MEDIA ALERT: Minister Plato hosts Paarl East Policing Needs and Priorities (PNP) consultation session

 

Tomorrow, Friday 4 August 2017, Western Cape Minister of Community Safety, Dan Plato, and the Department of Community Safety will host the first leg of the Paarl East Policing Needs and Priorities (PNP) determination process.

The 2017/18 PNP engagements will take the format of two separate consultative workshops.

The first engagement will see presentations from all role-players and dissemination of the 2016/17 PNP reports to ensure a common understanding of information available. From here both the safety perception survey will be completed and inputs gathered on the specific policing needs, priorities and safety concerns.

The second engagement will see the development of a detailed, implementable and agreed upon safety plan at a local level to help improve safety.

The 2017/18 PNP determination process will see the Department of Community Safety concentrate on the Saldanha Bay, Nyanga/Gugulethu (Gunya), Paarl East and Khayelitsha precincts.

With a focussed approach on these areas we aim to have a better coordinated and agreed upon Safety Plan, implementable by all the relevant stakeholders, especially the Municipalities.

To help create safer environments, effective partnerships are needed between the police, law enforcement entities, all spheres of government and communities as a united front.

There will be an opportunity for photographs and interviews.
