Jeffreys Bay Police would like to appeal to the community to lay charges when crime occurs.  An incident occurred during the week where a suspected house breaker was caught inside a house but the owner declined to lay charges as nothing had been stolen.

The Police need help to remove these criminals from the streets and we, the community must play our part as well.
