STOP CRIME NOW! Petition on behalf of the residents of Ward 15

We the residents of Ward 15 urgently petition the Minister of Policing and the Portfolio Committee of safety and security to ensure the protection of all residents against the very high levels of crime in Ekurhuleni. Despite residents taking every precaution to protect their property they are continuously the victims of violent crime, armed robberies, hijacking and even Murder. We also urgently request that satellite SAPS stations be set up in strategic areas. We also call on the South African Police Services (SAPS), to ensure that we are safe again, through: Increased visible policing, particularly in crime hot spots, more effective operations to reduce crime, improve crime intelligence to target crime areas (given the proximity of OR Tambo international Airport), the reintroduction of crime intelligence units to help curb and stop crime, Better public participation (working relationships with the community). As residents, we no longer feel safe in Kempton Park. It is the responsibility of the police to ensure that we are safe in our neighbourhood’s.
