The South African Police Service is a people-oriented service. It is a service for the community by the community with the emphasis on the fundamental rights of all the people of South Africa. The rationale is based on the needs of people and the flexibility of policing, which is the basis for community policing. It involves a consultative approach in which the community is the key stakeholder.

Cell phone emergency - 112
For emergencies, you can call 112 from any cell phone in South Africa. You will then reach a call centre and they will route you to an emergency service closest to you. This can be for any type of emergency, from fires to ambulance requirement.
When you dial this number you will reach an automated menu. Don't let this frustrate you. The menu acts as a form of triage (priority of treatment) control and filters out abuse of the medical and emergency system.
It's very easy to get caught up in distress but remember to stay calm and make sure the emergency medical services team knows exactly how to reach you.
