CPF, SAPS meet with residents of Welkom

The Welkom Community Policing Forum (CPF) and the management of the South African Police Services (SAPS) in Welkom organised an Imbizo where all stakeholders gathered to engage with the residents of Welkom at large.

It took place in the Ferdie Meyer Hall in Welkom on 1 August.

The Imbizo was organised by the Welkom CPF and the police in Welkom under the leadership of Brig. Disebo Cezula, and the chairperson of the CPF, Zack Rossouw.

Crime pattern analysis, detection successes and new community projects (including CCTV cameras) were presented during the meeting.

The sector managers were also introduced to the residents.

The programme director was Capt. Stephen Thakeng.

Past. Jackie Botes delivered a message of encouragement and a prayer to open the event.

Capt. Marius Kramer presented a crime pattern analysis, talked about the hotspots in the area for crime and the recovery plan to address crime within the Welkom police station’s precinct.

Residents were given an opportunity to raise their concerns about service delivery and their appreciation towards the men and women in uniform.

Col. Beaulah Seyaya, the commander of Welkom’s Visible Policing Unit, informed the residents on drug abuse awareness at schools, which will be conducted from time to time.

She explained that the two approaches to this problem would entail a soft approach (when awareness campaigns will be done) and a hard approach (when learn­ers will be searched).

Learners who are found to be involved in criminal acts face the might of the law, said Seyaya.

Maki Moorosi of the Liquor Board spoke about the procedure regard­ing liquor premises compliance to the law. He also talked about the kind of taverns closing at 04:00.

Residents were given guidelines with regards to their concerns about taverns within residential areas.

Rossouw requested residents to be involved in the Welkom community CCTV camera project, which will be activated in the Welkom CBD. He said especially business people must become involved in this project.

Col. Christo van der Merwe presented the successes of the police’s Detective Services Unit in Welkom.

He also talked about the latest technology which is used to assist in ensuring that perpetrators of crime face the might of the law because of concise evidence presented in the court of law.
