According to provincial police spokesperson Captain Frederick van Wyk, illegal drugs is one of the root causes of violent crime in our communities, and members attached to the West Coast District, Provincial Operational Command Centre, and Provincial Traffic are lauded for their efforts to remove drugs from the streets.
