joburgcityTimesLive reports that the City of Johannesburg on Wednesday inducted 1‚500 new Metro Police (JMPD) officers to “bolster” policing in the city.  

Speaking at the induction‚ executive mayor Herman Mashaba said the city had received 38‚600 applications when it was recruiting JMPD officers and added:  “You all here today are among the fortunate few the City could accommodate.  Though we are heartened by the vast number of applications received‚ we clearly have a massive task ahead of us in tackling unemployment.”  Mashaba said one of the city’s nine priorities was to ensure safer communities and that the addition of 1‚500 would alleviate pressure on the formerly overstretched JMPD.
