  1. Clap, clap, clap for the police who seems to be more focused on traffic violations instead of taking illegal guns of the street.

    We need to see these operations at nights.

  2. @Rude i can only agree with @HN you clearly didn’t give your comment much thought before commenting.

    Bravo to the RSLPF, now the law needs to be amended to cater for breathalyser’s, the lab is now certified.

    Rake in some much needed money in fines and save lifes.

  3. Most crimes would include a vehicle and having static and exercise during the night and day can reduce the rogue elements activity. Good observations can prevent crime by apprehending criminals on outstanding warrants, stop and search resulting in removal of illegal arms and ammunition and general appearance gives the law abiding citizens a sense of comfort. The broken window theory still makes sense to law enforcers!

  4. So wait! What were those cops doing all these years? Clearly they are able to get the job done now.
