CPF AGM and Elections
As per the recommendations received from the Department of Community Safety and the Provincial CPF Board, notice is hereby issued that the AGM and elections of the Linden CPF that was scheduled for Tuesday 26 July 2022 have been moved to September 6.
This is to allow for the Linden CPF elections to align with the recently signed Gauteng Province Community Police Board (GPCB) Constitution.
Notices will be issued on public platforms. These directives are in line with the Gauteng Provincial CPF Constitution, 2022. We look forward to your participation in the process.
A series of public engagements will take place in each sector to introduce the existing CPF Sector Sub Forum Exco members to the community and to allow residents, street groups, complexes, road closures and RA’s that have not been involved or lost contact with the CPF to become involved.
Join us to find out more about what crime looks like in your area and meet the SAPS Sector Managers who are responsible for each of the sectors and get all the contact details you need.
Help Us to Help You
One of our duties as Linden CPF, is to raise funds to assist SAPS and our community with projects that help create a better and safer environment for everyone in our community.
As part of our ongoing efforts to build and strengthen TEAM LINDEN it would be greatly appreciated if you could come on board and join us as TEAM LINDEN contributor in the form of a financial donation towards the running of the CPF and its sub forums such as the Victim Support Unit.
The Linden Community Policing Forum Victim Support Unit is the beating heart of Linden police.
The prevalence of crime in our country has increased over the years, leaving many unhappy victims. Yet good samaritans have dedicated their time and resources to offer assistance to victims of crime.
The unit, which works in conjunction with the forum and police officers, has the specific role of being present at a crime scene to assist the victims with trauma and counseling.
Volunteers explain to the victims what they can expect over the next few hours after a crime has happened. Additionally, the unit assists in calling family members and helping with necessary tasks and provides professional counselling.
This will only be possible with financial donations from our community and businesses in the precinct.
All donations will be recorded in the donations register.
We would like to remind the community that our bank accounts are fully audited, and records are available.
