Col Ngoepe addressed the local media in the boardroom at the Lephalale Police Station about what role they could play in assisting with police investigations. He emphasized that the SAPS policy is very clear about the fact that they do not differentiate between local media and national media. “As a department, we need you more than you need us. The reason for this is that we have all the resources, but we need you to get through to the community. The community will not know what the situation around town is if it wasn’t for the media,” he said.

Some of the media spokespersons of the various police stations in Lephalale Cluster and other role players were also present.
