Greetings to all residents,
We apologise for the delay in distributing this newsletter, as there was some uncertainty on the statistics which needed to be clarified. There has been a 10% reduction in the number of incidents reported when comparing August with July.

Hierdie nuusbrief vir Junie word gewy aan Louise Fowler, 'n sewejarige kindjie wat tragies in die laatmiddag deur die stormsee van 30 Junie uit haar moeder se arms geruk is.

This newsletter for June is written in memory of Louise Fowler, a seven year old, who tragically got swept from her mother’s grasp into the stormy seas, late afternoon of Friday 30th June.

Ons vra om verskonig dat hierdie nuusbrief so laat versprei word, maar weens onsekerheid oor sommige van die statistieke moes ons eers die feite uitklaar. Wat beskikbaar is skilder egter nie ‘n rooskleurige prentjie nie. Wat dit erger maak is dat in vele gevalle nalatigheid deur die inwoners aanleiding gegee het tot die insidente.

We apologise for the delay in distributing this newsletter, as there was some uncertainty on the statistics which needed to be clarified. As can be seen these statistics do not paint a pretty picture. What makes these incidents difficult to accept is that in many cases there was negligence on the part of residents.

Daar is 'n 69% verbetering in die aantal voorvalle in vergelyking met Februarie. Drie arrestasies is in die maand gemaak, wat, glo ons, 'n aansienlike impak het op die vermindering in die misdaadsyfer. Die uitstekende samewerking tussen die polisie, sekerheidsmaatskappye en die BBBW het tot hierdie arrestasies gelei. / There has been a 69% improvement in total incidents reported, compared to the statistics for February. There were 3 arrests made during the month which, we believe, has made a significant impact in the reduced crime incidents. There was great co-operation between the police, security companies and BBNW that resulted in these arrests.

Die misdaadstatistieke vir Julie toon 'n afname van 35% in die totale aantal voorvalle. Die owerhede bring hierdie afname in verband met die toename in stropersaktiwiteit. Die implikasie is dat stropers bloot hulself tot ander misdaad wend wanneer wetstoepassing hulle uit die see hou. Juis om hierdie rede moet ons ons pogings verskerp om ons gemeenskap veilig te hou.

The crime statistics for July show that there has been a 35% reduction in the total number of incidents in Bettys Bay. The authorities have ascribed this reduction partly to an increase in poaching activities. The implication is that as poaching activities are curtailed by law enforcement, the same people will resort to theft from properties. For this reason we must maintain and even increase our efforts to keep the neighbourhood safe.

Daar is 'n duidelike verbetering in die statistieke vergeleke met Desember en Januarie. Die toestand is nietemin onaanvaarbaar / As can be seen there has been an improvement compared to the statistics for December and January. The situation, however, remains unacceptable.
