Weekly report and reminder (Mon 2010/07/12)

Hi All, What a chilly winters morning it is on the highveld. Beautiful sunshine twisted with a bitterly cold wind – typical Jozi-like weather. The wind is not quite as twisted as the minds of the criminals that prey on the trusting and unsuspecting members of our suburbs. I sent out the warning on Thursday […]


Hi All, There are impersonators working in our area. They ransacked a house in Orange Grove Yesterday!!

Weekly report and reminder (Mon 2010/07/05)

Hi All, The weather must be mirroring my feelings on the dubious circumstances through which our African brothers from Ghana were knocked out of the World Cup by Uruguay.

NCPF Weekly report & reminder (31 May. 10)

The SAPS and CPF’s around the country often use acronyms or words that the person on the street might not understand.  Each week I shall define a term to enhance, not only my, but all of your understanding of policing terms. Trio Crimes – this term is used to describe three crimes that have been […]
