TTPS: Crime in Enterprise down due to extra patrols

Since the re-introduction of joint patrols of police and army officials in the Enterprise district, there has been a significant decrease in criminal activities.

In March 2017, the joint exercises and higher focus was placed on the Enterprise community following a spike in homicides where over a matter of days 10 homicides had been recorded.

Since then, ASP Richard Smith was placed in operational command of this area, under the supervision of Snr Sup Balram, and continuous exercises, as well as a focus on community policing, has led to a reduction in criminal activities in this district.

Since March 2017, over 15,000 patrols were done and an estimated 900 persons have been arrested.

These same exercises have led to the seizure of 75 firearms as well as over 1000 rounds of assorted ammunition.

Two hand grenades were also seized.
