Comment on Draft Community Safety Regulation 2015: Before 15 February 2016
The Department of Community Safety invites you to comment on the Draft Community Safety Regulations, 2015 which was published on Friday, 11 December 2015 in the Provincial Gazette.
The regulations deal with the monitoring, oversight and assessment of policing, the accreditation and the support of neighbourhood watches, a database and partnerships with community organisations (including security service providers) and the regular reporting on crime statistics by the Provincial Commissioner and the Executive Head of the Municipal Police.
Comments on the draft regulation should be submitted by no later than 15 February 2016.
Please take note that the accreditation of neighbourhood watches is completely voluntarily. See section 6(1) of the Act. The Department or the Minister will, however, in future only support accredited neighbourhood watches.
Public sessions will be held in various regions in order to discuss the regulations. Further details will follow in a further communication.
