Resolution details

Meeting date: 13 June 2019

  • Chairperson stated that part of the recommendation is to relocate the radio to the Law Enforcement’s office in Dummer Road and wanted to know whether the radio will be manned 24/7.
 
  • Cllr Peck responded that he has spoken with the official Mr Samuel Simons of Law Enforcement who indicated that the radio will not be manned 24/7.  It should either be manned by neighbourhood watches who the Cllr thinks that they do not have the capacity do to it but that he has spoken with Helderberg Crime Watch who does have a control room that are manned 24/7 who originally it was requested three years ago to them manned the radio 24/7.  He suggested that the motion be amended to include the Helderberg Crime Watch to negotiate with them to see if the radio can be moved to their control room which could give them 100% coverage 24/7.
 
  • Flowing from this motion the Chairperson proposed that Law Enforcement engage in negotiations with Helderberg Crime Watch around hosting the radio at their premises because the Pigeon Club is not going to be staffed 24/7 as requested by this motion.
 
RESOLVED
 
  • That the Subcouncil inform Law Enforcement to engage in negotiations with Helderberg Crime Watch to request that radio be moved to their control room in order for the radio to be manned 24/7
 
  • That the item REMAINS on the MRA’s.
