When we think SECURITY we immediately think of alarming our homes, closing our windows and bolting our doors; making sure our PRIVATE SPACE is secure and safe.
But what about securing the PUBLIC SPACES of our village, that’s our streets, parking areas and beaches, who does that? Well, in a perfect world, SAPS would be out there patrolling and pounding the beat, but in reality SAPS nationwide is hard pressed to cope. So that’s where KOSRA is focusing its attentions, our public spaces, our village. That’s not to say we can’t help in private spaces if incidents occur and we can be of use, but it’s the public spaces that are of major concern to us.
HOW ARE WE DOING THAT?
Mark Moses, from the KOSRA Committee, also heads up the Community Camera Fund (CCF). Started as a joint initiative between, Bushmans, Kenton, Riversbend, Merryhill and Natures Landing, the CCF funds the placement of cameras determined to be beneficial to the community. The fund also pays for the cleaning and monitoring of the cameras.
