The Sandton CPF operates in four Sectors that make up the 84 square kilometres of the Sandton policing precinct and is run by volunteers who want to give back and make a positive difference to their communities.

The Sandton CPF is committed to serving the Sandton community through:

  • The Sandton CPF Guardians, a community-focused programme that forms part of the Sandton CPF. The Sandton CPF Guardians has an Incident Management Unit and a Neighbourhood Watch Patrollers Unit.
  • The Sandton CPF Youth Desk, which was officially launched on 16 June 2019, is an outreach programme that relies on volunteers aged 18-25 to help address social issues that are related to or cause crime.  The Youth Desk is a SAPS/Community partnership and Sandton SAPS Warrant Officer Cynthia Segoa (Social Crime Prevention Coordinator) works closely with the committee to develop a programme of activities and events, which includes, for example, arranging talks at schools about drug and alcohol abuse, becoming involved in criminal activities and how young people can tackle the many challenges facing them in South Africa.
  • Monthly community meetings, together with SAPS and JMPD Sector Commanders, Ward Councillors and security companies that operate in each area. These sessions are focused on information sharing and priority crime updates, as well as other safety, security and other relevant issues affecting Sandton. Feedback is provided from  SAPS and JMPD Sector Commanders on incidents, suspicious vehicles and suspects. Crime trends and hot spots are identified and representatives of Residents Associations are tasked to feed this information back to their communities. All are welcome to attend the community  meetings.
  • Planning sessions with SAPS, JMPD and security companies, where crime hot spots are identifed and cooperative crime fighting initiatives are scheduled.
  • Communicating crime trends, safety and security advice and relevant updates to the community via newsletters, media releases, WhatsApp groups, Facebook and the Sandton CPF website.
  • Working together with the JMPD on by-law enforcement issues. By-law enforcement is an critical and essential component of community policing. Traffic violations; squatters, vagrants and illegal activities in the green belt; illegal dumping; iIllegal construction of shacks; non-documented persons; illegal billboards; and illegal employment practices are just some of the by-law infringement issues that are addressed.
  • Strong cooperation and partnerships with SAPS, JMPD, City Parks, CoJ and Gauteng Province, Ward Councillors, Residents Associations, road closures, businesses, churches and other organisations in Sandton.
