The Community Police Forum (CPF) consists of organisations and institutions such as schools, ratepayers associations, civic organisations, businesses and religious institutions, working in partnership with the local police. The purpose of the Cape Town CPF is to create and maintain a safe and secure environment for citizens living and working within the Cape Town City Bowl’s precinct.


The CPF develops yearly community safety plans, which identify priorities and needs for the precinct. These priorities and needs are set by the community, through the CPF, and form part of the Cape Town police station's operational plan.


The Cape Town CPF has a number of portfolio’s, such as crime prevention operations, Victim Support through the Victim Empowerment Program (VEP) and Social Development.


The Cape Town CPF believes in a multi-pronged approach when dealing with safety, and work closely together with numerous role players in order to obtain the best possible outcome!
