King William's Town Cluster Commander Brigadier Luntu Ngubelanga said Police are committed in fighting crime and in full force in tracking down the perpetrators of crime. We will keep on checking the compliance on taverns that are operating in our policing areas. There will be more visibility in our rural areas as there will be more social family events where liquor is used, he added.
