Western Cape MEC of Community Safety will today officially launch the 2016/17 provincial Policing Needs and Priorities determination process.

The annual determination of the policing needs and priorities in the province will see the Department of Community Safety hold public consultation sessions for each of the 16 police clusters between May and October this year.

Spokesperson for MEC Plato, Ewald Botha says.... 

“A key feature of the 2016/17 PNP process will be the extensive training provided to Neighbourhood Watches and Community Policing Forums – the pulse of citizen-led safety interventions in the communities”.

He says “The engagements will take the format of a two-day consultative workshop and will include representatives of the South African Police Service, Municipalities, Community Police Forums, Community Safety Forums, non-governmental organisations, community based organisations, faith based organisations, Neighbourhood Watches, and other local safety stakeholders”.

“This weekend, the communities of Cloetesville, Franschhoek, Groot-Drakenstein, Klapmuts, Mbekweni, Paarl, Paarl East, Stellenbosch and Wellington have the opportunity over the two days to contribute to the Safety Plan, as a safety blueprint for communities which provides a shared ownership, responsibility and accountability to safety”. Botha ended.
