On Wednesday the Western Cape Legislature passed the Western Cape Community Safety Bill which will improve the way in which the provincial government conducts oversight over the police and significantly contribute to increasing community safety.

DA shadow Minister of police Dianne Kohler Barnard said it will also improve community police relations and act as a catalyst for more efficient policing.

Kohler Barnard adds that this is why the DA challenges all ANC run provinces to follow the Western Cape’s lead.

Barnard said that the WC Community Safety Bill will allow provincial government to oversee the effectiveness of the police services and create a formal oversight relationship between the department of community safety and the SAPS.

“This Bill gives the state constitutional oversight responsibility of the province” Kohler Barnard added.
