Abstract

In December 1993, the national police commissioner issued a draft National Instruction on sector policing. The West Rand policing area in Johannesburg has interpreted this instruction creatively and ambitiously, and used it to fashion a new style of grassroots policing. This article describes the form of policing taking shape in the West Rand and the challenges facing police officials in the area.
