Western Cape MEC of Community Safety Dan
Plato has raised concern about the office in Bishop Lavis which has seen at
least five break-ins this year.
In a statement MEC Plato the office, which
houses important information on investigations into organised crime, gangs and
drugs, have reportedly become a hot spot for vandalism and theft, with laptops
allegedly stolen from the premises.
Ministerial Spokesperson Ewald Botha said
if the allegations are true MEC Plato said this poses a major security risk for
the SAPS and a safety risk for community members who have been assisting police
in their investigations into organised crime, gangs and drugs in the province.
Botha added that MEC Plato said this is a
serious mismanagement which the Provincial SAPS heads have to account for.
