your research before taking the plunge and choosing a vehicle tracking system. After all, this little piece of technology is going to be responsible for protecting your most prized possession.

Remember, by having a tracking device installed, not only will it provide you with peace of mind, but it might also result in cheaper car insurance premiums.
