Alberton neighbourhood watch supports SAPS during drug seizure

The AfriForum neighbourhood watch in Alberton worked with the SAPS and other security structures in the area on 12 July to curb drug trafficking. The special operation was carried out along JG Strijdom Road where drugs were confiscated and several arrests were made. Several role players were involved in the operation, including the Brackendowns SAPS, AfriForum’s Alberton neighbourhood watch, the Brackendowns CPF, the Ekurhuleni Metro Police, Fidelity ADT, Home Affairs: Immigration and React24 Security.

“AfriForum’s Alberton neighbourhood watch makes a real difference in their community. Successes like these are the cornerstone for us to be able to live together peacefully and build our future together. The specialist training that our neighbourhood watch members receive enables the good co-operation with the SAPS and other role players. This successful operation once again emphasizes the importance of co-operation and proactive action in the fight against crime,” says Petrus Coetzee, AfriForum’s District Coordinator for the East Rand.

“We cannot allow criminals to do as they please. Therefore, we will continue to expel criminals from our community through disciplined, legal and well-planned actions. We are very grateful that the AfriForum neighbourhood Watch in Alberton is growing from strength to strength. It is truly a sacrifice that is made and a decision that is made by volunteers to make their community safer for everyone who lives there,” says Louis van Aswegen, Leader of AfriForum’s Alberton neighbourhood watch.
