There are numerous ways for you to be involved.

  • Being eyes and ears in the community is the most helpful – being observant and reporting suspicious behaviour. SAPS and other organisations can’t be everywhere all of the time
  • Make sure your community is looked after. A well-cared for community attracts less crime. SO report the broken street lamp for example – the city’s website has a section called Service Requests where issues needing attention can be reported. The link to this is www.capetown.gov.za/en/ServiceRequests/Pages/default.aspx or you can contact the call centre on 0860 103 089.  Water issues can be sent via SMS to 31220 and electricity problems by SMS to 31373
  • Get to know your neighbours – work together in looking after your locale – know who your neighbours are and having their contact details so you can share information and look after each other
  • Attend the SAPS monthly meetings for residents or join your Neighbourhood Watch.
  • Support the CPF’s fund raising initiatives – especially that for the field worker. The banking details are Sea Point CPF; Standard Bank Sea Point – 024109; Account 071033807.
  • AND above all report crimes to SAPS – incidents going unreported prevent SAPS knowing the extent of issues in our area. Knowledge makes sure problem hotspots can be identified and tackled.
