Security & Crime
The Community Camera Fund is run by a committee of dedicated locals
Hi-Tec Security Coastal and Hi-Tec Security are excited to announce the launch of the Buzzer App in our area!
The Community Camera Fund was started in 2011, to answer the ground swell of crime in our entire area, being, Kenton, Merryhill, Riversbend and Boesmans.
Here are the latest crime stats from Hi-Tec Security Coastal, for the month of September 2020, for Kenton-on-Sea, Bushman’s, Riversbend and Merryhill.
So far this year – and this is according to HiTec stats – we have had 62 incidents. That equates to 7,75 incidents per month.
The immediate problem I see with this ‘lockdown’ is that there are no clear and distinct guidelines; everybody seems to be interpreting the guidelines the way that suits them best.
The Festive Season is usually synonymous with crime spikes, but by being tough on crime we are very happy and proud to report an extremely low crime Festive Season period!
Criminal activity has notably increased, but we’re doing our utmost to curb it.
Crime Stats and arrests made: 13 September – 30 September 2019 – from Boknes to Kenton.
Crime Stats and arrests made: 15 July to 13 September 2019 – from Boknes to Kenton.
We are trying to be more proactive and less reactive. So for the Easter and Christmas Holidays next year we want to be able to plan ahead.
This is how we are using Social Media to improve security and awareness in our area and improve security for all.
