*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

Sea Point 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.
Previously Sea Point Police experienced the remote jamming method; however there has been an increase in the breaking of car windows.
By working together we can curb crime!!!

Marc takes over from Nicola Jowell who served as Chairperson for several years.
We wish Marc every success in this key role of building good relationships between our Police services and the Community of ratepayers and residents.
The Cape Town Community Police Forum (CPF) is the body that links SAPS and the community. This is our monthly newsletter, a snippet of what is happening in the Bowl!

Suppression, intervention
and prevention


As we know all too well..

... fighting crime is a complex and challenging task. 
Supression, intervention and prevention is all in a day's work for our members in blue and fellow law enforcement colleagues.

With this is mind the Cape Town Community Police Forum initiated CRIME FREE NIGHT.  It's intention is to partner with SAPS, law enforcement, and various other security agencies and role players within our city to try and  achieve the objective of ... a safer city for us all.

Cape Town Central station hosted crime free nights in June and July.  Our crime warriors braved the cold chill by turning up in numbers and truly making the nights in question CRIME FREE. 

With June having been youth month we also report back on the SAPS Holiday programme held in the Zonnebloem neighbourhood this year.

Last but definitely not least, we report on the opening of the City of Cape Town's Safe Spaces initiative and it's expected impact on the city's vagrancy and homelessness issue.

till next time....stay safe!

Further Reading

27/07/2018: Based upon a complaint received and a visit by SAPS, Club Vanilla in Harrington Street was duly closed.  The night staff manager was apprehended and a fine was issued in terms of the Western Cape Liquor Act for not adhering to the prescribed time of serving alcohol to patrons after (02:00 am).

The manager of the Club had been previously warned for not adhering to the  Western Cape Liquor Act.  This due to the number of complaints received from tenants in the building regarding noise levels and the unruly behaviour of the pubs clientele during the early morning hours both inside and outside the building.

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!)
