We hope to have an online web form in the near future which will allow you to register your interest in assisting the Parkview CPF in any way. In the interim, please [This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.] us concerning any queries and offers of assistance.

Volunteering opportunities range from offering your services once a week for a few hours, to offering advice in your field of expertise, or even just baking a cake for your police station one a year.

Here are some suggestions:

CPF Substructures

The scope of areas where you can get involved at the police station extends beyond the executive of the CPF. You should ask them about the various affiliated structures that are linked to your CPF, and they should be able to tell you who to contact in your immediate area to get involved. Below are some of the structures in which you could get involved.

Trauma Counselling / Victim Support

This volunteer unit is run by members of the community with experience in trauma support.

Youth Desk

The Youth Desk is a great place for teens and school leavers who want to volunteer to make a difference in their community. The Parkview CPF does not currently have a youth desk, and would welcome assistance in initiating such a structure.

Sector Crime Forum

The Parkview precint is divided into four sectors, each with its own sector manager. Sector Crime Forums are the interface between the residents' associations within each sector, and the sector management. Parkview currently has no SCF structures, and instead runs a Community Safety Forum. However, the CPF would be happy to discuss the formation of SCFs if the community would like to introduce this structure.

Residents' Associations

Where areas have an active Residents' Association, they often have a Safety Subcommittee. This committee has functions similar to the Sector Crime Forum, but may also include wider issues around community safety.

Block watches / Neighbourhood watches / Street committees

Several communities have well-established neighbourhood watches that are run by members of the community. Some communities also participate in community patrols in conjunction with the SAPS. These structures provide a valuable link between the community, the CPF and the SAPS.

Administrative Assistance

Some of the areas in which you could help:

This list is not exhaustive, and you may be able to help in many other ways too.

Summary

Think about how you could assist with your talents, skills or passion in one or more of these areas:
