Hot spots identified and safety plans in place says top cop

2 August 2016 6:01 PM

Acting national police commissioner says police identified 650 high risk areas and safety and security of voters is top priority.

There are some 650 'high-risk' areas that police will be focusing on during tomorrow's municipal elections.

Acting national police commissioner, Kgomotso Phahlane says identifying hot spots is driven by intelligence reports. The reports are informed by assessment made weighing up threat levels in a particular area. It is on that basis that necessary deployments are made.

Phahlane says he is happy with the police deployment and levels of calm in Vuwani, one of the areas regarded as high risk.

I'm able to sleep peacefully knowing that its all systems go. Our plans are in place, and we are in that space where we are operationalising our plans and thus far it is going well.

I spent the whole day in Vuwani, as the police we have saturated that space.
