CRIME AWARENESS AT BAYSIDE MALL IN TABLE VIEW

On Monday, 17 July 2017 Table View Police Station in partnership with Table View Neighbourhood Watch held a crime awareness project at Bayside Mall in Table View.

The display included various pamphlets on crime awareness about drugs, domestic violence, sexual offences, theft, theft out of motor vehicle, fraud, bullying, robberies and so forth. As part of the Customer is King project, which is a national project aimed at assessing the service from the police to the community, Table View Neighbourhood Watch assisted the community by completing the forms when they visited the display.

This crime awareness drive educated the community about the prevention of crimes affecting our communities, especially our youth.

Member Organisations are cordially invited to attend the TVCPF plenary meeting which is held every second month. This will be held on the 12th September at 18h30 in the Tableview SAPS Boardroom.

MEDIA RELEASE:  ROBBERY AWARENESS

Table View Police Station would like to issue a warning to the community that robberies are on the increase.  In order to reduce this crime, the community is made aware and should take heed of the following:

When you are behind the steering wheel of your vehicle, it is against the law to use your hands to hold your cell phone and speak on it.  Recently, a victim was stationary at a red traffic light on the corners of Gie and Blaauwberg Road in Table View, when the thief grabbed the cell phone from his hands through the window and ran away.  This occurred before 09:00 in the morning. Hot-spot areas with similar crime have been communicated via various mediums previously.

Refrain from talking on your cellular phone whilst walking in public, many victims have been threatened with dangerous weapons, and their cell phones taken from them by force.

Please warn your family, friends and neighbours.Should you be aware of any crimes being committed in your neighbourhood, contact Crime Stop on 08600 10111, or your local police station.
