UCSI NPC LOCKDOWN UPDATE

Dear UCSI Supporters and Community members
 
The UCSI continues to support SAPS, Law Enforcement and Security Service Providers. Our Operations team is working 24/7 to make sure we stay on top of things. Even with reduced traffic flow all over the country, the UCSI have been able to follow up and facilitate the apprehension of some perpetrators.
 
You will notice in the report that there are still gaps in the UCSI SNIPR Network. These gaps can only be “plugged” once enough Capex is available to do the installations, but more importantly more community members and business entities come on board with monthly contributions, to ensure the financial sustainability of our not-for-profit community project.
