VEGA donates funds to Honeydew Community Policing Forum
VEGA Controls SA (Pty) Ltd, has donated funds to the Honeydew Community Policing Forum in recognition of it's service to the community. A cheque of R 50 000.00 was handed to Jon Rosenberg, the CPF's spokesperson. Group Director John Groom said, "They are our unsung heroes. They deliver a service to the public and as a business, we support their cause." He also thanked the attendees at the golf day for their generous contributions to a raffle which formed a part of the total sum.
The donation has been earmarked to assist in the operations of the Trauma Unit which has seen a decrease in funding but provides an essential free counselling service to victims of crime. Community Policing was created by the Police Act of 1995, and it is being used as a philosophy that guides police management styles and operational strategies, and emphasizes the establishment of police-community partnerships, with a problem solving approach responsive to the needs of the community.
A major objective of community policing is to establish an active partnership between police and the community through which crime, service delivery, and police-community relations can jointly be analysed, and appropriate solutions designed and implemented.
The CPF office runs purely on donations, they have Resident Associations, companies, and private individuals that donate on a monthly basis.
