Chief: Mr. AK Kanime

The Windhoek City Police has adopted Community Oriented Policing and Problem Solving as its core policing concept as outlined in its mission:  "In partnership with the community, render a reliable and efficient policing service through professional conduct, the application of modern technology and sound management operational practices".

The City Police is guided by its vision "to be the model policing service provider, in order to enhance the safety and quality of life of all people".

The role of the City Police is to complement the Namibian Police in the following service areas:

  • Crime Prevention
  • Law Enforcement
  • Traffic Policing
  • Enforcement of By Laws in the City of Windhoek’s area of jurisdiction

The day-to-day operational and administration activities are guided by the Municipal Police Service Regulations and the Memorandum of Understanding signed between the Namibian Police and the City of Windhoek in 2004. The Service has full policing power except the power to investigate.
