Minister Allen to embark on West Coast district safety initiatives

22 February 2023

Tomorrow, 23 February 2023, Western Cape Minister of Police Oversight and Community Safety, Reagen Allen, will embark on various safety initiatives in parts of the West Coast District.

These include the following:

  1. Safety awareness walk with the Rural Reaction Unit in Kalbaskraal and Chatsworth, Malmesbury,
  2. Unannounced SAPS station visits to selected police stations,
  3. Vehicle checkpoint (VCP) Saldanha Bay municipal area and
  4. Engaging the Tabakbaai neighbourhood watch

The newly appointed Provincial Minister of Mobility, Ricardo Mackenzie will join the VCP.

Minister Allen said: “I am looking forward to these engagements and activities. The Swartland K9 unit have been part of significant firearm and ammunition discoveries over the last few days, while the reaction unit have also made their presence felt in various ways. The successes that they are achieving is the very reason why we, as the Western Cape government invested in them. Our aim is to ensure greater safety throughout the entire province.”
