  1. More regular checks needed to be carried out without notice in various area, also some of the back roads as well, a network is well established to transmit info where police are conducting road checks so more collaborations need to take place on the law enforcement part. BRAVO, lets see if we have any incompetent magistrate now.

  2. Good. Conduct frisk and search at the north and south ends of Bruceville too. Scooter riders and other motor vehicle operators and see how many guns you all will get. I SHOULD KNOW what I’m talking about

  3. Nineteen vehicles searched and two found with weapons. This particular check yielded just over 10% discovery. That’s pretty high under any security condition. I would like to know the results of previous searches this year. Much of the reason for the proliferation of weapons was the lack of vehicle searches.
    For a long time there were hardly any vehicle searches conducted. No one was curious about what was transported. This was a disaster that was in the making. To curb crime, the police must control the road system. This is one of the cardinal rules of security

  4. some police sending messages to their friends letting them know where they having road blocks. Yes no one told me.i know it.
