Elmarie van Dalen, Chairperson of AfriForum’s Overstrand branch, and Thomas van Dalen, AfriForum’s Provincial Coordinator for the Western Cape, yesterday handed a copy of the cooperative agreement recently entered into by AfriForum and the Acting National Police Commissioner to Col Luthando Nosilela, Police Commander in Hermanus.
Col Nosilela said during the event that he is willing to work with any organisation that prioritises the combating of crime. He also mentioned that “partnerships” is one of the four pillars on which the SAPS’s crime combating philosophy is founded.
“The AfriForum neighbourhood watches in Overstrand are at the disposal of the SAPS where crime needs to be combated,” says Elmarie van Dalen.
“AfriForum realises that no organisation can be effective in isolation and therefore we encourage partnerships with other role-players in the community. Crime can only be constrained by means of a holistic approach,” adds Thomas van Dalen.
