PoliceMinister Fikile Mbalula has announced in parliament that he is redeploying the Tactical Response Team (TRT) in townships to combat the ever rising crime rates. This week newspapers reported that unions such as POPCRU supports the minister’s decisions while other unions like the South African Police Union (SAPU) resisted against the redeployment of the unit. SAPU is of the opinion that the TRT is not a suitable unit to deal with crimes such as domestic violence. Morning Live has invited the Minister of Police to the interview this morning but was informed that due to other commitments in Limpopo he could not make it.
