TakeNote: Ministerial six-point plan

Public violence can lead to your arrest.

The Eldorado Park SAPS would like to make people aware of the ministerial six-point plan as well as the enforcement of the Criminal Matters Amendment (CMA) Act 18 of 2015.

The ministerial six-point plan is a plan that promotes and protects the rights of women, children, and vulnerable groups.

  • Point One: All victims should be treated with respect, dignity and interviewed by trained police officials in a victim-sensitive manner.
  • Point Two: Victims should be assisted at the Victim Friendly Room (VFR) or an alternative room where the statement will be taken in private at the police station or other locations providing victim support services.
  • Point Three: Victims will be referred or taken for medical examination by the healthcare professional to obtain medical evidence and complete a medical report.
  • Point Four: The investigation should be conducted by the Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences Investigation Unit or detective with relevant training.
  • Point Five: The families and victims of sexual offences, femicide and infanticide should be referred to the victim support services that are available within the precinct for legal, medical, social and psychological help.
  • Point Six: Victims should be proactively provided with feedback on the progress of their cases on a continuous basis.

New Act to be enforced to prevent public violence.

Furthermore, the Act that will be enforced in this year will educate civilians on the consequences of their actions. This Act creates a new offense relating to essential infrastructure.

It regulates bail in respect of essential infrastructure-related offenses and it regulates minimum sentences in the case of essential infrastructure-related offenses.

It also states that members are required to use this Act and the guidelines as contained in IB 03/01/2018 and the detailed documentation on how to capture the offense in CAS as well as important information on what aspects to include in the statement, is filed in the IB file.

Eldorado Park experiences lots of cases of cable theft, infrastructure theft, etc. Please use the Act for registering the offense on CAS and to complete statements.

14 suspects, three females and 11 males, were arrested on Friday, January 19 at Devland for public violence where they closed the roads and burnt tyres.

The suspects appeared in court on Monday, January 22. Brigadier Pieter Van Dyk said, “The CMA Act will now be enforced Eldorado Park because no recklessness is going to be tolerated.”

Van Dyk continued, “Community involvement is of utmost importance as information received led to most of the arrests for drugs in the last few weeks.

“We need to rebuild the trust of the police in the community. Any person can report information of corruption, the information will stay confidential.

“There is also a cluster task team where information is given to where we need to act immediately. We thank the community for their support; together we can clean the streets and take back Eldorado Park.

“The Community Policing Forum, patrollers, Local Drug Action Committee and other NGOs will play a major role to ensure a crime-free environment.”
