CPF elections postponed again

2018-05-01 06:00

The election of a new community policing forum for the Lentegeur policing precinct has been postponed following a lack of attendance from local
organisations.

The elections were set to be held on Thursday last week at the Lentegeur Police Station boardroom but were postponed as there was no corum to elect the new
executive.

Earlier this year, police held an imbizo to call on residents’ support in selecting office bearers (“CPF elections soon”, People’s Post, 20 March).

A call then went out to the community and safety organisations to register with police to be part of the elections.

“As was promoted in the community newspapers on Thursday 26 April, a new CPF executive would be elected for the Lentegeur police precinct.

“However, community members of the various organisations along with police management agreed for the postponement of the elections,” says police spokesperson, Constable Shaun Abrahams.

“A new date was set out for the elections. This will be held on Thursday 10 May at 19:30 at the Lentegeur Police Station boardroom. Members of all organisations are urged to register their respective organisations on Saturday 5 May at the station.”

The forum became dysfunctional when executive members resigned for various reasons last year.

This left only two positions occupied (“CPF dead in the water”, People’s Post, 30 May).

Following this, residents were called to an election meeting at the boardroom in May, but due to residents challenging the process, the elections were postponed.

Further postponements resulted in police management enlisting assistance from
residents.

Coupled with this, a by-election will also be held for the sector 4 sub-forum on Tuesday 8 May at the mini boardroom.

Residents from Old Woodlands, Morgens Village, Harmony Village are affected and urged to attend.VFor more information on the election call sector
