10 September 2014

Tomorrow, Thursday 11 September 2014, Western Cape Minister of Community Safety, Dan Plato, will host the Provincial Policing Needs and Priorities (PNP) consultation process for the communities of Bishop Lavis, Elsies River and Langa.

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.

Tomorrow’s meeting will be the 10th public engagement as part of the Department of Community Safety’s five month consultation process across the province which aims to gather information from communities on their specific policing needs and priorities. The inputs from all 25 meetings to be held in the province will be included in the PNP report to be submitted to the National Minister of Police for his consideration when determining where different policing resources are needed.

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.
