Police the Police Campaign

This service could be quite handy for both South Africans and tourists. I hope it slows down the police decay in this sick country.

from Carte Blanche

In response to a rising number of reported incidents about bogus cops and police abusing their power Eblockwatch has launched the Police the Police campaign.

FREE to all registered eblockwatch members - please ensure that your 4 support member details are correct in the system (especially their email addresses!). Please note that normal cell phone rates apply for the call.

All members please save 0822360003 to your contacts. If you are pulled over by the police please dial this number, the conversation between you and the police is recorded and saved on our server. We ask that you try to provide as much detail as possible during the conversation:

Describe the police car (make, model, colour, the number painted on the side of the car along with the registration number)

Ask the police person for their name and badge number

Mention the number of police officers

Make it clear to the officer that you have just made a call to your friend to tell them where you are etc

Describe your location and surroundings

Try to let the phone remain in a position where the conversation can be recorded.

When you hang up, a link to the voice recording is sent in an email to your four support members. An additional benefit for our members with the panic button service is that we immediately send an sms notification to them to check their email for your voice recording.

The purpose of this service is:

To have evidence of the bogus cop or cop abusing their power

To have your 4 support members get the details of your situation via the recording

The mere fact that the police officer is aware of being recorded will enoucourage the correct behaviour
(because they have NO integrity)
