LEANDRA- Local police members arrested 17 suspects for the possession of dagga and they closed 18 liquor outlets.
They also charged perpetrators.
"The police have a zero tolerance approach on illegal liquor outlets.
"These operations contribute to the decrease in the crime rate in our policing area, especially contact and property crimes," said W/O Pieter Naude.
Liquor license holders must also be ahead of their prescribed closing times, otherwise they will face prosecution by the Leandra Police.
Sgt Paul Liebenberg was recently appointed as the new sector manager of sector and sub sector three.
He will be managing the prescribed area.
"The Leandra polece will also be launching a farmers forum in the near future to address the issues farmers in the area might have." said W/O Naude.
