The main purpose of the MRNW is to assist residents in reducing crime
We cover the area from the Paddocks end of Milnerton Drive to the Traffic Department end of Milnerton Drive, and all the roads leading off Milnerton Drive.

That would be nice but no, nobody gets paid. It’s a voluntary service for the good of the community we live in.
The CPF is the conduit between the Neighbourhood Watches and SAPS. They assist with communications between the entities.
Crimewatch is a separate armed response entity, funded by subscribed residents in Milnerton Ridge, and neighbouring suburbs. They have the biggest presence in the area, respond the quickest, are locally owned and have the best interests of the community in mind. They are willing to work with the Neighbourhood Watch and assist us with any issues that we encounter whilst on patrol. We have a radio link with them and they are close at hand when needed. Not to be confused with Milnerton Crime Watch, who service the Milnerton ‘Proper’ area in lieu of a Neighbourhood Watch and are funded by the residents in that area.
First off, please join the Watch. Again, being a member doesn’t require anyone to do physical patrols. We have Active and Passive membership, explained below.
Any person who resides in the area as defined above. Must be over the age of 18 and have a clean police record.
You can apply on-line right on this site once your registration for site membership has been approved. Alternatively, you can e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for a form, which you can then complete, scan in and send back for processing.
It does not cost anything to join the watch. We do sell house signs and vehicle identification stickers which assist us in identifying who belongs in the area or not.
You get to belong to a community who cares about what happens to the people who live in it.
Definitely not. It’s about being aware and keeping an eye out on what is happening in the area and reporting anything odd to the rest of the residents and or service provider.
These are simply different types of patrolling. Eyes&Ears means that people should be aware and on the lookout for anything strange and report any suspicious behaviour. Active means that you’re willing to actively participate in any form on patrol in the neighbourhood.
Not shop-branded trolleys – these belong to the shops in question and have been stolen.
It attracts vagrants into the area and amongst these are criminals. They can also use your bin as a step ladder to jump over your wall.
In a nutshell, if you can’t repeat what you want to say to your grandmother, then don’t broadcast it in public.
