Well done to our team for assisting with 7 arrests in March! Most incidents were theft out of cars and house break-ins/ attempted break-ins.
Our patrollers spotted and guarded 10 doors, windows and garage doors left open. Please double-check that your home, office or retail space is secured when you leave, as there is a lot of opportunistic crime at the moment, and open doors offer the perfect opportunity to criminals on the lookout for easy access.
Our team also assisted with 17 municipal service requests, including logging service reports for 2 burst water pipes, 5 broken street lights and reporting a number of missing manhole covers and potholes in need of repair. Thank you for your efforts to ensure that our communities continue running smoothly!
Each month, our patrollers also assist with various emergency situations. In March they helped with 4 medical emergency incidents, alerted fire and rescue services on 2 occasions, and even extinguished small 2 fires on their own – one on Castle Street, where a small structure had caught alight, and one on the corner of Waltervreden and Morkel Street, where a tree had caught alight. Excellent work team!
