Johannesburg - North West premier Thandi Modise has applauded police following the arrest of six policemen for alleged involvement in business robberies.

“The arrest of six North West policemen for allegations of involvement in business robberies around Rustenburg should restore the confidence of the public...” she said in a statement.

“The involvement of police in crime undermines the confidence that the public has in law enforcement, hence we commend intensified efforts to uproot elements within the police service involved in crime.”

Modise said the arrest of the four Tlhabane detectives and two crime intelligence officers, who appeared in the Rustenburg Magistrate's Court on Monday after their arrest in two unrelated cases, highlighted the success of the festive season operation duty calls.

The six remained in police custody pending their next court appearance for a formal bail application. - Sapa
