The safety of Tshwane residents is a priority for the City. A new Tshwane Metro Police Department (TMPD) satellite station was set up in the inner city to safeguard commuters, shoppers and businesses in the Pretoria CBD area.
The Pretoria CBD is affected by ongoing cases of criminality where residents are confronted on a daily basis with crimes such as pickpocketing, mugging and business robberies.
The new satellite station will improve the TMPD's response time to road safety and crime problems in the CBD area. The station will operate on a 24-hour shift basis to adequately perform its core TMPD functions, which include by-law enforcement, road policing and crime prevention.
