Police to launch anti-extortion campaign
The police is to launch a nationwide anti-extortion public education campaign early next month.
The campaign is to be launched on March 3 and is aimed at empowering victims to report the crime.
In a release from its Corporate Communications Unit, the police say the move will form part of its community-based strategy to suppress extortion and build public trust.
However, they say the strategy cannot be effective if citizens do not cooperate with the police. They say extortion is a means used by criminals to finance their illicit activities and therefore needs to be eradicated.
