The city’s metro police will be inspecting taverns across the metro together with liquor board representatives.
The aim is to assess compliance with liquor laws while investigating possible links to crime in the areas, metro police chief Yolande Faro said.
Faro was speaking at a safety and security portfolio committee meeting on Tuesday.
She was presenting the status of ongoing metro police operations.
Since the beginning of the year, the city has had several tavern inspections, with non-compliant taverns issued with fines starting at about R2,500.
