Crime fight­ing should be a co­or­di­nated ini­tia­tive

Zululand Observer - Monday - - ZO LETTERS -

Crime seems to be on the in­crease in our city. This in spite of the tire­less ef­forts of some in­di­vid­u­als - Tania (who sel­dom sleeps), Don­ald and Rod­ney, among oth­ers, in our Velden­vlei area, to­gether with pa­trollers.

Many se­cu­rity firms are also very ac­tive. They com­pete with one another for clients, which is un­der­stand­able.

SAPS also con­tinue their strug­gle un­der many con­straints and are will­ing to risk their lives for our safety.

But would it not sound the death knell to crim­i­nals if ev­ery­one could work to­gether in com­plete co­op­er­a­tion?

Would the for­ma­tion of a Ratepay­ers As­so­ci­a­tion be a step in the right di­rec­tion?

Such an or­gan­i­sa­tion could have some clout in in­flu­enc­ing our Coun­cil to spend our money wisely to in­crease the safety of our com­mu­nity.

Thank you to all the good peo­ple who work self­lessly for the safety of our com­mu­nity.
