New W Cape police boss starts work

2010-10-01 13:40
Johannesburg - The Western Cape's new police commissioner, Lieutenant General Arno Lamoer, will take up his new position on Friday October 1, national police spokesperson Vish Naidoo said.

Lamoer was appointed as acting provincial commissioner, Naidoo said.

He would be in an acting capacity until someone was appointed permanently.

Lamoer was taking over from Lieutenant General Mzwandile Petros, who recently became Gauteng's police commissioner, the Cape Argus website reported on Thursday.

Lamoer entered the national policing stage as a divisional commissioner, first as head of operational response services and then as head of visible policing for the entire country.

Former community safety MEC Lennit Max described Lamoer as a policeman who had worked through the ranks and who had served as one of his key and trusted lieutenants while he was provincial commissioner.

"I will come down to assess what the previous provincial commissioner put in place," Lamoer said of his immediate priorities as provincial police commissioner.
