ACORNHOEK - Parts of local police station were damaged yesterday when the building caught fire at about 22h20. The detective offices and the community service centre sustained considerable damage in the incident. The cause of the fire is currently unknown. The SAPS Forensic Department has, however, launched an investigation into the incident. A team of experts will also conduct a comprehensive assessment of the extent of the damage as to determine if the building is safe to enter.

The police would like to assure community members that service delivery has not been interrupted.

The Provincial Commissioner for the Police, Lt Gen Mondli Zuma, has facilitated the establishment of a temporary community service center. As an interim measure, awaiting trial prisoners have been transferred to other police stations for their own safety, even though the holding cells had not been affected by the blaze.
