WINTERSKLOOF SECTOR FORUM (WSF)
The Winterskloof Tactical Surveillance Unit (aka WTSU or Eagles) is a community based initiative, established in August 2014 by the Winterskloof Sector Forum, to address escalating crime trends in the area. Introduction of pro-active crime prevention methods by the WTSU achieved this mandate.
The WTSU’s direct involvement in the Hilton Community Neighbourhood Watch (HCNW), the Hilton Rapid Response (HRR) and the HCNW Operational Group, continues to counter criminal activity in the area. Recent SAPS statistics confirm incidents of housebreaking in Hilton are the lowest in 20 years.
Bullet points below will give resident’s an idea of the WTSU’s involvement within the community:
• Executive Member of the HCNW as well as member of the HCNW Operations Group.
• Actively involved in the Hilton Rapid Response Unit.
• Closely monitor crime trends in Winterskloof and surrounding area.
• Maintain constant stream of ‘intel gathering’ relating to activities in Winterskloof/Hilton.
• Attend scenes of crime in the area to establish trends and to determine ‘modus operandi’ with a view to identifying suspects, linking known criminals and/or persons recently released.
• Maintain close liaison with Hilton SAPS, assisting where needed.
• Pro-actively conduct ‘visible’ mobile patrols in Winterskloof area.
• Co-ordinate day/night ‘foot/static patrols’ by surveillance officers, known as ‘The Eagles’.
• Install and monitor ‘covert cameras’ positioned at pre-determined locations to assist in operations.
• Co-ordinate ‘clandestine operations’ to deter would-be criminals.
• Monitor and respond to emergency reports on established ’WhatsApp Groups’.
IN ORDER TO SUSTAIN THIS PRO-ACTIVE APPROACH, WSF NEEDS THE SUPPORT OF EACH AND EVERY RESIDENT IN WINTERSKLOOF.
