Armed Robberies: Police "On Top Of The Situation"

Armed Robberies: Police

The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) says it is well-equipped to deal with rising armed robbery cases across the country.

In an interview with State media, ZRP national spokesperson, Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi, said the force received all-terrain vehicles and fuel for the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) Homicide Section. He said:

We are not facing any challenges in fighting armed robberies. In fact, we are on top of the situation.

As you are aware, we were given brand new all-terrain vehicles for the CID Homicide Section and also a substantial amount of fuel for operations.

We are well equipped to fight armed robberies. The police are ready to stamp out armed robberies.

Asst Comm Nyathi implored members of the public and business people to follow safety measures that are being given by the police. He said:

We have conclusively established that some people are followed from work by the armed robbers because they will be having inside information.

We have also established that guards from security companies are conniving with criminals or stage-managing armed robbery cases.

These are the issues which we feel the community, particularly the business sector, should co-operate with the police to curb the armed robbery cases which we are currently recording.

People should not keep large sums of money in their houses because they become targets.

Recently, two rogue soldiers shot dead a man in Hatcliff, Harare and seriously injured his relative during a US$40 000 robbery incident.

YES, POLICE IS ON TOP OF THE SITUATION. WHAT THEY MEAN
IS THAT THEY HAVE ACCOUNTED OR ARRESTED ACCUSED PERSONS FOR ALMOST EVERY REPORT OF ARMED ROBBERY THAT HAS BEEN REPORTED.

IT IS TRUE THAT CRIMINALS ARE ALWAYS AHEAD OF ALL SECURITY AGENTS. SECURITY AGENTS ALWAYS DISCOVER THAT CRIMINALS HAVE INTRODUCED ANOTHER METHOD OF STEALING AFTER CRIMINALS HAVE COMMITTED A CRIME.

IF POLICE ARREST THESE CRIMINALS DESPITE THAT POLICE ARE FOLLOWING BEHIND, THEN THE TERMINOLOGY USED IS "POLICE ARE ON TOP OF THE SITUATION".

THE WAY PEOPLE WERE CREATED AND PLACED IN SOCIETY IS THAT CRIMINALS COMMIT CRIMES AND POLICE WILL FOLLOW THEN ARREST THE ACCUSED. POLICE D NOT ARREST ANYONE WHERE A CRIME HAS NOT BEEN COMMITTED. THEREFORE POLICE WILL ALWAYS BE BEHIND CRIMINALS. POLICE CAN NOT ARREST WHERE A CRIME HAS NOT BEEN COMMITTED.

POLICE SHALL ALWAYS LAG BEHIND CRIMINALS, BUT WHEN THEY ARREST THEM, THEN THEY ARE ON TOP OF THE SITUATION.

Soldiers and police officers shld be taught other survival skill like carpentry, building, welding etc or attain such courses as mechanics, electronics as these wld help them when their employment is terminated. Chimwe chii chingaitwa nemunhu akapinda basa nekumhanya chete kana abuda basa?

Zrp is not on top of the situation of robbers ...rather they..the police.. are a step behind the robbers..only when the police is a step ahead of the robberies...creating an environment difficult..if not impossible, for the robberies to take place ..then and only then will we take note that zrp are a step ahead and on top of the situation

What has caused the spikes in armed robberies. This is one of the issues to make clear before we celebrate all terrain vehicles. Tomboona kunowira tsvimbo nedohwe.
