Camps Bay Community Policing Forum

CBCPF logo

The CBCPF is the only official constituted interface between South African Police Services (SAPS) and the general community for the purposes of dealing with all crime & policing matters for the Camps Bay Policing precinct – covering the areas of Oudekraal, Bakoven, Brighton Estate, Rontree, Glen and Clifton – i.e. from just this side of Llandudno through to the Clifton/Bantry Bay border & Top of Kloofnek.

Every SA police station precinct is tasked with having an active, registered Community Police Forum (CPF)

  • SAPS Act 68 of 1995 – CPF’s legally mandated to be civilian oversight with a view to improving policing & establishing collaborative relationship with SAPS
  • Sect. 206 of SA Constitution
  • Sect. 17(2)b(iii) of Civilian Secretariat for Police Services Act #2 of 2011

The Camps Bay CPF (CBCPF) is officially registered with both SAPS and the Department of Community Safety (DoCS)

The CBCPF is responsible for managing & ensuring:

  • Effective Policing – oversight to SAPS and other Law Enforcement entities
  • Communication & Cooperation between the above bodies & the Community
  • Anti crime and safety initiatives / projects / operations – e.g. Camps Bay Watch (CBW), as well as adhoc crime operations
  • Conflict resolution, investigation & resolving issues between the above parties.
  • Assisting the SAPS with investigations and community-based/local intelligence information.

The CBCPF is therefore very involved in all aspects of policing as well as safety & security, however it is Not meant as an Emergency destination point.
