As the COVID -19 infections numbers increase, not even police personnel are immune to its unpredictable nature, as police stations across the country have to temporarily close their doors due to positive cases being detected.
One such station is the Rietgat Police Station which provides its services to the Mabopane Train Station corridor and Soshanguve communities.
All communities serviced by Rietgat Police Station are advised that the station has been temporarily closed for decontamination after one of its members tested positive for COVID-19.
The Station’s Communication Officer Stephen Maluleka said “Rietgat Police Station will be serving all its clients from Phuthanong Satellite Station in Block HH during this decontamination period.The community is advised to call 10111 for all complaints and emergencies since the CSC number will be inaccessible.”
“The premises will be undergoing decontamination and the community will be informed when the station will resume its operations again. The Rietgat SAPS’ management apologises for any inconvenience that may arise from this closure,” said Maluleka.
