King Williams Town - Members from the Eastern Cape SAPS Corporate Communication Component started Tuesday with an awareness drive to assist Government in communicating the new regulations into workable solutions for the people that we serve.

"Criminal charges and fines as per the Disaster Management Act for non-compliance were also communicated."

The awareness campaign continued to East London Cluster's Taxi Rank, Oxford Main Street and several shopping centres where community members are in large numbers, Communication Personnel delivering the same message.
