This morning HCW received a License Plate Recognition (LPR) alert from a vehicle of interest to SAPS.
The HCW controller quickly verified the alert and gave out the relevant information to our SAPS, responders and patrol teams.
Soon after receiving the information an alert HCW and other patrol officers spotted the vehicle acting in a suspicious manner. He called in the details to the community control room to verify. At this time another one of our vehicles joined him and assisted with the monitoring.
Control room informed SAPS who tasked our teams to continue monitoring until they arrived.
Soon after that SAPS arrived and took over the scene. The vehicle was found to be a cloned and stolen vehicle, and subsequently impounded. Well done to all who were involved.
Taking back our streets together – ALL of us in a responsible, integral and collective manner.
