(1) The latest date, on which an audit was done of the actual number of vehicles, which are allocated for the exclusive use of the Sedgefield Satellite Police Station, was on 1 June 2018.
(2) Yes, the information, which was provided by the South African Police Service (SAPS), is accurate. The verification of the number of vehicles revealed that there were four vehicles, which were utilised on a rotational basis, due to the age and mechanical status of the vehicles at the time. These vehicles have now been replaced with two new vehicles, which are utilised for the Sedgefield Satellite Police Station.
