*CRIME TREND*
There has been an increase in arrests recently of chain snatchers operating within the CBD. 
Please be mindful of not flashing valuables when walking in the CBD. 
Please inform your family and friends as well​.
PLEASE REPORT ALL CRIME

Police are urging the community to report all crime, no matter how small, as soon as possible, and give all relevant information.  This is to ensure that the police are aware of all incidences for deployment purposes.
It is of no use to report crime via social media and not report it to the Police.
We need to emphasize again the importance of not leaving valuables visible in your vehicle.
Although breaking into cars via the remote jamming method is occasionally reported there has been an increase in the breaking of car windows to steal whatever can be found inside. 
SAPS EMERGENCY  :  10111

Use this link to read the latest SAPS Community Forum Newsletter and back issues:

The Cape Town Community Police Forum (CPF) is the body that links SAPS and the community. This is their monthly newsletter. However the volunteer Chair and members who do the secretarial work and newsletter change frequently and one casualty seems to be the newsletter which has not been updated for some time.

MUGGINGS!


 S
treet muggings in the City Bowl seem to have been on the rise recently. Yet, most victims, too happy to come out of these unharmed, fail to report the incidents to the SAPS.
 
 
Phoning Caledon Square or just another SAPS instance will not help: you need to lodge a complaint if these incidents are to be curbed and the criminals arrested.
 
Call 021 467 8001/6

A police officer will come to you
and help you open a case without your having to go to Caledon Square.
 
 
Remember: when suspects are arrested with stolen property, the SAPS has no way of returning it to its rightful owner if they do not know whose it is... for that they need a case to have been opened.

 
Please, don't be a victim twice: help the muggers be arrested by reporting incidents to the above number and opening a case. If you don't, it's as if the incident never happened. And a friend, relative or one or your teen children could be yet another victim. Or you (don't confuse crime and lightning!)
