VRCID operational during festive season

The Voortrekker Road Corridor Improvement District (VRCID), which had cameras installed targeting the hotspot areas in the Bellville and Parow CBD areas earlier this year, aims to roll out even more cameras in the new year.

Derek Bock, operational head of the VRCID, says since the cameras have been installed in Bellville and Parow CBD, more residents have become aware and they know they are being watched.

“The VRCID believes that the cameras have made a difference in the area because people are always calling to ask for footage or calling for information,” he says.

Bock says since the installation of the cameras, the police have also made use of their video footage which allows them to view the footage in real time.

Bock says the Licence Plate Recognition (LPR) cameras will also become operational soon.

Parow and Bellville residents can be assured that the VRCID, which also works closely with the police, will be fully operational this festive season. “All of our staff, vehicles and cameras will be on duty because it’s a normal period for us,” says Bock. He says last year, the festive season was quiet in Parow and Bellville because most people return to their home towns over this period. “This week will be very busy as people are doing their last-minute shopping so we appeal to residents to remain vigilant during this festive season and just remember the basics:

•Ensure that your property is locked up and there’s enough lighting.

•Talk to your neighbours and make sure they know you’re going away.

•Don’t walk around with large sums of money.

•Beware of ATM fraudsters.

•Remember to double check that your car doors are locked properly.”
