WINDHOEK, 14 NOV (NAMPA) – The Namibian Police Force (NamPol) has cautioned members of the public to take care of their property as the end of the year approaches.
“Personal and property safety can never be over-emphasised and as we are moving towards the end of the year, we want to reiterate on the importance of personal and property safety,” said a statement issued by NamPol on Tuesday.
The statement further said that the Namibian public and visitors need to prepare themselves and reduce every possibility of crime.
The statement justified the caution with records of nine robbery and theft cases reported between Friday and Monday alone, emphasising that criminals are seeking every opportunity to steal from and rob the public.
“The police are not always everywhere. Thus, let us prioritise and ensure our safety and that of our properties, at all times,” the statement read.
It further cautioned individuals and syndicates who are disloyal to their employers or companies and are busy conniving with criminals that they will be punished by the law.
“They are therefore warned to desist from being sell-outs, stealing from those who are feeding them. The long arm of the law will always catch up with them,” the statement added.
