SECTOR POLICING THAT WORKS: A WEST RAND CASE STUDY
Wednesday, 16 February 2005
The 2003 Draft National Instruction on Sector Policing marked the start of a far-reaching policy initiative relating to grassroots policing. Although this policing approach has been widely debated, very little empirical research has been conducted into the implementation and success of the model.
This seminar will launch the recent monograph published by the ISS that reports on the manner in which the sector policing instruction has been interpreted and implemented in practice. Three police station precincts in the West Rand were studied as part of this project. The seminar will examine the extent to which the central tenants of sector policing – community mobilisation and problem-orientated policing – have begun to take root at ground level.
Assistant Commissioner RQ Machabi: Area Commissioner of the West Rand will be speaking on his experience of implementing the sector policing model in his jurisdiction. [Presentation]
Jonny Steinberg: Researcher and author of the sector policing monograph will be presenting an overview of his findings in relation to this project.
