Crime Justice



Here's how many people the Police arrested during a joint operation this weekend.

With the large amount of crimes taking place in South Africa, it's easy to believe that our police are not doing their jobs. This leads to people losing faith in the police and no longer trusting them. However just because we don't see the police arresting criminals and solving crimes, doesn't mean that they don't do it. Here's how many people the South African Police Service arrested just this weekend and the implications of this for South Africa.

Various roleplayers in the Ethekwini district held a joint operation that started on Friday and ended late last night. The operation focused on offenders who had absconded their parole, drugs, illegal firearms, undocumented persons, counterfeit goods and illegal liquor outlets. This lead to a total of one hundred and fifteen suspects arrested.

Operations like this will be ongoing across the country to stop acts of criminality and remove perpetrators of crime from our streets. So what does this mean for South Africans.

The two most obvious implications is that with less criminals on the streets, less crimes will be comitted and that with more criminals being arrested, other criminals will be more afraid to commit crimes.

However we should also be looking at the implications of good police work. Because we don't hear about the good work police are doing, we often don't see them as making our Country safer but this is proof that they are and they should be praised for it.

While there are police officers out there who don't do the there job, the fact that criminals are being arrested shows us that there are also officers we can trust.

So in the future I urge South African citizens to show the police respect and obey what they say as they are just trying to make our Country a safer place.
