The past few months have highlighted the significant supplementary security role our local community policing forums (CPFs) play in our communities.
Together with police representatives, a CPF is a committee of people from a group of neighbouring communities who meet regularly to address security problems in their areas.
A CPF aims to:
- Ensure police address the community’s primary security needs.
- Enhance the quality of information available to the police to develop a proactive, solutions-driven approach to security issues
- Provide a visible and accessible policing presence
- Enhance the public’s confidence in the police while deterring criminals
Riverhorse Valley falls within two CPF areas. For Newlands East, please contact Thomas Justa (072 184 1403) and for Greenwood Park please contact Rajeev Jaynath (082 494 2937).
