Who We Are: Our Approach
Crime Watch is a proactive crime prevention and eradication operation, a visible deterrent to crime and a superb alarm monitoring and armed response service. Our high level of visibility results in less crime.
We are dedicated to the Milnerton Precinct and currently operate in Sunset Beach, Milnerton Ridge, Milnerton Central, Royal Ascot, Montague Gardens and Tijgerhof. The aim of the company is to ‘consolidate communities’ and thereby create an effective crime fighting force.
Our ‘consolidating communities‘ catch phrase refers to the ability of a community to organise effective security by working together. When a community/suburb supports a particular service provider it creates ‘buying power’. The service provider can then dedicate a response team to that suburb. This means that the response vehicle is available to carry out effective patrols in the area and be on the lookout for suspicious persons and activity, essentially preventing crime before it happens. Having a vehicle dedicated to a suburb also allows for fast response times. This has been achieved in Sunset Beach and Royal Ascot. Milnerton Ridge will soon be having a dedicated patrol vehicle too.
Increased buying power also means that the service provider can install added security measures such as neighbourhood CCTV networks. This has been achieved in Sunset Beach, Milnerton Ridge and Tijgerhof.
