    APCOF

    The African Policing and Civilian Oversight Forum is a network of African policing practitioners from state and non-state institutions. We promote democratic policing through strengthening civilian oversight over the police in Africa. APCOF undertakes research, provides technical support to state and non-state actors including civil society organisations, the police and new and emerging oversight bodies in Africa.

    Join our Network, or subscribe to our information service.

    APCOF is also a founding and managing partner in the Consortium on Crime and Violence Prevention (CCVP) a collaboration between the Centre for Justice and Crime Prevention (CJCP) and APCOF, which works in South Africa and across the continent on projects in the crime prevention sector.
