Greetings to you all. This is the first newsletter for the year and is later than normal as we re-gather ourselves after the devastating fires during January. We sincerely regret the loss suffered in the fire at Jocks Bay and Sunny Seas, and those who lost their homes are in our prayers. The 11th January is a day we will remember for a long time. (English newsletter continues below.)

Gegroet is julle almal, Hierdie is die eerste nuusbrief van die jaar en is later as gewoonlik aangesien ons eers moes herstel na die verwoestende brande van Januarie. Ons opregte meegevoel gaan aan die gene wat verliese gely het in die vuur in Jocksbaai en Sunny Seas en ons bid veral vir hulle wie hul huise verloor het. Die 11de Januarie is ‘n dag wat ons nog lank sal onthou.

Greetings to you all, Gegroet is julle almal.

A review of crime statistics shows that there was no significant increase in overall reported crime. What is cause for concern is the modus operandi of some of the burglaries. The burglars know the short comings of the installed security systems and manage to gain access to properties without being detected. We are making a serious appeal to home owners to take control of the situation and get your security company to evaluate your system and even do a risk assessment of your property. Please download the PDF to read the article.

‘n Oorsig van die misdaad statistiek toon geen betekenisvolle verhoging in gerapporteerde misdaad nie. ‘n Bron van kommer is egter die modus operandi wat gevolg was by sommige inbrake. Die misdadigers ken die tekortkominge van die alarmstelsels en verkry dan toegang tot wonings sonder dat hulle opgetel word. Ons doen ‘n ernstige beroep op huiseienaars om beheer te neem van die situasie deur die betrokke sekuriteitsmaatskappy te versoek om u stelsel te evalueer en ‘n risiko anilise van u perseel te doen. Please download the PDF to read the article.

‘n Oorsig van die misdaad statistiek toon, in die geheel gesien, geen noemenswaardige toename in gerapporteerde misdaad nie.

A review of crime statistics show that there was no significant increase in overall reported crime but there has been more activity in the Silversands and Jocks Bay areas.

It seems that the time has flown by and we are about to enter the season when our town hosts many visitors and holiday makers and that brings with it the increased risk of opportunistic crime.

Die tyd het verby gevlieg en ons staan op die punt om gereed te maak vir ‘n tydperk wanneer ons dorp baie besoekers en vakansiegangers gaan ontvang.

Goeie dag aan almal. Greetings to you all.

Gedurende die eerste helfte van Augustus het die misdaad statistiek beter gelyk, maar, gedurende die tweede helfte van die maand was daar `n skielike toename in misdaad in Stony Punt en Jocksbaai area.

During the first half of August the crime stats were looking better but in the second half there was a sudden increase especially in Stony Point and Jocks Bay.

Greeting to you all/Groete aan u almal.

During July there has been a reduction in the number of burglaries reported to SAPS…

Gedurende Julie was daar ‘n afname in die aantal inbrake wat aan SAPS gerapporteer is…

Greeting to you all/Groete aan u almal.

Die inbrake gedurende Junie toon ‘n toename in vergelyking met die vorigemaande. Dit is veral die Stony Point en Rondevlei areas wat onder kriminele aktiwiteite deurgeloop het.

The burglaries that took place during June show an increase over the previous months and in particular the Stony Point and Rondevlei areas suffering the most from criminal activity.

Ons nuusbrief hierdie maand lyk anders. Onder is ‘n brief wat ek ontvang het van een van ons gereelde werkers by die buurtwag. Ek het die brief sonder enige veranderinge aangeheg.
Our newsletter this month takes on a different look. Below is a letter drafted by one of the people who help us on a regular basis. I have copied the letter without any editing.
