Minister Plato to Host Provincial PNP Public Meeting in Vredendal

5 September 2014

Tomorrow, Saturday 6 September 2014, Western Cape Minister of Community Safety, Dan Plato, will host the Provincial Policing Needs and Priorities (PNP) consultation process for the Vredendal police cluster.

The five month consultation process across the province aims to gather information from communities on their specific policing needs and priorities to be included in the PNP report which will be submitted to the National Minister of Police for his consideration, when determining where different policing resources are needed.

During these meetings, communities have the opportunity to meet the Minister of Community Safety, meet their Community Policing Forum (CPF) and Cluster CPF Chairpersons, engage with their respective Neighbourhood Watch structures, South African Police Services (SAPS) station commanders as well as identify, discuss and confirm the specific needs and priorities facing their communities.

Through the PNP, the Western Cape Government is committed to working Better Together to increase the safety of all our communities.

There will be an opportunity for photographs and interviews.

Note: All media are invited to attend.

The Vredendal cluster PNP meeting will give the communities of Vredendal, Citrusdal, Clanwilliam, Doringbaai, Elandsbaai, Graafwater, Klawer, Lambertsbaai, Lutzville, Nuwerus and Van Rhynsdorp the opportunity to use the consultation process and have their say on their safety concerns.
