There's safety and security concerns around Kloof Street and the popular Long Street.
CapeTalk's Kieno Kammies speaks to deputy provincial police Commissioner Jeremy Veary about the safety concerns and what's been done to address these issues.
This follows the death of a man who was trying to defend two women from being mugged on Kloof Street on Saturday. The man was stabbed to death by the robber.
According to Veary, regular meetings are scheduled once a month between CPF and SAPS to look at different ways to ensure safety and security in the city centre.
I have regular meetings with all CPF's in the cluster. We share regular threads as they emerge and intensify and what to look after. It is usually a fruitful session which involves station commanders...— Jeremy Veary, Deputy provincial police Commissioner
Veary also spoke about the involvement of under world figures in the clubs on Long Street saying it is up to the club owners discretion to have these questionable people there.
This is done through symbiotic relationships with club owners. They allow some of this extortionist type of security companies to staff their doors.— Jeremy Veary, Deputy provincial police Commissioner
