AfriForum’s Edenvale neighbourhood watch received six new bullet-proof vests on 13 October 2018 after the local branch had identified this need because of an increase in crime in the area.
“The neighbourhood watch forms part of AfriForum’s local branch structures and aims to assist the community in times of need in cooperation with the SAPS,” says Linda McKenzie, Deputy Chairperson of AfriForum’s Edenvale branch.
“Safety equipment is invaluable to any safety structure. The Edenvale neighbourhood watch can now contribute to the curbing of crime in the area. The neighbourhood watch also welcomes the cooperation from other safety structures in the town,” McKenzie says.
“We encourage the community to become involved in the local branch and neighbourhood watch. The more people involved, the greater the difference that we can make,” she concludes.
