Policewomen create crime awareness at Glebelands Hostel

Umlazi SAPS station commander, Brig Bongi Ntuli and policewomen from eThekwini Outer South Cluster, Safer Cities and Community Forums, hand out pamphlets on domestic violence and illegal firearms in Glebelands.

Policewomen of the eThekwini Outer South Cluster gathered in Glebelands to create crime awareness on domestic violence and illegal firearms to end their women’s month campaign.

Officers from Amanzimtoti, Bhekithemba, Kwamakhuta, Folweni, Isipingo, Umbumbulu, Umkomaas and Umlazi SAPS, together with members of Life Line, Umlazi Women Community Forum, Amanzimtoti Community Forum and Safer City volunteers, distributed pamphlets on domestic violence and illegal firearms.

Station commander of Umlazi SAPS, Brig Bongi Ntuli, led the crime awareness drive by handing out pamphlets herself to ensure that the message was delivered. Over 12 police vehicles were driven by police women who  patrolled the streets around Glebelands, showing the high visibility and unity in fighting crime in the area.

The community responded positively to the ladies and comfortably took the pamphlets. The operation was a great success in bringing police visibility and crime awareness to Glebelands. Residents were also encouraged to use the Crime Stop number 086-001-0111 if they wish to report crime and remain anonymous.

Brig Ntuli said,“We will continue to go door to door and meet our Glebelands residents. We want to ensure that our Glebelands residents know that the police are there for them and still care. I am committed to availing myself personally to the Glebelands community, to ensure peace and safety.”

eThekwini Outer South acting cluster commander, Brig Maxwell Mgobhozi, said she was happy to see the police make an extra effort to go door to door to meet the residents of Glebelands.

“This is a way to close the gap between the police and community. It is important for the community and police to be working together to bring peace and safety. I am supportive of the community and policing drives to promote better relations and to work together in bringing safety and peace within Glebelands,” said Brig Mgobhozi.
