Western Cape Community Safety Bill Passed
27 March 2013
Media Statement by the Minister of Community Safety, Dan Plato
On Wednesday, 27 March, the Western Cape Community Safety Bill was passed in the Western Cape Legislature with a significant majority.
The passing of this bill marks a first for oversight legislation by any province, and is important not only for this Provincial Government, but for South Africa as a whole.
Once enacted the Bill will allow us to oversee through legislation, the effectiveness of the police service, and where systemic problems are identified we will work with the police to fix these problems and make the Western Cape a safer place for all.
