The “report a cop, reward a cop” hotline which was launched by Western Cape MEC of Community Safety Dan Plato in July last year has received on average 20 calls a week.
Plato’s Spokesperson Greg Wagner said the highest number of complaints received by the hotline came from Delft, Grassy Park and Elsies River.
Wagner said the purpose of the hotline 021 483 4332 is to allow the public to comment on policing performance, if it be because they are happy or unhappy.
Wagner adds that if they have any complaints about how they are being treated by police and they give this information to the hotline, Wagner says that the department is then able to take it up with the provincial police commissioner and address it through the proper channels.
Wagner says this will ensure that an improved policing service be provided to the public.
