“I just wanted to put on record your service on Saturday following a double activation. I was out and called my amazing neighbour for help also and he declared himself to your guys , they went over the wall/fence as instructed ( dogs are always inside) and investigated for us . My neighbour was most impressed by their intentions to ascertain all was safe – you make me feel better so please thank them and thank you ! “

“I would like to extend my gratitude to the wonderful Crime Watch team. Last night there was an incident in my neighbour’s property. My partner and I heard an alarm go off, and before we could even make it out the front door to check what was happening, Crime Watch was already present. They have an amazing quick response time which truly distinguishes them from any other armed response company that I’ve heard of.”
Staci Goldblat -11 July 2019

The first area of operation for Crime Watch SA was Sunset Beach in 2003. Crime stats for Sunset Beach at that time were between 8 and 25 house break-in and theft incidents per month.  Crime Watch SA launched its protection and response service and quickly reduced the crime in the area almost eradicating it altogether, making Sunset Beach one of the safest places in Cape Town.  The adjacent suburbs requested that the Crime Watch SA service be expanded to their areas and this has taken place progressively ever since.

Sunset Beach is a successful case study, with their camera projects and active patrolling (not just armed response).

What is your response time
We are constantly patrolling in our cars locally, making our response times faster than any other companies responding from their base.

Our objective is to get all response times within a maximum of 5 minutes from point of activation. In suburbs where we have dedicated vehicles, our response times are closer to 3 minutes.

Do you do Installations
Yes. We do alarm & CCTV installations and maintenance anywhere in Cape Town and will provide expert advice on your current systems and suggest suitable technology to close any security gaps.
What area do you operate in
We operate Anywhere in Cape Town, but we only respond in Sunset Beach, Milnerton Ridge, Milnerton Central, Royal Ascot, Woodbridge Island, Montague Gardens, Tijgerhof, Summer Greens, Phoenix, Rugby, Brooklyn and parts of Paarden Eiland for rapid response times, but if you are outside our immediate coverage area, we can monitor your alarm systems, CCTV Cameras and electrical fences remotely and dispatch your local response team to your property in the event of an alarm activation.
What is the camera project
This is our network of CCTV and License Plate Recognition cameras which are connected to the same database searching system as approx. 1200 others in the greater Cape Town areas. This network of cameras can track any suspect or vehicle from one area into another. This intelligent policing pre-empts crime from potentially occurring, and can catch suspects even if they have moved out of the immediate vicinity.

Crime Watch is also working with the Western Cape Government and other interested parties who donate towards this community based camera project which aims to link all the cameras across the Western Cape onto one platform.
