The State of Community Police Forums and Their Challenges

The State of Community Police Forums and Their Challenges

The aim of this research was to examine the state of Community Police Forums (CPFs) around Gauteng, how they were functioning and if they were experiencing any problems. Also, it attempts to ascertain whether those interviewed thought that CPFs have enduring value. The original idea for the paper stemmed from workshops which were conducted for women's organizations on issues such as getting representation on the local CPF and for the CPFs themselves on community policing and their powers and functions.
