OPUWO, 03 JAN (NAMPA) - The Namibian Police Force (NamPol) Deputy Regional Commander for the Kunene Region has thanked the community of Kunene for “behaving well” during this past festive season.
James Nderura told Nampa here on Thursday that no crimes were recorded by his force during the 2013/2014 festive season, including the New Year’s celebrations.
He noted that usually during these holidays crimes of housebreaking are always high, but no single case of housebreaking was reported between 20 December 2013 and 02 January 2014.
Nderura said motor-vehicle accidents are also usually high during that period, but not this time around.
“No cases of common assault, robbery or theft were recorded this time,” he said.
Nderura attributed the crime-free and peaceful period to the policing operations by NamPol and the Women and Men Network against crime.
He praised all Namibians for adhering to the different traffic laws, including laws against speeding and driving under the influence of alcohol, which most of the time lead to road accidents.
The regional commander added that NamPol would want to keep the momentum of a crime-free Kunene Region for the whole year.
