Teams play an integral role in organisational growth and its use has expanded dramatically to meet competitive challenges. However, teams need to be cohesive in order to be successful. This study assesses team cohesiveness, based on seven dimensions, in a team based police service department. A simple random sample of 61 members from different teams was drawn from a District Police Station, which is dependent on highly cohesive teamwork. Data was collected using a self-developed questionnaire, which was statistically assessed, and analysed using descriptionptive and inferential statistics. The results reflect team members' perceptions of their team's cohesiveness and recommendations are made to enhance these dimensions used to determine team cohesiveness.
