SAPS Soshanguve visited Soshanguve community radio yesterday, 16 March 2022, to have a discussion and bring awareness to the listeners about the crime happening recently in their policing area.

Crimes such as car hijackings, house robberies, business robberies, gender based violence related crimes, murders and other related crimes have been problematic in the area, with more and more reports coming in the police station in the past two weeks.

The SAPS has urged the community of Soshanguve to take precautionary measures to eliminate crime happening within the policing area and practice safety measures to prevent and protect themselves from being victims to such crimes.

“You must always lock your doors and gates to reduce the risk of easy access to residential premises, in the instance of business premises, intensify security and avoid keeping large sums of money in the business premises.

“Motorists should avoid shopping, parking or travelling to isolated areas and public transport drivers and commuters encouraged to ensure that it is safe to transport or board into a taxi or any other form of transport before taking a trip,” said Constable Zondi.

Anyone with any information pertaining crime within the Soshanguve policing area can contact the SAPS Soshanguve station commander, Brigadier Michelle-Ann Toohey on 082 828 6049 and the client service center on 071 675 6286.
