Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa says the country is ready for any possible event, during the Cop17 climate talks in Durban.

Over two-and-a-half-thousand designated officers have been deployed around the event grounds, and many others at the points of entries into the country.

Mthethwa says training programmes, including simulation operations, have been completed.

The National Joint Intelligence Structure is working closely with their United Nations counterparts, as well as with police services in the region.
