Eastern Cape: Joint rural policing strategy to be piloted in Eastern Cape

Zwelitsha: The Eastern Cape Provincial Commissioner is delighted that her province was chosen to host a six month pilot of the rural policing strategy. This was annouced earlier today by Police National Commissioner, General Khehla Sitole after a daylong work session at Zwelitsha in Eastern Cape.

Various stakeholders in attendance deliberated and unanimously agreed that eight clusters will be working closely with Traditional Authorities to roll out the pilot stage.

National Commissioner General Sitole was accompanied by Deputy National Commissioner Lt Gen Mfazi and senior police national management members.

Eastern Cape Provincial government was represented by Chairperson of Portfolio Committe on Safety in EC Legislature, Mr Peter including representatives from Cogta, Safety and Liaison while the Traditional Authority delegation was led by Prince Burns Ncamashe of AmaXhosa kingdom.

Prince Burns Ncamashe outlined the purpose of the joint work session saying, "It\'s a paradigm shift towards going back to the basics namely the African concept of policing known as Traditional authority policing."

Prince Ncamashe said we need to learn best practices from other countries like Botswana, Ghana and even USA. "They have best practices that can be explored to improve our own systems, " he quipped.

The establishment of a comprehensive policy framework which will enable the government to address crime in a coordinated and focused manner which draws on the resources of all government agencies including civil society is needed said Prince Ncamashe.

Mr Kani, Acting HOD at Safety, Transport and Liaison led the session of question and answers where a notable emphasis on the relevance of moral regeneration as one of the key backbones and drivers of rural policing was a common point of agreement.

Brigadier Mtukushe who is in charge of the rural Mount Ayliff Cluster wanted to know how community policing and rural safety overlap. General Sitole explained that most of the times our tools and structures end up conflicting with our strategies. He further committed himself to come back to Eastern Cape to have a meeting with all the structures involved in community policing in order to clarify and explain further.

Chairperson of Portfolio Comittee of Safety and liaison from Eastern Cape Legislature -Mr Peter lobbied for the extension of this work session to Traditional Authorities and also reconsideration of the demarcation and alignment of boundaries and jurisdiction.

Mr Peter said crime is an International problem and every authority have to come up with a plan or else crime will take over. "There is a notable displacement of crime from urban to rural areas. We are also confronted with a challenge of human trafficking and it is clear, need more police officials, " noted Mr Peter.

National Commissioner rounded off the discussions and responded to other issues raised. " Rural safety is an integral part of community policing, " said General Sitole. These terms are interconnected and suggested that a workshop to unpack these concepts should also be held soon.

Responding to the question on resources he said, "You will be provided with resources according to demand, requirement and need."

A spiritual component of rural policing strategy will also unfold soon under the leadership of religious leadership.

A team was assembled to begin drafting the strategy and implementation. These key players were identified and strategically deployed to help in the planning, pilot and evaluation of the effectiveness of the strategy. RuralSafety
