Attacks on police formations have not ceased. They are growing and it is worrying.The  Police Community Relations Committee says the attacks are an invitation to anarchy.

Vehicle inspection officers are known to stand guard on road turns to demand vehicle papers. One was knocked down by a truck and is fighting for his life.
