‘Road Policing’ yields 221 offenders in first six months

Police said on Saturday their new ‘road policing’ policy, which started at the beginning of the year had yielded 221 cases in the first six months.

The stop-and-check policy has netted 14 illegal immigrants, 37 drugs seizures, 18 cases of illegal possession of weapons, four cases of stolen goods, 10 stolen cars or unlawful possession of a vehicle, 13 wanted or missing persons and four case of possession of burglary tools, plus another 121 offences, they said.

“Road Policing is a modern, international policing method, which effectively contributes to the prevention of road traffic collisions and generally in tackling crime,” an announcement from the police said.  “This method is based on the fact that persons who commit any kind of crime are likely to be drivers.”
