Manenberg community vows to fight crime
By Chanel September
The Manenberg community policing forum and the police have vowed to strengthen their fight against crime and drugs in the area.
Residents were encouraged to express their concerns on crime and suggest fighting measures to stop the problem.
Deputy Police Commissioner Glen Schooling was at the Manenberg Community Hall last week and told the community that crime in Manenberg had dropped markedly, but that there was still room for improvement.
He attributed the success to strong co-operation between the police and the community. According to IOL, Schooling said that the police were working on a number of projects, including Safer Trains and Safer Schools projects.
Some community members suggested regular police raids on shebeens and the homes of suspected druglords.
