Somerset West Neighbourhood Watch (SWNW) is a voluntary network of residents and business owners in Somerset West looking after one another. We do this by COMMUNICATING with one another throughout Somerset West and into our rural surrounds.
Donations from generous members and businesses in our area have made it possible to fund staff for our independent radio Communication Centre since 2014, and on duty 24/7.
Members are directly linked via radios and cellphones to one another, security and medical response teams throughout the Helderberg Basin, and our CC is directly linked by tetra radio to the Metro Control Centre of City of Cape Town.
Department of Community Safety accreditation brings recognition by the City officials, who help us with training and communication with other accredited groups throughout Cape Town. Strong and trusted links with the Strand and Gordon’s Bay Neighbourhood Watch organisations mean that we have the Helderberg Basin covered by caring folks watching out for one another.
WhatsApp Security area groups keep us informed of security issues, while chat groups keep us entertained and connected.
Please contact us to be added to the SWNW family in your area.
