Premier Zille and Minister Dan Plato to Visit Lavender Hill SAPS Base Camp

5 September 2018

Tomorrow, Thursday 6 September, Premier Helen Zille will visit the SAPS base camp in Lavender Hill. She will be joined by provincial Minister of Community Safety, Dan Plato.

The Lavender Hill SAPS base camp is one of four such initiatives, with the others based in Uitsig, Philippi East and Tafelsig in Mitchells Plain.

The operation – designed to enhance policing visibility and ensure a 24/7 SAPS presence - involves the deployment of 257 Public Order Policing personnel from across the country to nine Western Cape crime hotspots for a temporary period.

Lavender Hill forms part of the Steenberg Police Station precinct, where the police-to-population-ratio is currently one officer to 533 residents, compared to the national average of one officer for every 369 residents.

There will be an opportunity for interviews and photographs.
