Security in Parktown North

Securing the neighbourhood is a community effort

The Parktown North Residents Association(PNRA) has a value-added, integrated approach to security in Parktown North. With a dedicated PNRA administrator and active co-ordination with Parkview SAPS the PNRA makes the community safer. PNRA services provide an integrated anti-crime focus in Parktown North.

"The SafeParkview scheme of the Parkview Residents' Association has turned Parkview from a suburb into a highly sought after village. Hopefully, the Parktown North Residents' Association can do the same for Parktown North."

- Theodore Brickhill, Sotheby's

"Successful Residents’ Associations (RA), and more particularly those with their own well-run security schemes, contribute greatly to the amenity of the neighbourhood.  More and more, home buyers are attracted to an area such as Parkview where there is an active RA which runs an effective security scheme.  We expect that this, too, will increase the desirability of homes in Parktown North."

- Glynis van Zuydam, Jawitz Properties

The Parktown North Security Scheme:
Armed response and Public Space Security

The PNRA is pleased to announce that it has joined forces with 24/7 Security Services to provide armed response and public space security for Parktown. 24/7 has expressed their willingness to work in partnership with the PNRA for the benefit of our community.

The Parktown North Security Scheme will be managing and administering the services provided by 24/7 Security in terms of a Service Level Agreement between the PNRA and 24/7 Security. To join the Parktown North Security Scheme click here.

​Some PNRA initiatives that aid to safety of the neighbourhood are:

Graffiti Abatement Programme

  • Protecting the Integrity of Power Supply by, for example:

    • Urgently attending to power problems

    • Lobbying for ageing infrastructure to be replaced (such as the new mini-station on 11th Ave & new MV cabling installed down 7th Avenue - both projects initiated with City Power by the PNRA)

    • Inspecting, with the assistance of 24/7 and in cooperation with City Power, all Parktown North sub-stations and transformers to ensure that no damage is caused by displaced people living in, behind or on the facilities.

  • Cleaning Operations by our Community-in-Action Squad to prevent the area from becoming a magnet for crime, including:

    • Cleaning the car park

    • Cleaning the traffic islands

  • Ensuring PIKITUP does its job, intervening when necessary (remember thePIKITUP strike?!)

  • Supporting SAPS' inspections of building sites undertaken at SAPS' discretion.

  • Pro-actively organising anti-crime operations in Parktown North. PNRA partners with SAPS, the JMPD, 24/7 and Joburg Municipal agencies to conduct regular anti-crime operations.  These are conducted at different times of the day and year, with focus on hotspots that are identified through crime analysis.

  • Project Fresh Start where the PNRA helps to address the issue of those "sleeping rough" in Parktown North by working with the relevant agencies, including the City's Displaced Persons Units and the PNRA's Worship Forum.

  • Community Communications, including:

    • Meeting SAPS weekly
