APRIL SECURITY REPORT for Green Point & Oranje-Kloof


We’re proud to report that in April there were 23 successful arrests made. There were also just 49 criminal incidents reported in the GP/OKCID area, which is a 5% decrease in crime in the area from March to April.


Theft out of motor vehicles remains the most common criminal activity, with 28 incidents reported in April. This equates to a car being broken into almost daily. The hotspots for windows being smashed and goods stolen are:

  • Nicol Street
  • New Church Street
  • Long Street
  • Somerset Road
  • Union Street
  • Rose Street
  • Strand Street
  • Park Road


We’d also like to commend Siviwe Gobeni, one of our foot patrol officers, for outstanding service. Marc Truss, our chief executive, recently expressed his gratitude to this invaluable team member, saying: “He goes above and beyond to protect people and their homes – he puts his life on the line and takes initiative. It’s very admirable.” Gobeni has made six arrests over the past three months. “He’s admired for his exceptional reporting skills and team communication, with a shining reputation for being alert and quick to respond in a crisis. He is one of our best assets,” said our operations manager, Percy Mokoena.


If we can assist you in any way, please let us know. We’re happy to help wherever we can, whether that means cleaning up a certain area or even just walking you to your car. If you care about your community and would like to be part of our continued efforts to improve the area, why not become a board member? You can make a real impact, meet new people, and always be abreast of what’s happening nearby, and all we need from you is attendance at four board meetings a year.
