Local police were, last Wednesday, awarded for their crime combating efforts.

Captain Ian Bennett, spokesperson for Manenberg Police Station, says the station’s successful partnership with the community saw the acknowledgment of both provincial and national police offices.

Manenberg’s station commander, Brigadier Enolium Joseph, was among those to receive an award for retrieving the most firearms and for work resulting in the successful prosecution and conviction of the leadership of gang leaders in the prevention of organised crime.

“Partnership in policing is always the way to success,” he explains.

“The award bestowed upon Manenberg police, for their good work, was due to the successful policing and community partnerships, as well as the continuous striving towards quality service delivery to all who live in and pass through the Manenberg policing precinct.

“A lot of hard work in coordinating and mobilising within the residential area saw the community being stabilised. Although we still have the odd gunshot and gang tension, we have not seen the area this quiet and calm.”

Religious leaders Sheik Salieg Isaacs and Moulana Sameeg Norodien were also thanked for their work, including ensuring that the moral regeneration of the residents is attended to, with the hope that people start believing in themselves and become spiritually aware of their responsibility towards sustaining peace in the volatile area.

Bennett reminds residents that the station’s integrated operational approach is to mobilise Metro Police and Law Enforcement, and to deploy members in the hotspot areas, saturating the area with additional policing forces.

“The City of Cape Town’s Metro Police and Law Enforcement specialised task teams, which include the Shot Spotter reaction teams and monitors, have without a doubt also contributed to these successes. It allows officers to police the area with an extra pair of eyes.

“Manenberg’s Serious and Violent Crimes Unit detectives have also ensured quality detection and investigation, ensuring that perpetrators are brought to book.”

He urges the community to continue working hand in hand with Manenberg police in order to fight crime.
