Concerned Citizens South Africa
Concerned Citizens want to create a SAFE environment for you to report crime and emergencies.
We can only do so if we are reasonably sure we all are who we said we are.
To take utmost reasonable care criminal elements do not infiltrate us, we require all community members joining our groups and channels to do a simple verification process.
FOR YOUR OWN AND OUR SAFETY!
Our verification process is done on the free App, Telegram.
It can be downloaded here.
For Android (Samsung) click here.
For Apple (iPhone) click here.
Install the App.
ON TELEGRAM DO THE FOLLOWING
Install the App.
Edit your profile.
Enter your real NAME and SURNAME
Upload a recent head-and-shoulder picture of yourself. (No hat, sunglasses or funny edits).
Add a username on Telegram.
TRY TO USE YOUR ZELLO PROFILE NAME AS YOUR TELEGRAM USERNAME.
Do not use offensive names.
If your Zello username is not available on telegram, use your REAL name and surname and add numbers if already taken. (Example: pietersmit123)
(Do not do the verification on a PC – it must be done from a mobile phone)
