The Police in Chitipa has urged business people to embrace Halaal system in order to control theft of animals. Speaking during the seminar, Mr. Benson Tajiri the Police station officer at Chitipa Boma said that Halaal Department standards of slaughtering animals in markets is a robust system that will help to curb theft of animals.
