The Southern Division continues to lead the nine policing districts in the number of firearms seized with 163 illegal weapons found this year.

This number is eight more than the number of firearms seized for the same period last year.

The division, which is led by Snr Sup Mohammed, is continuing its anti-crime initiatives to reduce reports of serious crime in the district.

These initiatives have resulted in the detention of suspects mere minutes after robberies were reported in the district this week.

As a result, Mohammed, as well as other officers of the Southern Division, are calling on the public to continue to work with the police service, noting that it was only through this continued collaboration could crime be combatted in this country.

More on this as it becomes available.
