The Table View Neighbourhood Watch (TVNW) was formed in 2008 by a handful of residents that decided to take back their streets. Being concerned about the rising levels of crime in the community, the residents focused on their immediate area of Flamingo Vlei – a sub-section of the suburb of Tableview. These volunteers give up their free time to keep the community safe. This is done by either foot patrols, vehicle patrols or static patrols. None of the members are paid for their time and they do it out of the kindness of their hearts.
TVNW has since expanded to cover the following areas: Table View, Bloubergstrand, West Beach, Big Bay, Sunningdale, Parklands, Parklands North, Parklands East and Rivergate. The membership has grown to over 650 members in 2017 and is still steadily increasing day by day.
