What is a Community Police Forum (CPF)?
A Community Police Forum is a group of people from different communities and police representatives who meet to discuss safety problems in their communities. They aim at ensuring police accountability, transparency, and effectiveness in the community. CPFs are established in terms of section 19(1) of the S.A.P. S. Act, Act 68 of 1995. What are the functions of CPFs? • Promotion of accountability of the local police to the community, and cooperation of the community with the local police. • Monitoring the effectiveness and efficiency of the police serving the community. • Examination and advice on local policing priorities. • Evaluation of the provision of services such as: o Distribution of resources o The way complaints and charges are handled o Patrolling of residential and business areas • Keeping records, writing reports and making recommendations to the Station Commanders, the Provincial Commissioner and the MEC. • The CPF will make questions available regarding local policing matters, and allow enquiries when necessary.
MBF support the CPF initiative and wish to remind business owners that it is particularly important for them to be represented at the meeting and to be involved with community policing.
