The License Plate Recognition (LPR) cameras at the entrance to Pringle Bay are critical for identifying and tracking vehicles or individuals involved in criminal activities in our area.
SECURITY CAMERAS FUND
The primary purpose of the Security Cameras Fund is to support the upkeep of the License Plate Recognition (LPR) and the surveillance cameras at the entrance to Pringle Bay. This system is linked to the National Vehicle Intelligence Cloud(NAVICTM) system which is widely used by all law enforcement agencies countrywide. It is a critical tool for identifying and tracking vehicles or individuals involved in criminal activities in our area. Data captured by these cameras have been proven to be extremely valuable on a number of occasions.
System upgrades, software licenses and occasionally hardware replacement need to be funded and this is made possible by donations from the Pringle Bay community. In the longer term, alternate or additional security surveillance systems may be explored and implemented.
CRIME PREVENTION INITIATIVE
The PBRA and the Pringle Bay Street Watch (PBSW) have embarked on an initiative to investigate, identify, and implement an effective solution for improving the safety and security of the town and the community. The goal is to implement more sophisticated camera technology to reduce, and as far as possible, eliminate criminal activity in our environment. This is a long term project which will most likely be rolled out in several phases.
A public meeting was held on the 9th November 2019 where the workgroup shared progress and invited participation and comment from the community. The documents below contain the Agenda and Presentation, and the Questions and Answers.
Since then, we have prepared and issued Tender Documentation to a number of prominent industry role players. We have invited proposals and cost estimates. Based on the responses we were able to determine a phased implementation and have subsequently asked for quotes to commence with Phase 1 of the proposed solution. We have entered into discussions with Overstrand Municipality to consider contributing towards the implementation of Phase 1.
We actively participate in the Overstrand Public Safety Forum (OPSF), the Hangklip – Kleinmond Community Police Forum (CPF) and the Kleinmond Police Joint Operations Committee (JOCOM). We are actively supporting and receiving support from neighbouring Neighbourhood- and Street Watches.
