By accepting the invitation and establishing a Community Policing Forum, the community declares this partnership with SAPS and other relevant role players, accepting that they are now effectively taking “charge” of their suburb / township / area / sector, to combat crime and ensure a safe environment for all. 
– Lt Col (Ret) Philip Malherbe

Objectives can be achieved by:

* Preventative patrols;

* Sector policing (also called neighbourhood policing);

* High-density policing – which should be :
– conducted pro-actively, vigorously and fairly;
– based on clear instructions from police commanders to patrollers;
– planned based on the outcome of crime analyses;
– focused on specific problems within any area;
– implemented based on specific frames;
– developed in collaboration with other relevant role-players;

Purpose of a patroller:

–  Send a clear message to criminals that you don’t tolerate crime in your sector;
–  Maintain high visibility in your sector;
–  Build a reputation as a trustworthy role-player;
–  Promote a favourable and trusting image amongst community and other stakeholders;
–  Be a competent witness;

  • I woke up during the night with rain falling on the roof and a sense of pride fills me. Proud to be part of this community of Henley, and of the greater Midvaal. - HCPF Chairman - Marcel Esterhuysen
