Residents are being advised to contact their nearest local police station instead of the South African Police Service (SAPS) hotline, as the call centre has been temporarily closed.

Calling the well-known 10111 number that most locals know will be fruitless until further notice as the line is currently not operating.

The news was announced by SAPS, but no reason was given for the temporary closure. Find the contact details for your nearest Cape police station below:
