Community crime activist and supporter of SAPS Berea, Nicky Burke, has said as a community member, the Berea CAD 2022 is important because it brings together the various law enforcement agencies, who police the area, with the communities.

She says this will allow residents to build a better understanding and relationship with the station commander and his team.

“It gives us the community the opportunity to understand the workings of the police and to become members of the Berea CPF. It also gives us the community an opportunity to get together and work closer with the police to eradicate crime within our area,”said Burke.
