A meeting will be held at the Police Station on Friday to address the growing tension between two of the gangs in town. According to the media liaison officer of the Police, WO Petra Els there is concern that gang violence can again rear its ugly head in the town. “We are taking a pro active approach and want to stop the trouble before it starts”, said Els. “All the relevant role players including community leaders have been invited to attend”.
The Jeffreys Bay Police have also requested that the public take note that the J’Bay Trauma Center is a standalone entity and not associated with “On Eagles Wings”, a private ministry. Captain Botes of the SAPS has recently been voted in a chairperson of the Trauma Center, which she will manage in her private capacity.
