Mokgotho, Ms SM to ask the Minister of Police
What are the reasons that the Sun City Satellite Police Station in Moses Kotane Local Municipality is closed?
The number of South African Police Service (SAPS) members at the Sun City Police Station, was reduced by seven members during the last year, influencing the availability of members to operate the Satellite Police Station, on a full-time basis.
The premises, which was used for the Sun City Police Station, was a small office, which was lent to the SAP6 by the tribal council of Mabeskraal. With the outbreak of COVID-19 the office did not meet the standards of the COVID-19 protocols, e.g. social distancing, etc. for the protection of the community and SAPS members.
As a result of the abovementioned situation, the Sun City Police Station now makes use of a mobile Community Service Centre that visits the affected community, two to three times a week, to ensure that the services rendered by the previous “Satellite Office" are maintained.
A new Police Station for Mabeskraal is currently in the final stages of completion, after which the community will be able to receive permanent police services.
