Metro police project in Nelson Mandela Bay making headway

CAPE TOWN - The Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality says it's made some headway in establishing a Metro Police service, which has been more than five years in the making.

A chief has already been appointed, but to date there's still no Metro Police department in place.

Months before the 2010 Soccer World Cup, Nelson Mandela Bay officials entrusted a project team with establishing a plan to implement a Metro Police service.

The municipality announced the plan had reached what it called "an important stage" and that phase one of the project had been completed.

Three years later, the plan was declared a special project of the executive mayor, but now more than two years later since that deployment, there's still no Metro Police in place and a Metro Police Chief with no staff to lead.
