The George Municipality’s Law Enforcement officers have completed a Peace Officer and Warden Training course from 3 to 29 June 2024. All participants were found competent.

This course was presented by the City of Cape Town’s Metro Police Services Training & Development Programme to seventeen (17) Community Safety staff members, including land invasion and law enforcement officers.

According to Lee-Ann Meiring, the Senior Manager for Community Safety in the George Municipality, this training will allow the Municipality to appoint more Peace Officers with the authority to enforce by-laws. “The training is certified and covers three main areas: Professional Conduct, Peace Officer & Warden Training, and Point Duty. At the end of the course, the trainees will be able to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the role and functions of a peace officer and traffic warden,” said Meiring.
