HBNW Daily Crime Updates: February 2018

Intended to keep you informed.
Information below is drawn from a variety of sources available to Hout Bay Neighbourhood Watch, primarily the HBNW Watchcon radio network and the HBNW Security Channel on Link Communities, and is by no means a complete record of criminal activity in Hout Bay.
While every attempt has been made by the writers to ensure accuracy of the reports, they, and HBNW, cannot guarantee the reliability of all source material. Please do not copy this information to open (un-moderated) social media sites.
If you are aware of any errors or incident(s) that need to be logged, please contact us or send an e-mail to: admin@hbnw.co.za

The most recently published SAPS crime statistics from April 2016 to March 2017 were released in October 2017, as SAPS only releases official crime statistics once a year.  For an excellent crime analysis tool check out Crime Stats SA>>  For Hout Bay crime stats click here>>

Being the victim of a serious crime
Keeping my family and property safe at all times
