Operation Zero Crime
The High Command of West Coast Region under the leadership of the Regional Police Commissioner, conducted a robust patrol at the Brufut and Madiana forest, amidst reports of criminal activities within and around the forest.
The patrols were equally expanded to the coastal beaches and criminal hideouts leading to the arrest of 56 suspects currently helping with investigations.
Majority of the suspects are non Gambians and as a result they are handed over to the Immigration Department for appropriate actions.
