City trains neighbourhood ambassadors to foster a culture of vigilance and improve safety <p>​The Grade EDC PSIRA security training covers a range of topics, which includes communication skills, conflict resolution, and leadership skills which will equip these community members with the necessary skills to become more effective in their role as community ambassadors; neighbourhood watch members, or volunteers dedicated to the cause of community improvement.</p><p><img src="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Images%202/MURP%20training%20grad.JPG" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:500px;" /><br></p><div>‘Today we recognised these community representatives who committed themselves to completing the PSIRA Training. These skills will take our ambassadors to another level of effectiveness and organisation. Our communities need eager and committed individuals who are passionate about contributing to the safety of their areas. This is an initiative from our Mayoral Urban Regeneration Programme (MURP) teams at the City who are fostering healthy and active relationships on a local level to sustainably manage our urban precincts across Cape Town. We will be offering more training opportunities to other community ambassadors in nodes across the City. I think this training will encourage active community involvement in the designated MURP areas, helping us maintain momentum in managing our urban precincts,’ said the City’s Deputy Mayor and Mayoral Committee Member for Spatial Planning and Environment, Alderman Eddie Andrews.<br></div><div><br></div><div>The training focused on public facilities and open spaces in MURP-designated areas. The intention is to create a more secure and resilient community environment by fostering a culture of vigilance and proactive safety measures. </div><div><br></div><div>The following community ambassadors and neighbourhood watch members completed the training:</div><div><br></div><div>Factreton</div><div>•<span style="white-space:pre;"> </span>JC Mac Donald</div><div>•<span style="white-space:pre;"> </span>Belasco Delily</div><div>•<span style="white-space:pre;"> </span>Moegamat Isaacs</div><div>•<span style="white-space:pre;"> </span>Sean Smith </div><div><br></div><div>Langa</div><div>•<span style="white-space:pre;"> </span>Ayanda Stuurman </div><div>•<span style="white-space:pre;"> </span>Mcebisi Ntshuntshe</div><div>•<span style="white-space:pre;"> </span>Shumbuzo Moya </div><div>•<span style="white-space:pre;"> </span>Linda Mzomba </div><div>•<span style="white-space:pre;"> </span>Vuyisile Malopa </div><div>•<span style="white-space:pre;"> </span>Sithembiso Pawuli</div><div><br></div><div>Kensington</div><div>•<span style="white-space:pre;"> </span>Annabelle Jaftha</div><div>•<span style="white-space:pre;"> </span>Bradley Faure</div><div><br></div><div><br></div><div>End<br></div>2024-02-22T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891dGP0|#5c31cae4-2683-4921-9ed8-73fd864bb2eb;L0|#05c31cae4-2683-4921-9ed8-73fd864bb2eb|neighbourhood watch association;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GP0|#282872ae-35e1-439f-97ba-12ac7e2b10d4;L0|#0282872ae-35e1-439f-97ba-12ac7e2b10d4|neighbourhood watch;GP0|#e1a5b1a6-9b2b-4790-96ce-f3405c541ea3;L0|#0e1a5b1a6-9b2b-4790-96ce-f3405c541ea3|community;GP0|#550cea01-5fec-45fb-8509-f49cfc36c0e0;L0|#0550cea01-5fec-45fb-8509-f49cfc36c0e0|Safety10
