Vuk'uzenzele - - Safyeotuyt&h Sfeocursity -

a lO­Cal BUsiNessmaN has do­nated premises to the Jo­han­nes­burg Met­ro­pol­i­tan Po­lice Depart­ment (JMPD) to en­sure that res­i­dents liv­ing in the south of Jo­han­nes­burg are safer.

the JMPD has opened a satel­lite sta­tion in Ke­nil­worth, south of Jo­han­nes­burg, an area that has been heav­ily im­pacted by drugs and hu­man traf­fick­ing.

The sta­tion will have over 20 of­fi­cers on duty and will op­er­ate 24-hours a day.

It will ser­vice com­mu­ni­ties in Ke­nil­worth, Turf­fontein and Roset­tenville which have been plagued by drugs, hu­man traf­fick­ing and other crimes and will also at­tend to nu­mer­ous other com­plaints re­lated to the City of Jo­han­nes­burg’s by­laws, drunken driv­ing, al­co­hol abuse, noise lev­els and il­le­gal dump­ing.

Ac­cord­ing to JMPD su­per­in­ten­dent Wayne Min­naar, the prop­erty was do­nated by The South­ern Business Com­mu­nity Fo­rum and businessman Mario Stephanou, and was de­vel­oped into a satel­lite sta­tion by the JMPD.

“The satel­lite sta­tion is right in the base where problems used to oc­cur be­fore and this will make it much eas­ier for us to re­spond to in­ci­dents of crime.

“It is also in di­rect con­tact with of­fi­cers on pa­trol, so should there be any sit­u­a­tion which they need to re­spond to, they can do so swiftly.

“I must say that we are truly thank­ful for the do­na­tion. It goes to show that we are not alone in the fight against crime in our com­mu­ni­ties,” said Min­naar.

The new Jo­han­nes­burg Met­ro­pol­i­tan Po­lice Depart­ment satel­lite sta­tion will make Ke­nil­worth feel safer.
