Security Measures Must Improve in Schools

17 May 2013  

 

 The recent tragedy where a Cape Town teenager was shot dead while arriving at school shows a great need for security improvement in schools. IFP Spokesperson on Police, Mr Velaphi Ndlovu (MP) said, "Improving security measures in schools is essential and options can include the possibility of installing security cameras and increasing police visibility, especially in areas which have been identified as gangster war zones. In addition, liquor outlets which are next to the schools must be removed."

 

Ndlovu added, "Schools must increase their efforts if they want to provide a safe environment for the nations' children. Security measures must include an effective communication system between security personnel and school staff and nearby police stations. Parents must know that their children are safe when they attend school."
