The Minister of Community Safety, Albert Fritz, is calling on members of the public to nominate suitable persons for the non-governmental organisation (NGO) vacancy in the Provincial Safety Advisory Committee (PSAC). The purpose of the committee is to advise the Provincial Minister of Community Safety on matters related to safety and policy.

The appointment to PSAC is made in terms of section 25 of the  Western Cape Community Safety Act, 2013 (Act 3 of 2013) (the “WCCSA”).

  2. A member of the judiciary, the Cape Bar or the Cape Law Society;
  3. A senior member of an academic institution with experience in the field of criminology;
  4. A representative from an NGO involved in policing or related areas (vacant); and
  5. The Head of the Provincial Department of Community Safety as ex officio member. 

Minister Fritz said, “In line with section 26(3) of the WCCSA, I invite all interested parties to submit the names of persons who in their opinion are fit and proper persons to be appointed as a member of the Western Cape PSAC for purposes of filling the NGO representative vacancy.”
