CPF raises concern about ignoring curfew
crime

Concerns have been raised by the Parow Community Policing Forum (CPF) around a suspected disregard for the curfew implemented by government as part of the alert level 1 lockdown regulations.

As part of the regulations, people are not allowed to be out in public during midnight and 04:00.

Roger Cannon, CPF spokesperson, says many people, especially students, are neglecting to obey the law.

The CPF and Parow police conducted a crime prevention operation, mainly focussing on drug trafficking, in the central business district recently where they observed many nightclubs and bars not adhering to the rules.

Instead they operate well beyond midnight.

“They’ve got to close their businesses before the time and give people time to get home. People do not have a proper understanding of the curfew,” says Cannon.

The operation was conducted on Friday 2 October.

The police and CPF mainly concentrated around the Voortrekker Road corridor.

“We found that the people want to stay until midnight or that they want to hang around until 01:00. I do not think people have a proper idea of what the curfew is about.

“The colonel went in to tell them that they cannot wait until 02:00, he informed them that they need to close early in order to give people time to go home.”

A lot of the people were also found standing outside in the car parks of these establishments, drinking alcohol.

He says despite disobeying the law, no one was arrested that night.
