Newly appointed Western Cape Minister for Community Safety, Alan Winde, says 85% of all police stations in the province are understaffed. He was briefing the media in Cape Town following a meeting with the Provincial Commissioner for Police, Khombinkosi Jula, to map out future joint crime-fighting strategies. Winde lamented the shortage of police officials in the Western Cape compared to other provinces. He says the provincial average police member to population ratio is 1 police official to more than 500 residents. He says from 2013 the number of police personnel has been reduced from 22 to 21 000 officials, hampering crime fighting efforts. According to the latest crime statistics 83% of all gang related murders in the country occurred in the Western Cape.

  1. Is this the future Premier of the Western Cape? He should work with the Provincial commissioner in coming up with strategies instead of giving us problems. Also what is local government doing with its law enforcement personnel to fight crime.

  2. The amount of Cops is tolerable. It’s the laws of this country which should be amended .It’s easy .Declare Gangsterism as an Act of Terrorism Against the Republic of South Africa and reinstate the Death for murder,rape and Druglords
