CAPE TOWN - The Western Cape Community Safety Department says the policing needs and priorities consultation process will take flight close to the end of this month.

The aim of these meetings is to reinforce the relationship between police and residents in communities across the province.

Western Cape Community Safety MEC Dan Plato says during this process he will identify policing needs and priorities from the community's perspective.

This is the second such process that provincial government has embarked on thus far.

Plato adds he will try to establish from residents whether there were any improvements regarding policing since his last visit to the community.

The process will start in Worcester on 26 July and will end in Nyanga during the second week of December.
