The Western Cape Safety Plan (WCSP) has taken a significant step forward with the graduation of 33 newly trained Peace Officers (POs). These officers, consisting of 14 from the Overstrand municipal area and 19 from the Drakenstein municipal area, represent the government’s commitment to reinforcing municipal law enforcement capacity. The training, resourcing, and development of these officers, costing over R 1.8 million, is aimed at enhancing safety and combatting crime in urban and rural communities.
The Garden Route area in South Africa has been constantly striving to improve its safety measures. In line with this, Western Cape Premier Alan Winde and Provincial Minister of Police Oversight and Community Safety Reagen Allen recently celebrated the graduation of 40 Peace Officers (PO’s) in the province. This initiative forms a crucial part of the Western Cape Safety Plan (WCSP).
Mossel Bay and George, two municipalities in South Africa, are celebrating the graduation of 23 Peace Officers (POs), who will contribute to the fight against crime and enhance safety within their communities. With an additional 17 officers set to graduate in Hessequa in May 2023, this marks a significant milestone in the Western Cape Safety Plan (WCSP), aimed at reinforcing Municipal Law Enforcement capacity throughout the Western Cape.
