Umbilo station commander, Colonel John Romer encourages neighbourhood watches to come together to form community forums in the different sectors under Umbilo policing area.

Romer said Umbilo has been divided into three sectors and will soon have sub forum elections for each sector to have a committee as directed by the Constitution.

“The committee should be formed by all the neighbourhood watches, car guards and all the people who can be the eyes and ears of the community. It will also include those community groups within the communities of each sector, security officers and anyone else who wishes to be involved in community work and to help eradicate criminal activity in the various area’s,” he said.

Romer said, “The aim is to unify the community by coming together and a lot more can and will be done if we do so.”
