The shooting of a police officer marks the most recent deadly incident in Delft, which has plagued by violence in recent months.

Neighbourhood Watch groups in Delft say they're reluctant to continue local street patrols without police escorts.

The area is one of ten precincts in which SANDF troops are being deployed in a bid to tackle gang-related violence and crime.

On Sunday a Delft police officer was fatally shot and two of his colleagues injured in a shoot out.

When he was approached by the officers he only stopped shooting because he ran out of bullets.

Pastor Charles George, Chairperson - Delft Community Policing Forum

The sad thing is that the mindset of these criminals is so evil at the moment...

Pastor Charles George, Chairperson - Delft Community Policing Forum

A suspect is due to appear in connection with the shooting this week.

Chair of the Delft Community Policing Forum, Pastor Charles George says troubled communities like Delft are in danger of being used as pawns by politicians.

Government have the responsibility to ensure that they create the type of environment where kids in townships can flourish, families can prosper and kids can grow.

Pastor Charles George, Chairperson - Delft Community Policing Forum

We're dealing with real people with real issues and we need a real solution.

Pastor Charles George, Chairperson - Delft Community Policing Forum

The dream that we had of a new South Africa has become a nightmare.
