FAKE: Hillbrow police station robbed of their pistols, food and seized stolen goods while they were sleeping

Fraud Alert:

The ‘news’ that police in Hillbrow were robbed of their pistols and stolen goods while they were sleeping has been received with dismay by the Gauteng South African Police Service management. The statement published on social networks is fake news that has been making the rounds. No pistols or stolen goods have been stolen from the police station while police officers were sleeping.

Police stations, especially at the client service centres, are always manned by members to attend to complaints. Sleeping on duty by members of the SAPS is not an acceptable conduct and it is punishable in terms of the South African Police Regulations. Strict supervision and control are measures that are taken to ensure that members always provide services with integrity and in a professional manner.
