Dispatcher Files

On my afternoon shift I received a call from a TrackBox member to say that he had heard numerous gunshots near his farm in Ashburton, which he believed may have been a poaching incident in progress.

I immediately made contact with SAPS Alexandra, giving them the details and contact number of the complainant. After a short while the member called back to say that SAPS had contacted him and asked him to be on the lookout for the poachers and if possible to note how many poachers and dogs were involved 

Another landowner in the area also called in to report that he had also heard the shots earlier but that the poachers had left the area. 

Poaching is a huge problem in the rural and peri-urban areas of South Africa, and we receive reports almost on a daily basis.

If you have not already done so, download the TrackBox app (Android or iPhone) and report such incidents using the “Report” button which can be found on the top left of the main dashboard of the app. 

We and our operational partners (SAPS, security companies, neighbourhood watches, etc.) do everything we can to apprehend poachers and are grateful to members who call in such incidents.Dispatcher:
