Sinoville CPF in need of patrollers and controllers

Interested individuals are urged to send their applications to admin@scpfsector1.co.za.

The Sinoville CPF in the north of Pretoria has invited residents in the Sinoville policing precinct to join them.

The CPF, which works closely with SAPS, allows community members to actively take part in the fight against crime without prior experience or professional qualification.

According to Sinoville CPF spokesperson Lizette du Plooy, the CPF is there to encourage the community to report criminal activity and any suspicious behaviour.

“The more patrollers and controllers we have, the safer the community will be [and] the sooner we can prevent/put a stop to any undesirable and socially unacceptable activity.

“The CPF is here to improve visibility to deter criminal activity, and improve community involvement in crime-related issues,” said Du Plooy.

She said being a volunteer patroller requires adhering to the following principles:

– Accountability

– Professionalism

– Commitment

– Dedication

“Patrollers actively go out on patrol, and assist the community, SAPS and emergency services, when required.

“Controllers work with the patrollers and act as liaisons between patrollers, SAPS and emergency services, when required,” said Du Plooy.

Applicants must:

– Be a South African citizen over 18 years old

– Have a bar-coded Identity Document/Smart ID Card

– Not have a criminal record

– Live in Sinoville SAPS precinct

– Have a valid driver’s license and a car

– A national police clearance done

Successful applicants will be expected to accept and adhere to the patroller’s guidelines, code of conduct and the Sinoville’s CPF constitution.

“You will be contacted as soon as the SAPS clearance is done, after which you will be required to attend a mandatory introductory session.

“After the training, you will be introduced to the team and become part of the Sinoville CPF patroller network,” she said.

She said the CPF is looking forward to assisting the police in the lead-up to and on election day to keep the community safe through visible patrols.

Residents who are keen to join the Sinoville are urged to contact Lizette du Plooy on 083 987 8421 or send an email to admin@scpfsector1.co.za.
