IN A PROACTIVE approach to community policing, the Strydenburg SAPS, in collaboration with the Pixley ka Seme District Office and various community stakeholders, recently held a comprehensive community engagement information session.

The session was graced by the presence of the deputy district commander for Pixley ka Seme, Colonel Zoyisile Nyalela, and the acting station commander of Strydenburg SAPS, Warrant Officer Francisco Naude. It provided a valuable platform for residents to voice their concerns on a range of issues including crime, health care, education, emergency services and municipal service delivery.

Key community concerns such as teenage pregnancy, bullying and drug use in schools were brought to the forefront. These issues are set to be tackled through targeted awareness campaigns and community outreach programmes.

This initiative underscores a proactive approach to community policing, aiming to strengthen ties between the police, the community and all involved stakeholders and to address challenges collectively and amicably.
