Nelson Mandela Bay mayor Athol Trollip has announced the appointment of Yolanda Faro as the Bay’s new Metro Police Chief.
She will take up her post on December 1 2016.
Trollip said in a statement they looked forward to welcoming Faro to the institution, where her leadership would undoubtedly take the Safety and Security operations to brand new heights.
Faro working in collaboration with the South African Police Service (SAPS), will ensure that the NMB Metro Police Service conducts intervention operations on an ongoing basis in the interest of turning Nelson Mandela Bay into a safe city.
“After years of uncertainty and sub-standard management, the Metro Police Service is now under world-class leadership, backed by years of exceptional experience,” Trollip said.
Faro has a Bachelor of Technology in Policing, a National Diploma in Policing and 15 years of safety and security experience, having most recently held the position of Acting Metro Police Chief in the City of Cape Town.
