Community patrol teams, formed in October 2013, are an initiative being piloted in a few communities in SPF. There are more than 150 local community members involved in community patrolling activities with support from Forestry Administration (FA) and Military Police (MP) Officials. They have significantly contributed to enforcing forestry law and collecting data on deforestation, forest degradation, and other illegal activities. Patrol activities and results are monitored and analyzed by SMART (Spatial Monitoring and Reporting Tool) that is designed to measure, evaluate and improve the effectiveness of forest and wildlife patrols. The community patrol is currently active in four villages where they reduce threats on SPF’s wildlife and biodiversity. Trainings and exchange visit were also provided to the law enforcement and community patrol teams to improve their capacity.
