With just a few weeks under the belt in his new role as Director of Law Enforcement in the City of Cape Town, Robbie Roberts sat down in studio with CapeTalk presenter Kieno Kammies to discuss his latest appointment.
Roberts says that he will use his 32 years of policing experience to head up safety in the City, primarily directing local metro police, law enforcement and traffic management services.
He says that the main concern for the policing unit in the Western Cape is gangsterism and crime on the N2 highway.
Roberts responded to questions, concerns and compliments from CapeTalk listeners.
It is my responsibility to serve the local public and ensure that they experience professional service in the metropole. It is also my duty to ensure that we are accountable and attend to the problems related to crime, corruption, traffic and the bylaws.— Robbie Roberts, Director of Law Enforcement in the City of Cape Town
Since his appointment to the directorate, Roberts has been spotted taking a hands-on approach; wearing a reflective gear and leading traffic at several intersections.
