: Following the recent spate of unrest and tensions within the community of Rosettenville, and the subsequent displeasure with the Police of Moffatview as expressed by the communities in and around the area, the Gauteng Provincial Police Commissioner has, as an interim measure, launched an anti-corruption hotline through which members of the public are able to report directly, any corrupt activities by the police to the Provincial Commissioner.

Lieutenant General Deliwe de Lange and management of police and law enforcement agencies in the Province, have also put in place plans to tackle crime not only in Rosettenville but throughout the Province.

The integrated effort of the police and law enforcement agencies in Gauteng is set to improve on work already done in the area since February 2016 to date. Over 400 suspects were arrested for drug-related crimes, and a number of brothels were raided and closed down.

De Lange is committed to restoring trust and confidence in the police in Gauteng and therefore encourages members of the public to use the 24-hour anti-corruption hotline 082 820 6467 to report on police corruption and complacency in Gauteng. The Provincial Commissioner is also committed to rooting out corrupt elements and will therefore address these complaints head-on.

The 10111 number must still be used for emergencies and to report crime in general.
