Mzuzu, August 3, 2019: Mzuzu Police Station has experienced increased record in general crime rate from January to June this year as compared to the same period in 2018.

Speaking in an interview Thursday Mzuzu Police publicist Paul Tembo said in 2018, police recorded 740 cases while this year cases have gone up by seven.

Tembo said the increase is as a result of massive sensitisation of the public on crime reporting mechanism.

“People now have trust in their police other than before when they could take the law into their own hands. They used to deal with suspects themselves through mob justice.

“People are now aware of the importance of reporting cases to police when aggrieved,” Tembo said.

The publicist added that police visibility will be increased, vehicle patrols intensified and sensitisation of crime prevention tips to the general public will be scaled up.
