Hood Challenge

Neighbourhood Watches, Buurtwag, Community Policing Forums (CPFs) play a key role in fighting crime in South African communities. A visible policing presence and good collaboration between SAPS, private security companies and residents can make a big difference in keeping areas more safe and secure.

With the ongoing scourge of violent crime, it’s essential that crime-fighting volunteers have access to a network of resources and are sufficiently skilled, trained and equipped to manage their risks when out and about in our neighbourhoods. Hand gun skills, reactive strategies, safety and defence tactics are critical and can, quite simply, be a matter of life or death.

To support CPFs and to up skill anti-crime volunteers, the new date of the inaugural Hood Challenge will be confirmed once renovations are complete

Besides valuable skills training through a series of thrilling real-life simulations, the Hood Challenge will be a fun-filled day out for the whole family.

HOOD CHALLENGE 2018 – What to expect on the day

You will need to report to registration as a team 45 minutes prior to your allocated time slot. On arrival you will need to read and sign the required indemnity document. Any friends and family will be able to take a spot in the picnic area where they can take advantage of the foods on offer, view the exhibitor’s products and services whilst they wait for you to return from your challenges.

You will then be directed to the holding zone.  If you have booked a firearm and any ammunition, you will collect it there. Water will be available for you while waiting to be called by a Range Officer.

Once called you will proceed to your first challenge. At each challenge you will be briefed in detail and have the opportunity to ask questions. Once you and your team member have completed a challenge you will be escorted to your next challenge by the Range Officer. These steps will be repeated until you have completed all four challenges.

Thereafter any loan firearm must be returned and you are then free to enjoy the rest of the days events.

Please note in order to maintain a level of sportsmanship, we will not allow filming or observation of the challenges.
