DA to present tangible plan to launch metro police

Media Advisory:

Tomorrow, 12 January 2016, the DA will present a tangible, comprehensive plan to launch a metro police force in Nelson Mandela Bay.

Gangsterism and crime keep our people in constant fear with 80% of Nelson Mandela Bay’s residents too afraid to go out at night.

A strong metro police force will greatly improve the fight against gangsterism and crime across Nelson Mandela Bay.

DA Mayoral Candidate for NMB, Athol Trollip, will visit the family of 2 year old Caydene Ruiters, who was shot and killed in gang crossfire late last year.

This will be followed by a presentation of a plan to launch a metro police force.

Date: 12 January 2016
Time: 10:00
