More than 100 representatives from partner organisations to the Mitchell’s Plain police station attended an inter-denominational dedication service, aimed at strengthening their relationships.

Representatives attended the service held at the Beacon Valley Baptist Church on Tuesday 4 February.

Organisations represented include walking buses, street and block watches, neighbourhood watches, the community policing forum, Safer Schools, victim support, YMCA, non-government organisations and government departments.

Other partners unable to attend include the national department of justice, departments of social development, community safety, City law enforcement units and correctional services.

Spokesperson for the station, Capt Ian Williams, says the initiative is aimed at thanking the partners for their dedication and strengthening the cooperation for the year ahead.

“The heart of the matter is a matter of the heart,” says Williams, stating it is only through partnership that they can see a positive change and reduction in crime.

Various ministers shared inspiring messages and a prayer for the officers and volunteers as they continue to fight crime in the precinct.

The event included songs of praise and worship and a rendition of the national anthem, followed by the reading of the police code of conduct.
