Security Master Plan for 2010

Keeping it brief

More than 30 000 police officers are being recruited and trained specifically for the 2010 FIFA World Cup. This is part of South Africa’s Security Master Plan for 2010. To gain experience of monitoring security during soccer games, the new police officers will start doing duty at Premier Soccer League matches this year and in 2009. 

Another feature of the 2010 safety and security plan is that teams of police officers will be divided into sections. Different teams will focus on different areas like the FIFA headquarters, hotels, stadiums, fan parks, restaurants and tourist destinations. Special courts will also be available 24 hours a day and seven days a week to ensure access to justice during the tournament.

Eastern Cape

The Victim’s Charter, which aims to help victims of crime to understand and use their rights, was unveiled in Port Elizabeth in December last year. It will ensure that victims’ needs are placed first when cases are investigated and is part of government’s commitment to build a culture of human rights. The Charter has already led to the setting up of rape-care centres, which ensure that rape victims are treated with dignity.

A provincial AIDS Council was opened in Mpumalanga in December last year as part of government’s Strategic Plan for HIV and AIDS and STIs (sexually transmitted infections) for 2007-2011. Provincial AIDS councils will help the South African National AIDS Council to achieve its goals. These include reducing new HIV and AIDS infections by 50 per cent and reducing the impact of the disease on individuals, families and communities.
