The resolve has come about due to the discovery by the police that crimes where homes and property are intruded into, have become common in the city.

The conference also noted that youth aged between 18 and 35 years have become vulnerable to road accidents hence the need to engage them in finding solutions to the problem.

Some of the causes of the vulnerability of the youth is excessive alcohol intake, overspeeding and carefree driving among many others. The police said they will intensify public education on road safety.

The conference further expressed concern at the frequency of the incidents of escaping from lawful custody and the commanders resolved to urge operatives to handcuff suspects at all times.

Addressing a press conference, Police Commissioner Thebeyame Tsimako said that despite

economic improvement in Zimbabwe, there are still many illegal immigrants from that country, some of whom are, unfortunately engaged in criminal activities.

He expressed concern at the increasing reports of police torture and assault, saying that all of these reports are investigated and proper action taken against perpetrators.

Tsimako said they do not condone any unbecoming behaviour by the police and cautioned that those who take the law into their hands will be disciplined.

Commenting on other issues, the commissioner said he was satisfied with the cooperation they have with the Directorate of Intelligence and Security (DIS) and other security organs.  The police assured the nation that they are ready to face any challenges that will come with the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
