Lazer 911 and Hope Park have started work on a new community policing office, situated at the entrance of Hope Park on Dairy Road.

The aim of the centre is to improve safety and security for the Hope Park area and increase community policing in surrounding areas as well. The free facility will be open to the entire community of the Ray Nkonyeni Municipality.

The centre will be manned and operated 24 hours by Lazer 911, who will be working closely in conjunction with SAPS and Protection services.

The new office has been made possible by assistance from generous sponsors. So far, the floor slab has been completed and further sponsorship is required so the project can be finalised as soon as possible. Sponsors willing to provide building materials, fencing, funding and labour are most welcome. A similar facility will be provided at Oslo Beach Park.

“We want to keep you all as safe as possible,” said Basil Lanka of Lazer 911. “Most of our officers are ex-policemen, so expect to be ready for the new year!” he said.

To contribute contact Lanka at 082 822 2911 or Pastor Reggie John at 082 822 7399.
