What are Community Police?

Our communities in Walkers Fruit Farms, Walkerville, De Deur and Apple Orchards have joined forces with each other, Police Reservists and the De Deur SAPS in order to eradicate crime in our areas. This joint effort, supported by our Station Commissioner is already showing success in our mission to stop criminals in their tracks..
