THE Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality (NMBM) Safety and Security Directorate has boosted its senior staff complement with the appointment of Warren Prins as its director for Traffic and Licensing and Arlin Robile as the director for Security.

Prins, boasting a diploma in traffic services and a qualification in municipal police management, started his career in 1993 and worked as an assistant traffic chief in Mossel Bay, as well as the manager of protection services at Koukamma Municipality, among others.

Robile started his career at the NMBM as a security guard in 1990 and was promoted to assistant security officer in 1991.

In 1994 he became a traffic officer and earned another promotion in 1999 to become senior traffic officer, before being appointed in 2004 as the assistant director for Security Services.

“We are very glad that we appointed a traffic chief to take over from Hamilton Totoyi who retired in 2015,” said MMC for Safety and Security, John Best.

“Arlin Robil, in turn, takes over from Reverend Howard Hans as head of Security. Hans retired in 2010 so that position has been vacant for seven years. Robile has acted in the position since 2012.

“Both Prins and Robile started their new roles from November 1.

“As you are aware, we already appointed an experienced executive director in Advocate Keith Meyer. He starts on December 1.

“For the first time in nine years we have a full complement of senior staff at Security Services and are well on our way to fill other positions as well.

“We have the summer season ahead of us and with this team in place, we are confident that we will deliver a safe city for tourists and residents alike,” Best concluded.
