Summer, with its radiant sun and calming warmth, is a time for exploration and activity-filled days.

Bop to the beats of Boney M: top four spots for your Christmas gig

It’s that time of year again. You walk into Pick n Pay with Mariah Carey’s ‘All I want for Christmas is you’ blasting through the speakers while you fill your basket with a glazed gammon and pre-made peppermint crisp tart. Or alternatively, you prepare yourself for the annual Christmas work lunch where you all eat too much, dance, and sing to Boney M’s ‘Little Drummer Boy’ far too loudly. Although corny and sometimes exhausting, it’s the time of year that we can’t help but love, and so we’re here to guide you to the best spots in the Oranje-Kloof area where you can host the most glorious Christmas events catering to a wide range of budgets.

GP/OKCID security report – October 2019

This past month there has been a decrease in emergencies, medical matters, and assistance required, as well as removals on the homeless, with one fewer incident of each compared to September.

We still encourage you to be aware of your surroundings and to not carry valuables in full visibility, and don’t leave anything on a seat in your vehicle.

In October alone, our law enforcement officers issued 699 fines and made 11 arrests: four in the Green Point area and seven in the Oranje-Kloof area. They also had arrests where complainants didn’t want to open criminal charges against suspects, so there would’ve been more arrests in total. We encourage you to open a case for every incident, to ensure that suspects don’t become repeat offenders.

We’re very proud of our Law Enforcement Officer Amanda George, who received her certificate of excellence and a R3 000 voucher from MEC Alfred Fritz, Western Capes Community Safety Minister, on October 9th. Keep up the incredible work, Amanda!

Keep our 24 patrol vehicle numbers on hand for assistance:
