    PARKWOOD

    Call for crimefighters

    CHEVON BOOYSEN

    @ChevonBooysen

    A

    group of no nonsense residents from

    Parkwood have taken a stand against

    crime and plan to take their commu-

    nity back.

    Fed upwith gang shootings, robberies and

    drug turf wars the Parkwood Neighbour-

    hoodWatch arenowcalling on residents and

    police to assist them to fight crime.

    Through various initiatives, they aim to

    make the community a safer place to live in.

    Since the inception in September 2010, the

    groupof crime fightershavehad several suc-

    cesses.

    Neighbourhood watch secretary Eleanor

    Abrahams says frequent operations con-

    ducted in the area has seen many illegal

    weapons confiscated.

    We conduct patrols and during these pa-

    trols we often have small operations. We

    walk to the parks where people often drink

    and smoke and we also do stop and search-

    es, Abrahams says.

    These patrols includes the shutting down

    of spaza shops which operate outside of the

    agreed trading time.

    She also says due to gang shootings, pa-

    trollers are at risk and fear for their safety.

    We do not even have the proper equip-

    ment to function effectively but we do as

    much as we can with the little we have. We

    need sufficient equipment to provide an effi-

    cient service, Abrahams explains.

    The lack of resources have also impacted

    on the neighbourhood watch patrols.

    We cannot do our jobs properly if we

    arent equipped to do so. We can only hope

    this will change soon so we can deliver a

    service to our community, Abrahams says.

    The watch needs two-way radios, a stun

    gun, pepper spray and batons.

    Ward councillor Melanie Arendse says

    moneyhas beenmade available to the neigh-

    bourhood watch from the ward allocation

    funds for the City of Cape Towns 2014/2015

    financial year.

    An amount of R15 000 has been made

    available to the neighbourhood watch but

    this will only become available after the an-

    nual meeting which will take place during

    January next year, Arendse explains.

    Abrahams says the watch needs the help

    of police and the Community Police Forum

    (CPF). We do not get the support of the po-

    lice station. We contact them to do patrols

    with us but there is hardly a positive re-

    sponse, she says.

    ChairpersonDeonThomas says the organ-

    isations biggest challenge is getting the sup-

    port of the police.

    If we can get the help of our police then

    everything else will fall in place. So far we

    have been struggling to get them to work

    with us. We only get help from theMetro Po-

    lice, Thomas says.

    Acting station commander of Grassy Park

    Police Station, Lieutenant-Colonel Chris-

    tian Esau says they arewilling to assist with

    patrols. He explains if the watch does not re-

    ceive assistance when calling the station,

    they should report it to him.

    They can also call the sector commander

    or reservists living in Parkwood to assist,

    he adds.

    Thomas explains the watch has also come

    under fire fromresidentswhoheclaimshurl

    bricks and stones at the watch.

    When you try to do good for your commu-

    nity, they take it as something bad. They

    cannot be blamed because crime has been a

    part of this community for so long. People

    fear the gangs but we want attitudes to

    change and we will take back our communi-

    ty, Thomas insists.

    The watch has also held peace marches.

    We want to show our community we are

    here to help.Wewant to change the attitudes

    of our residents toward crime.

    Abrahams says the group started with a

    27 members but this has dwindled to 12.

    We desperately need more people on

    board.

    Waiting in vain

    ASTRID FEBRUARIE

    @FebAstrid

    A

    n incensed woman claims there is no

    decent treatment of the elderly, preg-

    nant women and women with infants

    at the Home Affairs office in Wynberg.

    She wants to know why they do not intro-

    duce specific days for the agedand first-time

    identity document (ID) applicants.

    The woman, who asked not to be named,

    said she went to Home Affairs in Wynberg

    twice already to apply for an ID for her son.

    Besides Wynberg, the only Home Affairs

    offices which issue the new Smart ID card

    are Khayelitsha, Nyanga and Cape Town.

    They issue you a number and people

    dont even know what queue to stand in.

    What is the point of insisting on ID cards

    when there are only fourHomeAffairs offic-

    es issuing the new IDs? she asked.

    She said she wants an ID card for her son

    as IDs are issued free for first-time appli-

    cants.

    It make no sense to be forced to get an

    ID book and then afterwards have to re-do

    the application for a card for which you

    have to pay, she says.

    Both times the woman went to
