Delft police station in slow motion - the public complains

Concerns have emerged around the efficiency of the Delft Police Stationin the eastern part of Cape Town. Geoff in Rooi Els called in on Breakfast with Kieno Kammies about his son’s hijacking that took place in Delft and he is not happy with the way the case was handled by the station:

He was forced by two guys to drive into Delft, he doesn’t quite know where on earth he was in Delft, and meanwhile they had taken his laptop and cell phone. They then forced him out of his car as they were trying to get his wallet out of his pocket. He then went to the Delft Police Station (charge office) to report this. It took them three hours to get the report and one of the officials said the case should be referred to Mfuleni because that’s where the incident occurred.

Kevin in Somerset West experienced a similar treatment from Delft Police Station after he was involved in an accident about a week ago.

About a week and half ago I was involved in fender bender. A lady drove into me while studying in her car. And I went to the Delft police station where it took me four hours and I eventually left and went to Eester river Police Station. They took down the statement and transferred it to Delft police station and till this day I don’t have a case number

Kieno Spoke to Delft Community Policing Forum (CPF) chairperson, Reggie Maart who said that these are the types of complains their office would like to deal with. He also mentioned that in the coming two weeks they’ll be launching their offices right in front of the Delft police station where they will be dealing with the unhappiness of clients about the service they receive from the Delft police station.

Maart urged members of the public not to stay with their complaints but to forward them to CPF or the Station Commanders.
