Acting National Police Commissioner, Lieutenant-General Khomotso Phahlane, says South Africa is experiencing a downward trend in crime.
Speaking on Morning Live, Phahlane says South Africa has a problem when it comes to contact crime.
“It is where murders are aggravating, robberies, hijackings and so on, but the overall picture is not looking bad. We realised a decrease in the four major categories of crime,” says Phahlane.
On Sunday, Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa addressed the South African Police Services (SAPS) Annual Commemoration Day at the Union Buildings, in Pretoria.
The day is in remembrance of members of the Police Services who lost their lives in the line of duty.
The event honoured those members died between April 1, 2015 and March 31, 2016.[Source: SABC]
