WINDHOEK, 06 DEC (NAMPA) - The Namibian Police Force (NamPol) has urged people not to leave their houses and properties unattended, in efforts to help minimise housebreaking and theft.
NamPol spokesperson, Chief Inspector Kauna Shikwambi told Nampa in an interview on Monday everyone who intends to travel should make security arrangements for their properties before leaving because thieves take advantage of their absence during the festive season.
“Safety of oneself and valuables should be considered at all times before going on holiday,” said Shikwambi.
People should also inform police officers manning the nearest police station in their residential areas of their absence from their homes, so that routine police patrols can be conducted in these areas.
Shikwambi also called on motorists to exercise patience on the national roads and drive responsibly at all times to avoid accidents.
“I am humbly requesting all of you to adhere to all traffic rules and regulations in order for Namibia to have a peaceful and accident-free festive season,” she said.
