During the past week police in the Mitchell's Plain Cluster have clamped down on criminals in their policing precincts. High density patrols and visibility, as well as "stop and search" operations targeting people and houses in areas identified as high crime generating areas, were the order of the day. Deployments were enhanced at all stations within the cluster with the newly-trained constables who were deployed in various areas. They were also working on beaches and in malls. A total of 607 suspects were arrested during the past week for various crimes.
