Attention: Editors and Reporters

The South African Human Rights Commission’s North West provincial office has noted through its monitoring work, the challenge of police visibility in Dr Ruth Segomotsi Mompati and Ngaka Modiri Districts. On further enquiry, the Commission was informed that some of the factors that contribute to the challenge of police visibility include the lack of human and material resources in the police stations servicing these areas.

The intervention is aimed at assessing the extent of the challenges and their impact on the affected communities. The intervention will also provide an opportunity for stakeholders to explore solutions to the identified challenges.

The initiative will be in the form of site inspections on 25 & 26 January 2023 followed by a dialogue with relevant stakeholders on 27 January 2023. The dialogue is scheduled to be held as follows:
