CPFs are the cornerstone of safety in the community

2019-01-16 06:00

AHEAD of the Alexandra Road South African Police Services Sector One Community Policing Forum (CPF) meeting at the end of this month, Ward 33 Councillor Nkululeko Mkhize, who serves on the CPF for both Loop Street and Alexandra police stations, has highlighted the importance of the CPF and urged all community members to attend the meeting.

“With crime on the rise; robberies, house break-ins and hijackings dominating the headlines daily, the CPF meetings are an absolutely necessary instrument we should use,” said Mkhize.

Mkhize said that the CPF is a platform where community members, organisations and other relevant stakeholders meet with the police to discuss local crime-preventative initiatives. “The effectiveness of this platform knows no bounds and we need to use this platform to build relationships with fellow community members so that we can tackle crime as a united front,” said Mkhize.

Mkhize said that community safety requires a joint effort by all, with neighbours being in close contact with one another and having their local police station number saved to their mobile devices. “We need to go back to the old-fashioned neighbourly love approach,” said Mkhize.

The CPF meeting will be on January 29 from 6 pm to 7 pm at Club Phumula at the Alexandra Road Police Station. Confirm attendance with Sergeant Le Roux at 033 845 7716 or chairperson of Sector One Malcolm Moodley at 072 912 4353.
