Fact Sheet 13: Sector Policing: The SAPS' seminal strategy

Sector policing is a decentralised, geographical, problem oriented and community-focused approach to policing. Simply put, it requires that every station precinct be divided into two or more sectors and that each sector be assigned a sector commander to coordinate and drive sector activities. In 2015 the South African Police Service (SAPS) published a Sector Policing Operational Guide, presenting a clear, in-depth overview of the sector police philosophy and how it should be implemented. This fact sheet reviews key tenets of sector policing as presented in the SAPS’ Sector Policing Operational Guidelines.
