The Linden CPF (Community Police Forum) is the link between the community and the South African Police Service. Community Policing is a philosophy aimed at achieving more effective crime control; improved police services through proactive partnerships and programs with communities. In short, Community Policing is a partnership between the police and the Community to solve safety problems in your area.
We meet once a week as per the calendar events below.
We publish 24 hour crime reports from Linden SAPS per sector daily here.
We live feed URGENT CRIME AND SAFETY WARNINGS to you here. So that if there is a robbery or hijacking close by you can secure yourself and your family in time. You are also at all times informed about "lookouts", cars involved in crime and suspicious activity.
The LINDEN CPF'S GOAL IS NOT TO DISPLACE CRIME BUT TO ACTIVELY FIGHT CRIME. The more engaged the community the lower the crime levels. HELP US MOBILIZE ALL THE EYES IN YOUR AREA TO MAKE THE LINDEN PRECINCT A TRULY SAFE PLACE TO LIVE.
Join your Residents Association, engage your Security Companies and train your staff (domestics and gardeners) to be very ALERT.
WHAT IS (CPF) COMMUNITY POLICE FORUM?
Community Policing Forum is
a platform where community members, organizations ,
Business, Residents Associations,other
relevant stakeholders and the police meet to discuss
local crime prevention initiatives.
In order for Community Policing to be achievable, South Africa has in its Constitution Act 108 of 1996 entrenched the establishment of Community Police Forums (CPF’s). This has been further supported by the South African Police Services (SAPS) Act 68 of 1995 that mandates all station commissioners to establish these forums at station level.
