DANGEROUS weapons and drugs that had been recovered during the festive season were handed over to Martha Bartlett, MEC for Safety and Liaison in the Northern Cape, and Lt.Gen. Peter Shivuri, provincial police commissioner, by members of Wanya Tsotsi at the Galashewe Police Station on Friday (29/01).

Bartlett applauded the good work Wanya Tsotsi was doing in an effort to make its communities safer.

The MEC urged Wanya Tsotsi neighbourhood watch to work closer with the South African Police Service (SAPS) by submitting its operational plan to ensure that it functioned within the ambit of the law. Commitments were further made for continued meetings to be held between the department, the SAPS and Wanya Tsotsi.

Bartlett said that an effective and efficient response to violent crime required an holistic approach to community safety that took the causes of crime into consideration and responded to specific causal factors.

“Crime results from several interrelated societal elements that predispose some individuals or groups to certain types of activities,” Bartlett said.

She lauded the communities’ involvement in fighting crime.

“These successes and achievements could not have been possible without the support of our communities. They have contributed in terms of supplying information.

“I also would like to acknowledge the role our Community Policing Forum (CPF) played in mobilising our communities against crime and being the eyes and ears for the police.

“Let us unite and mobilise all our communities to act against crime, as we are approaching Safety Month.”
