Police

Your first port of call for a police emergency should always be 10111. If you call 10111 from a landline they can identify the address that you are calling from, so if possible, rather call from a landline than from a cell phone, as it will save valuable time explaining where you are. Please note that the calls are directed to a regional centre, so if you are in Cape Town and want to call 10111 to attend to something in Johannesburg you will be routed to a Cape Town call centre which may waste valuable time. The 10111 call centre has direct digital radio links to all vehicles and can identify the closest available vehicle to you via their GPS tracking system.

The Gauteng Provincial Commissioner has introduced more visible policing through dedicated sector patrols. In the Parkview Precinct, this means that you can call one of your sector’s two dedicated vehicles directly via their cell phone if required. While there have been some operational difficulties with these numbers in the past, the CPF is working hard to resolve these issues together with station management.

Calling the station itself should always be your third choice, but keep all numbers on your speed dial.

Metro Police

The JMPD are responsible for the enforcement of traffic laws and bylaws in Johannesburg. They have various units that deal with these specific issues, as well as a regional unit that operates in our precinct. Parkview falls under Region B. The BMU (Bylaws Management Unit) is divided into 3 sections: Health, City Waste and Normal Bylaws. All these units can be reached through the same number (see below). To get a pointsman when a traffic light is out of order, call 011 37 55 911. Also report the problem to Joburg connect by calling 0860 Joburg (0860 562874) or 011 375 5555 so that the problem can be fixed as soon as possible.

Utilities

For most utility issues, phone Joburg Connect on 0860 Joburg (0860 562874) or 011 375 5555 which is the primary number. Remember to ensure that you get a reference number! This is a 24 hour number, and you may stand a better chance of getting through quickly by calling very early in the morning or very late at night. Note that if you are registered, you can also log faults with Joburg e-Services online.

Note that City Power would appreciate a call to report any vehicles working on cables in your area, whether they appear to be legitimate of not. It seems that at least some of the cable thefts are being conducted by contractors. City Power will be able to match the presence of a vehicle with a job card, and if there is no job card issued for that area, they will dispatch their security provider to investigate. Please use one of the cable theft numbers below.
