AAA Response – A conflict between neighbours
We recently received an emergency activation from a member requesting SAPS intervention.
He reported that there was a large conflict between families in a particular street in the Upper Highway area of Kwazulu Natal and that the families were coming to blows.
We contacted the nearest SAPS station as well as dispatching nearby neighbourhood watch street patrollers to the location.
Unfortunately the families refused any assistance from SAPS and neighbourhood watch patrollers and nothing more could be done since no blatant crime had been committed.
*Dispatcher files are reports detailing the experience of the dispatcher as they deal with emergencies and so are recorded after the fact.
