Fighting crime is everyone's responsibility and in order to ensure a safe and secure environment for all people, it is important for the SAPS to work in close unison with the community and business sector.
SAPS Kabega Park has fostered an excellent working relationship with their external partners and on Wednesday, 12 June 2019, the station gave recognition to all by awarding them with certificates of appreciation. Various community structures such as the Neighbourhood Watch, Community Watch, Farm Comm and Boerevereniging in Fitchards Corner are some of the force multipliers in our fight against Crime. The Community Policing Forum contributed immensely in ensuring that the social crime prevention programmes are successfully implemented.
Various organisations and businesses which included among others GEM Projects, Kuyga Youth co-ordinator, Spar Group, Badge and Trophy Guy, and Eastern Cape Cricket were recognised for their unwavering and generous contributions towards the youth and poor communities. A total of 32 appreciation certificates were issued to 16 crime fighting structures. The event took place at the Avondale Christian Assembly Church on at 18:00. The ceremony was honoured by the presence of Brig Xuwuka who represented the Cluster Commander; Ms Faro, the Chief of Metro Police; Mr Suka, Mayoral Committee member for Safety and Liaison and a Regional court magistrate, Mr Lesele.
Any obstacle can be overcome if there is a dedicated, passionate and focussed driven team. Focussing on problems would never result in the positive however finding solutions and turning them into success stories is what makes all the difference. Teamwork and a dedicated team will soar above the criminals and together we can give back to the community what they truly deserve - peace and harmony in a safer community.
