Welcome to the #SaferWC Initiative
What will be the benefits of a devolved Western Cape?
We believe that by devolving power within the SAPS, we can create a safer, more secure environment for everyone in the Western Cape. With a focus on the benefits of devolution, we aim to bring about a brighter future for the region, one where communities can feel safe and secure.
- Increased accountability
- Better resource management
- Improving community-police relations
- Provides local communities with a greater voice in the management of public safety
- Ensuring that the needs and concerns of the people are heard and addressed
The use of universities and private companies can also play a role in supporting the devolution of safety and protection responsibilities. For example, one potential solution to the backlog in forensic services is partnering with universities or outsourcing some DNA analysis.
