Lusanda Bill 24 April 2015

The Western Cape MEC of Community Safety Dan Plato on Thursday launched safety kiosks which will help tackle security issues and try and reduce crime in the province.

This partnership between the City of Cape Town and the provincial government will see a rollout of 40 Safety Kiosks with some in communities that are regarded as gang and crime hotspots.

The department has made available about R2 million to train about 100 Law Enforcement Auxiliary Officers.

Ministerial Spokesperson Ewald Botha said the 40 kiosks will be equipped and will be a point of safety which victims such as victims of domestic violence will be able to wait for SAPS arrival and medical attention.

Botha said the kiosks will provide communities with an easy point of rare services which include certification of documents and serves as a departure point for services currently piloted by the Department of Community Safety.

“The first 14 safety kiosks to be rolled out will be deployed in Mitchell’s Plain, Tafelsig, Manenberg, Wesbank, Hanover Park, Khayelitsha gets two, Nyanga, Paarl East, Grassy Park, the Voortrekker Road, Parow and Bellville train station in partnership with Metrorail, Brackenfell, Plettenberg Bay, Montague Gardens and Clarke Estate” Botha added.
