The SAPS KZN Police Band thrilled the crowd with a potpourri of English and Indian songs to enthrall those in attendance in a presentation that both educated and entertained.

Jackson, Mounthaven CPF chairman, said the primary aim of the CPF was to take back their communities from the criminals operating in the area.

“This event is simply part of a long process of tackling the crime problem in our area, and the bridges we have built between the community and the police will only be strengthened as we continue to work together,” said Jackson.

“The fight against crime is everybody’s business; an injury to one is an injury to all,” he added.

Colonel Ngubane, Verulam SAPS station commissioner, together with Verulam CPF chairman Duncan Dube both recognised the value of the event in the grand scheme of anti-drugs education and called for more events of its kind in the Verulam area in the future.

“The Mounthaven CPF is deeply indebted to Mounthaven Primary School for its continued partnership with us and we look forward to continue working together in the fight against drugs,” said Jackson.
