Deputy Provincial Commissioner: Asset Management-Major General Thembeka Dyantyi
said, “Whenever we hand out vehicles, we consider a lot of things and want to ensure they
are taken to where they are needed most, service-delivery.”
She appealed to members of the police force to use these resources for official use only. She
requested members of the public to report abuse of these vehicles. “Whenever you suspect
that police are not using our vehicles for official duty and crime fighting activities, but personal and private use, report to us. Take a picture of the vehicle and its registration
numbers so that we can investigate and take appropriate disciplinary action,” she ended.
