The vehicles are very expensive assets and they are there to help provide services to the people.

Police strongly appeals to those communities and the general public, especially those identified communities to stop targeting police officers and vehicles.

“This is unprofessional behaviour toward police officers whilst performing their official duties,” said Pogeava.
