It’s among the strategies announced by National Police Commissioner General Khehla John Sitole in Bishops Lavis on Tuesday.

“With the modus operandi counter strategy, we intend to destroy modus operandi or prevent it before it’s executed and secondly we’re going to be profiling the criminals through the modus operandi.”

Sitole says the so-called turnaround vision, will also focus on attacks against its members.
