Minister Plato to Host Final Policing Needs Consultation Meeting in Gugulethu

9 December 2014

Today, 9 December 2014, Western Cape Minister of Community Safety, Dan Plato, will conclude the Provincial Policing Needs and Priorities (PNP) consultation process when he hosts the final meeting for the Nyanga police cluster in Gugulethu.

During this meeting, the suburbs of Athlone, Gugulethu, Landsdowne, Manenberg, Nyanga, Philippi and Philippi East will have the opportunity to identify, discuss and confirm the specific needs and priorities facing their communities. They will also have an opportunity to engage the Minister of Community Safety, Community Policing Forum (CPF) and Cluster CPF Chairpersons, their respective Neighbourhood Watch structures, and South African Police Services (SAPS) station commanders.

This meeting will be the last public engagement opportunity as part of the Department of Community Safety’s five month consultation process across the province to gather information from communities on their specific policing needs and priorities.

It is important that all communities use the consultation process as an opportunity to have their say on their safety concerns.

The inputs from all 25 meetings held in the province will be complied into the PNP report to be submitted to the National Minister of Police for his consideration when determining where different policing resources are needed.

There will be an opportunity for photographs and interviews.

Note: All media are invited to attend.
