Safety & Security Report: October 2016

When a community works together in the interests of all residents and businesses, the improvements in safety and wellbeing are easy to identify.

With that in mind, October 2016 saw only 10 incidents opposed to the 25 that took place in September 2016. The most common of these being theft out of homes or business and motor vehicle accidents in the past month. On 15 October, a known suspect was arrested in Green Point for theft of seven laptops and two bottles of liquor. The joint effort between GP/OKCID, SAPS and Cape Quarter security was seamless and efficient.

There were several clean-up operations planned and executed successfully over the course of the month and the GP/OKCID team has begun preparing thoroughly for the festive season. Contrary to popular opinion, crime doesn’t skyrocket during December and January specifically. However, the public are also encouraged to prepare for the holidays by remembering three simple guidelines:

  1. Always be vigilant when walking on the street – travel in groups.
  2. Avoid sparsely populated or poorly-lit areas if traveling alone – stick to main roads if possible.
  3. Never leave valuables in your car – take your belongings with you.

As a team of professionals committed to protecting our city, and the Green Point and Oranje-Kloof areas specifically, we want you to know that we’re here for you. Make sure you have the numbers below saved in your phone and in the event of a safety incident please contact us.

Let’s take care of Cape Town, together.

‘@Frits Dog Hotel & Daycare Centre: Something to bark about

A man’s best friend deserves to be pampered occasionally, and the @Frits Dog Hotel & Daycare Centre is the first of its kind in Cape Town. The five-star dog hotel opened in December 2015 as owner Yanic Klue wanted to create a space where furry friends would be welcomed and taken care of.

This hotel is far from an ordinary kennel, offering top-class treatment to canine companions. Dog lovers around the Mother City are thrilled about this new establishment, which offers a concierge service, spa, day-care, premium rooms and day tours.

@Frits Dog Hotel, which initially started out as a dog clothing brand, is an innovative company that decided to diversify their offering to include a luxurious city hotel. Yanic named it after her pet dog, and co-owner, Frits Smit. After a trip to the U.S.A, where they have many stylish dog hotels available, she was inspired to open this establishment.

Bringing the idea to Cape Town was easy, especially with the number of owners who want only the best for their four-legged friends. Tailored to suit your best friend’s needs, the hotel offers scrumptious doggie meals from an à la carte menu, DSTV (tuned to animal planet), webcams to give owners a view of their pet’s stay, themed movie nights and a snack bar. There is also a vet on-site if any of the dogs suffer anything more serious than homesickness.

For the ultimate pampering experience there is a Platinum room with premium bedding and linen, a flat-screen television and a complementary spa treatment with daily dental care.

Every @Frits Dog Hotel staff member is passionate about animals and thoroughly enjoys taking the dogs on their daily 45-minute walk in a nearby park. If your furry friend needs a pamper session, book them in with a spa therapist for a ‘pawdicure’ or bubble bath.

The hotel may be a bit over the top for most, but your dog  will certainly think it’s worth it! Plus you’ll definitely have a good night’s rest on your holiday knowing that your fourlegged friend is in the best hands.

Love Warrior brings sexy back to the city

Love Warrior is here to bring sexy back to the mother city. Sleek, simple and sneakily tucked between a strip of shops on Kloof Street. This stylish stop will make you say things you’ve never said before, like “on fleek” and “that’s so dapper”. What does dapper mean, you ask? It means smart, spruce, trim, debonair, dashing, groomed – everything that Warrior Love represents.

“Fearless” is wallpapered in bold letters on the facing wall as you enter from the rushing sidewalk. It makes a statement and when you’re clad in one of their house brands – Beleave, Major John or SPCC – you will make a statement too. The hottest items (read: fast-moving and “hot” as in “you’ll definitely be noticed for your impeccable taste”). Love Warrior, although positioned as a men’s outfitters establishment, has something for everyone.

One of the most striking items available in-store and online is the Love Warrior bowtie collection, particularly the Mo selection – handcrafted wooden masterpieces that some call “accessories” but we call “art”. If you buy one of these Mo bowties in November, 15% of the proceeds will go to the Movember Foundation South Africa. Be stylish and support a cause.

While the expression stands, there is enough space to swing a cat in this minimalist store (though we wouldn’t suggest it). You can browse with plenty room to strut your stuff in front of the full-length mirror – and you’ll want to when you’re wearing a Love Warrior item. Tourists are also known to frequent this fashion haven, asking often for Beleave – boasting an African flair that will set them apart when they return to their home country.

Cape Town is known for its trend-setting, boundary-pushing fashion but sometimes it’s the classics that keep customers coming back. Revamp your wardrobe with a well-made button shirt, a figure-hugging pair of jeans, the kind of sneakers that even your mother-in-law would ask about and accessories that won’t go out of season anytime soon.
