THE Sizakala Customer Service Centre in the Hillcrest, in conjunction with Enforce Security, Metro police and SAPS, held an awareness roadblock last week.

Motorist were educated on remote jamming, smash and grabs and informed about the role of the Sizekala Custom Service Centre.

Nikki Mohlmann of Enforce Security Services said Sizkala is a Zulu word meaning “get help”.

She said that the Sizakala Customer Service Centre is essentially a place where residents can go for assistance on any council-related query.

“The centre has a responsibility to ensure that eThekwini residents have easy and equal access to, and receive the best possible service from the council. A number of Sizakala Customer Service Centres have been opened throughout the eThekwini Municipality area to ensure that these services are brought closer to residents,” she said.

“The Sizakala Customer Services Centre offers a range of municipal services from opening new accounts to reporting faults, from providing information to logging complaints to submission of various forms.”

Residents need to be more vigilant about remote jamming in malls and car-jackings she said.

“We want to educate shopping centres on remote-jamming devices and how to prevent motorist from becoming victims. One should always double check that their doors are locked before walking away from their vehicle,” Mohlmann said. - Supplied
