TAKING Mountain Rise Community Policing Forum to the next level is what the newly elected CPF chairman, Jay Jugwanth, plans to do.

“Mountain Rise needs to get moving.

“We have to take the CPF to the people in order to get the most out of the forum and get community members actively involved in fighting crime in the community,” said Jugwanth.

He said when he looked at the way other CPFs were working he found that Mountain Rise was behind in the modern trends and needed to fully embrace the digital era.

Under his leadership the Mountain Rise CPF website will be launched and monitored on a 24-hour basis, free of charge with the help of Snupit, South Africa’s number one search engine.

Jugwanth explained that the website will be for the community to keep informed about what ishappening in the area, including dates and times of meetings.

The website will also allow the community to communicate with the CPF, although it will not be a forum to lodge grievances and complaints, as those issues need to be directed to 10111.

Jugwanth said there are many plans that he and CPF members will be putting in place over the next year in order to address social ills in their community. There are plans to run anti-crime workshops in schools and empower teachers to help in the fight against crime.

He said that one of the new task forces, Combined Action Team (Cat), is a “magic” team.

“They are doing a wonderful job. The community needs to be the eyes and ears of Cat in order for them to continue rooting out crime in the community. Our job is to be the bridge between the community and the police in order for them to work together and build relationships with each other and fight against crime,” said Jugwanth
