Chairperson resigns, sad loss

2016-04-06 06:00

IT is with deep disappointment to have learnt of the resignation of the chairperson of the Mountain Rise Community Police Forum, Jay Jugwanth.

Community policing is a concept that was adopted more than 20 years ago in South Africa. It has proved to be an essential partnership between the communities and SAPS.

Jugwanth an experienced retired, teacher devoted his retirement and many years to community service and SAPS

Media reports and the community that he was involved with always reported positively on Jugwanth’s commitment to improve the relations between the community and SAPS. Community awareness in the CPF was high for the first time in the Mountain Rise station’s areas of jurisdiction.

Both the community and SAPS have lost an excellent and enthusiastic individual. It is indeed a sad occasion for all.
