National Police Commissioner General Khehla Sithole says new strategies are constantly being put in place to curb the surge in cash-in-transit heists and other crimes.
Sithole was responding to questions surrounding the arrest of now former Luthuli House employee and ANC member Errol Velile Present who has been implicated in a series cash-in-transit heists.
He has shared some of the plans he has implemented since his appointment in November last year, and explains how police have had to keep up with criminals who have somehow found a way to bypass intelligence.
Each time a new modus operandi comes to the fore, unless you are doing constant modus operandi analysis and research you might not pick up what is new but since I introduced the new turn around vision in the police we have now developed a culture of conducting sustainable modus operandi analysis on a daily basis.— General Khehla Sithole, National Police Commissioner
We are escalating it now to a modus operandi analysis centre that will be working on a daily basis.— General Khehla Sithole, National Police Commissioner
As we continue to police on a daily basis, criminals are studying our plans and find new ways of bypassing the system. You may gather the intelligence, but there must be an ongoing analysis to find out what is the new method they are bringing.— General Khehla Sithole, National Police Commissioner
