Hot spots identified and safety plans in place says top cop
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.
