The opening of the SAPS Contact Point – Booysens/ Moffatview on Friday, 9 September coincided with a community anti-drug awareness march. “The contact centre is a significant move that will help improve relationships between the police and local community,” Public Safety MMC Michael Sun said. “It is part of the City’s work to improve access for residents.”
The building housing the centre was made available by the local community business forum, which was formed in October 2015.
“The presence of the contact centre in the area will make policing more visible, which we hope will have a major impact on the crimes that are committed in this area,” Nicolette Pingo, JDA said, adding that the centre would also be used for community safety programmes run by the SAPS and JMPD. “Today’s event demonstrates the actions of many who have vision and passion for the southern area of the city,”
