Western Cape Premier Helen Zille established the commission in August 2012 after receiving complaints from non-government organisations about a rise in vigilante killings and a breakdown in the relationship between community members and police.
Commissioners Justice Kate O'Regan and advocate Vusi Pikoli on Tuesday led a delegation to three police stations in the township.
As darkness fell, the delegation made its way to informal settlements.
Evidence leader Thembalihle Sidaki explained they also need to understand the conditions in which people live.
"It was a special request from the complainant organisations. They wanted to show the commissioners how the community lives and the conditions they find themselves under, especially at night."
The commission will spend today visiting several areas, including Harare Park.
