Sector Policing was introduced into the Bedfordview area by the SAPS and the BCPF as the Bedfordview SAPS serves an extensive area of Ekurhuleni i.e. from Eastgate to Elandsfontein.

The RAG area falls under Sector 2 : Area from Van Buuren Road – RAG area – Douglas Road - St Benedicts School – Riley Road - Wilbart

The Aim of creating sectors:
  • To form 3 sectors within the area covered by the Bedfordview Police Station whereby each sector will have 2 dedicated police vehicles with cell phones 24/7 patrolling the Sector 2 area.
  • Residents needing the police, are able to call one of  the SAPS vehicles dedicated to their Sector. There is no need to call the Bedfordview Police Station.

For any queries, please phone the RAG OFFICE on 011 455 4120

How to catch corrupt cops


When those assigned to protect and care become those one needs protection from, where does one turn? Make sure that you have registered on www.eblockwatch.co.za . Test out the number after you have registered to hear how to record.
 

Pioneer of Bryanston-based eblockwatch André Snyman felt the answer was a call away. Police the police, a campaign started by eblockwatch, helps community members with empowerment in the face of corruption.  “This initiative was set up to track criminal activity. Through community participation Police the police can help stop corruption in the police force,” said Snyman. “Our aim is to discourage cops from corruption and to stop bribery.”  About 77 000 members have registered on the eblockwatch site so far.



“We want to mobilise South Africans to unite and help solve this problem. There was a time when you warned your loved ones about hijackings and criminals, now you tell them to watch out for the cops.”
When abuse of power occurs members can call 082-236-0003 and record conversations that go to the eblockwatch server. During the recording, the phone should be well placed so that as much detail as possible is recorded.  “Ask for the officer’s name and badge number, mention the number of police officers and pinpoint your location,” said Snyman.
 

Incidents of this nature need to be followed up with a visit to the local police station. Captain Kym Cloete of the Sandton police said, “If you’ve been confronted by corrupt officers you need to send a written complaint, so that we can institute departmental steps to have those officers removed.”  She advised that it was important to give full details of the officer and of the incident.   “You can either open a criminal case at the station or institute a departmental investigation by e-mailing the brigadier on billingsap@saps.org.za
