A walk against crime in Kempton Park CBD occurred last week, with members of the Kempton Park SAPS actively participating.
This march witnessed the presence of station management, the CPF, POWA, KETA, Gauteng traffic wardens, the Gauteng Traffic Police, patrons, and residents of Kempton Park.
The primary objective of this campaign was to initiate dialogue with liquor outlet owners and reinforce the provisions of the Liquor Act 59 of 2003. This legislation affirms the right to a safe and responsible drinking environment while empowering venues and law enforcement to remove and ban patrons who jeopardise such environments, as highlighted by Kempton Park SAPS spokesperson Sergeant Dipuo Ditshego.
Sergeant Ditshego informed that 500 pamphlets were disseminated to the community to raise awareness about the repercussions of alcohol consumption and the crimes associated with it.
Liquor outlet proprietors were also encouraged to collaborate with the police to combat crime in Kempton Park effectively.
