The Community Policing Forums (CPF) in Mitchells Plain, Lentegeur, Phillips, Strandfontein, Athlone, Steenberg, Lansdowne and Grassy Park are due to meet today at Athlone police station, to discuss the carnage.
This comes in the wake of the murder of a police officer who was fatally wounded when suspects opened fire at a police vehicle in Lavender Hill, on Monday night.
Police spokesperson André Traut said two officers of the Steenberg crime-prevention unit approached five suspects in Lavender Hill.
“The suspects opened fire on the police vehicle in Grindel Crescent, and wounded the driver, a 34-year-old sergeant. The mortally wounded policeman was taken to hospital where he later died. His partner, a constable, escaped unharmed.
