Joint initiative between SASA and Cape Town Metro

February 2011 Associations

Late last year SASA representatives including Western Cape regional director, Koos van Rooyen and regional secretary Dave Waywell, met with the representatives of the Cape Town Metro Traffic & Security, including Chris Moller.

“We had a fantastic turnout with 47 SASA Western Cape members showing their support of the initiative at the lunch,” said Van Rooyen.

Speakers were SIA CEO, Steve Conradie and SASA national president Jenny Reid. “Steve spoke about the new PSIRA board and the way the security industry is now interacting with them going forward. He also explained the workings of the new database, which we have waited an eternity for. There were many questions but the overall mood was upbeat and everybody agreed this was the way to go,” Van Rooyen said.

“Jenny elaborated on her speech at the conference about effective ways to check on the background of employees. Once again this was a very interesting talk and resulted in a number of questions,” he added.

“I spoke about our new partnership with Cape Town traffic management/law enforcement and the way we will integrate one radio network to all security companies to ensure a safer Cape Town. We are still in the infancy of the project but all companies have agreed that they would like to be part of the project and we will keep members updated as we proceed.”
