The officer commanding Mbare district made it clear that he was concerned by reports that some police officers in the district are continuing to smash windscreens and use spikes despite earlier directives ordering them to stop.

The Officer commanding police Mbare district made it clear that errant police officers who continue smashing windscreens and using spikes will face disciplinary action.

Below is part of the memorandum,

Date: 16 April 2021
SUBJECT: CONTINUOUS USE OF SPIKES AND SMASHING OF MOTOR VEHICLE WINDSCREENS BY MEMBERS

Repeated hereunder is Chief Staff Officer [Operations] memorandum number 676/21 dated 10 March 2021 with the above subject.

This Headquarters has noted with great concern continuous use of spikes and smashing of windscreens by members in violation of the laws of the country.

Despite several memoranda sent to districts to desist from such practice, it was observed that members are continuously using spikes with some going to the extent of smashing windscreens of motor vehicles in order to effect arrests. It should be noted that such practice is unlawful, unacceptable and not condoned by the organization.

This exposes the orgranization to avoidable litigations from affected members of the public. Disciplinary actions will be considered against any members who engage in such unlawful conduct.
