Law enforcement officers recruited

Ten Kraaifontein residents have been appointed as auxiliary law enforcement officers by the City of Cape Town.

Mayoral committee member for urban management, Grant Twigg, spoke to the recruits about what the job requires.

“Kraaifontein as a whole is a crime hotspot and they were brought in because there was a need for more law enforcement officers to assist in the central business district and other hotspots in fighting crime,” Twigg said.

He further said this will bring relief to residents.

“I encourage them to work well together, look after one another and make sure that the community is safe.”

Sinazo Mcetywa, one of the recruits, said she was thankful to have been chosen as one of the law enforcement officers.

“I am so excited about the appointment, more especially because of the change in jobs.

“I worked as a bank teller. I am looking forward to learning new skills and looking after the community,” Mcetywa said.

Like Mcetywa, Jonathan Jacobs said he was excited.

“I cannot wait to start working, we are still waiting for our uniform and then the training will start,” he said.

He said the appointment symbolises a new beginning.

“I had to give up a lot of things to be here, including my job as a driver. It was a decent job and I was getting paid good money, but it was not what I wanted to do with my life.”

He said he cannot wait to start doing work in the community.
