Police union POPCRU has expressed its concern about law enforcement officials who got involved in crime.

In recent weeks there have been several incidents in which police officers found themselves on the wrong side of the law.

A constable was arrested in Parow on Friday on various charges, including attempted rape.

POPCRU’s Benzi ka Soko said that it was inexcusable for officers to commit crime.

“We are very disturbed. No-one is above the law. Even police officers are supposed to be upholders of the law. If they commit offences, the full might of the law should take its course,” said ka Soko.
