Dan Plato, MPP
Western Cape Minister of Community Safety
Today, 14 October 2014, Western Cape Minister of Community Safety, Dan Plato, will host the Provincial Policing Needs and Priorities (PNP) consultation process for the communities of Muizenberg, Hout Bay, Fish Hoek, Ocean View and Simon’s Town.
During these meetings, communities have the opportunity to identify, discuss and confirm the specific needs and priorities facing their communities and engage the Minister of Community Safety, Community Policing Forum (CPF) and Cluster CPF Chairpersons, their respective Neighbourhood Watch structures, and South African Police Services (SAPS) station commanders.
Tomorrow’s meeting will be the 15th public engagement as part of the Department of Community Safety’s five month consultation process across the province which aims to gather information from communities on their specific policing needs and priorities. The inputs from all 25 meetings to be held in the province will be included in the PNP report to be submitted to the National Minister of Police for his consideration when determining where different policing resources are needed.
It is important that all communities use the consultation process as an opportunity to have their say on their safety concerns. Through the PNP, the Western Cape Government is committed to working Better Together to increase the safety of all our communities.
