Bedfordview Community Police Forum

The Bedfordview Community Police Forum (BCPF) was established 10 years ago in the Meadowdale area and now covers Bedfordview, St. Andrews, Essexwold, Morninghill, Senderwood as well as Meadowdale, Klopperpark and Elandsfontein.

The success of the Bedfordview Community Policing Forum lies in their strong partnership with the Police, the local businesses and community in the area. Their primary aim is to raise sponsorship to provide support and back up services to assist the police in decreasing crime and increasing the free flow of information between key players.

The forum is a non-profit Section 21 company, a financially transparent audited concern funded by local businesses and the public.

The BCPF host a monthly operational meeting, where members of the CPF, SAPS, businesses, security companies and members of the community attend. Updates are given as to what the CPF are doing, police statistics and any issue or concern that needs to be raised.

The Bedfordview CPF has its own office at the Bedfordview police station at 60 van Buuren Rd. This proximity ensures that communication between the SAPS and community is on-going and transparent at all times.

Victim Support Group

With the help of volunteers, the BCPF offer the community free counseling sessions should they have been a victim of crime or domestic violence. We are extremely fortunate to host one of the most successful teams in Gauteng. The Victim Support is also proud to have a newly formed support group in Elandsfontein. This well qualified team does this work pro bono.

Domestic Workers Forum

The DWF is an initiative which has been successfully launched all over Johannesburg. The forum provides an environment where the domestic workers and gardeners meet on a monthly basis to be educated about crime. They are encouraged to participate and are made aware of how vital they are in the fight against crime. The domestics have loads of fun and laughter, while developing sound relationships with their peers, neighbours, community and the police.

They will also take these lessons learnt to their homes, families and friends which will educate more and more people in crime prevention. A key part of this initiative is that the senior management of the police attend the forum, and directly liaise with the grapevine of domestic workers and gardeners.

The Bedfordview Residents Action Group

The Residents Action Group Bedfordview is a Section 21cc run by a dedicated Voluntary Committee from within the area. RAG was established in 2000 when crime increased, putting the safety and security of the residents residing in the RAG area at risk.
