A lunchtime braai, arranged by the Hilton Community Neighbourhood Watch (HCNW) and sponsored by Hilton Quarry SuperSpar, was recently held at Cowan House in appreciation of the sterling work carried out by their members, who have gone far beyond the call of duty, to reduce crime in Hilton.
The HCNW was established in mid-2019 by members of the Hilton SAPS and Community, to counter rising crime in Hilton. The HCNW then established the Hilton Rapid Response (HRR) motorized unit which comprises the Hilton SAPS, volunteer members of the Community and some of the Armed Response Security companies operating in Hilton who volunteer their services free to the unit.
Certificates of Appreciation were awarded to Knight Security Solutions, Red Alert, Magma Security, Winterskloof Tactical Surveillance Unit, Aliwal Security, Pmb Security, National Security and Bidvest Protea Coin (Mondi) at the braai.
A network of five Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) camera gantries have been erected at the five main entry/exit points to Hilton by the Umngeni Community Safety Initiative (UCSI) which have proven successful in supplying information to the SAPS regarding vehicles suspected to have been involved in crime. The UCSI also received a Certificate of Appreciation from the HCNW.
The successes achieved by the HCNW and HRR are directly attributed to members of Hilton SAPS who lead and guide the process, followed by Armed Response Security companies and members of the community. This initiative is supported and appreciated by the Hilton Community.
