BKM and Constantia Neighbourhood Watches hosted an exhibition to highlight “working together” at the Constantia Village Shopping Centre on Saturday 15 November 2014. Thanks to Constantia Village for your support. Partners who are actively involved in the BKM and CW areas in the fight against crime joined us in a show of solidarity and support. These included members from SAPS Diepriver, our biggest sponsor ADT, BH Security, Chubb, SANParks, Verifier Offsite CCTV Monitoring and the Constantia Watch SRT (special response team) from OGM International.
Pick ‘n Pay Constantia Village kindly provided sandwich platters to all members at the exhibition over lunch – thanks to them. Our appreciation to the resident volunteer committee members and patrollers who assisted to man the stands, and to answer a never ending deluge of interesting questions from the multitudes of people stopping to chat.
This was indeed a show of unity, of the “eyes and ears” patrollers, the security companies and our local SAPS who jointly work together daily, sharing information, and communicating over a common community radio network to assist in reporting, and acting on suspicious persons/vehicles and the subsequent response.
During the exhibition there was an LPR alert, to which the SAPS members rushed out to. They found the vehicle, detained all for profiling, and 1 of the occupants was found to be wanted on outstanding cases in both Sandton JHB and Milnerton in CT.
