“There are isolated instances in different parts of the city and what the department has been doing is conduct further stop and search methods for areas that are known for this type of activity. We will step up patrols, we are going to definitely be targeting persons involved with this type of lifestyle. Certain members of these gangs are definitely irate and irritated and we are always bracing for retaliatory shootings and the like. But, of course, to prevent them a hundred percent will be a bit difficult. But again the department will be very vigilant in trying to deal with this situation.”

Police have detained several persons, including well known gang members. Police are also recommending that if you are travelling, it is best to secure your premises over the holidays. Business houses are advised to be vigilant at all times.
