This is a report on the SAPS Area Johannesburg Community Policing Board Workshop, which occurred on 12 April 2003. The key objective of this workshop was to work towards creating synergy between the vision of the South African Police Services (SAPS) Johannesburg Area Commissioner and the initiatives of the Johannesburg Area Community Policing Forums (CPFs). The aim of this report is to provide SAPS commanders and CPF representatives with a document that captures most of the issues raised at the workshop.
