A Community Police Forum (“CPF”) is a statutory body established in terms of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, the SAPS Interim Regulations, and the Civilian Secretariat for Police Service Act.

CPF Patrollers are volunteers from the community who agree to spend a certain number of hours in their cars, patrolling the streets as “eyes and ears” for SAPS. These volunteers need to have their fingerprints taken by SAPS, wear an identification card, adhere to a code of conduct and to all laws of the country.

They go on patrols by reporting on and off duty at SAPS. The patroller coordinator assists with logistics and SAPS requirements. Patrollers will wear reflective jackets and use two-way radios to communicate with SAPS. Patrollers are not law enforcement officials.


The Parkview CPF is building a team of patrollers and we need your help!
