The Western Cape Government must add Community Police Forum (CPF) and the Neighbourhood Watch (NHW) to the list of Essential Service.

The CPF in normal circumstances is the essential link between Saps and the community , they are constituted to improve communication between the South African Police Service (SAPS) and the community, to promote transparency, and to foster joint problem-solving and co-operation with a view to improving service delivery by the SAPS , to help combat crime and inforce the lock down rules as pre scribed .

In conjunction with the CPF, all NHW must be re called and permitted to operate under the Lock down rule.

The CPF will guide and co ordinate all NHW members.

There Essential Service will help to clamp down on the influx of crime, promote safety and security of all neighbourhoods and give SAPS and Security Services more time to help in the hot spot areas.

The NHW will include the following rules to their patrols.
