Public’s Indifference To Criminality Worry Police

Police Officer Commanding Bulawayo Province, Commissioner Patton Mbangwa says Bulawayo residents are not doing enough to assist the police in fighting crime.

In an interview with State media on Monday, Commissioner Mbangwa said residents have developed a culture of indifference to crime and in some cases, justify criminality. He said:

Our plea is that many members of the public assist the police if we are to win this war against criminals.

It is not a secret that these criminals stay among us. They are our friends, they are our children, they are our buddies.

However, someone out there is very much aware that so and so did this or that, and they keep it to themselves.

The fight against crime becomes difficult if the information isn’t shared.

If members of the public could come forth with whatever information that they think, and let it be given to the police then the police will sieve and determine whether the information can be of any value.

Then we can satisfactorily say we are fighting crime with the community.

Commissioner Mbangwa urged residents to forsake the culture of indifference and provide the police with information that will assist them to curb crime. He said:

Some of these offences occur in the full glare of some of us, but we just say it has nothing to do with me.

But tomorrow we aren’t sure that it will directly impact you.

I also want to take this opportunity to thank those who are working so much with the police, who are giving us information.

Most of the information that we are getting is positive. But there are some who don’t want to, and crime keeps going up.

  1. Its ZRP’s indefference to their own bias on applying the law that is making people unwilling to provide information. Mr Commissioner be profession crime will be won.
