Minister Plato hosts second safety meeting in Delft

5 September 2016

Tonight, Monday 5 September 2016, Western Cape Minister of Community Safety, Dan Plato, will host a second safety meeting in Delft.

Tonight’s meeting is an extension of the public engagement from last week which followed numerous complaints Minister Plato has received over recent weeks regarding general safety in Delft with increased reporting of gang and drug related crime and shootings.


Various stakeholders have been invited to the meeting tonight, including the local police, Community Policing Forum (CPF), Neighbourhood Watch, local councillors, religious leaders and community leaders, to listen to the various grievances and to try and identify the root causes for a situation which can never be accepted as normal.


Safety is everyone’s responsibility. If existing safety structures are not working optimally or effectively, or if serious problems exist with current law enforcement strategies, we have to collectively address these as a matter of urgency to improve the safety of the community of Delft.


There will be an opportunity for photographs and interviews.


Note: All media are invited to attend.



Date: Monday, 5 September 2016

Time: 18:30

Venue: Delft South Community Centre, Delft Main Road, Delft-South
