Ngwenya, Ms DB to ask the Minister of Police
Whether there are any plans to build more police stations in (a) Mohlakeng and (b) Toekomsrus townships in the Rand West City Local Municipality, Gauteng, seeing that there is a rapid increase in the population of the specified townships and an increase in the rate of crime?
- A work study investigation, with regard to the upgrading of the Mohlakeng Satellite Police Station, to a fully-fledged police station, has been completed and is pending a decision by the South African Police Service (SAPS) Gauteng Provincial Management. The establishment of a fully-fledged police station, in Mohlakeng, will entail the division of the current Randfontein policing area, to establish separate poiicing areas for the two police stations.
- No, in the event that the work study investigation, which is referred to in paragraph (a) is approved, Toekomsrus will be policed by the proposed Mohlakeng Police Station.
