First civic education course kicks off

02 Aug 2023 in Where We Govern

The City of Cape Town’s Safety and Security Directorate has started civic education this week for a new crop of learner law enforcement officers. 

The 78 officers started the three-day training before hitting the streets.

‘The aim of the training is to equip our officers to be more public service oriented and more than just enforcers of the law. This will make them responsible and accountable officers and citizens as it will sensitise them to an array of incidents in which they can respond in more empathetic and culturally sensitive ways,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security Alderman JP Smith.
