The Western Cape MEC of Community Safety Dan Plato welcomed the announcement of the expansion of Public Order Policing across the country. 

MEC Plato has raised some concerns regarding that no additional POP resources available to the police force in the province until 2016. 

MEC Plato in a statement said the current situation cannot continue any longer. 

Ministerial Spokesperson Ewald Botha said the Western Cape is earmarked for an additional 481 POP staff but none of them will be forthcoming in the first four years and a mere 70 staff have been made available in year two.

Botha said this is again pulling the straw when it comes to ensuring stability in the province everyday.

“National Police Commissioner Phiyega needs to explain to the SAPS in the province and the people of the Western Cape why their safety is not being taken seriously” Botha added.
