Shembeni, Mr HA to ask the Minister of Police
What (a) did his review of the deployment of the SA National Defence Force members to help fight crime in Cape Town find and (b) lessons have the SA Police Service learnt from this experience about fighting crime? NW2267E
During Operation Lockdown, a multidisciplinary approach between the South African Police Service (SAPS) and the South African National Defence Force (SANDF), in a supportive role, to fight crime in identified hotspot policing precincts, within the Cape Town metropole, led to a significant reduction in contact crimes.
A multidisciplinary strategy, resulting in coordinated planning, optimal utilisation of resources, focused execution and joint review and assessment of operations, is critical to the enhancement of our crime combating efforts.
