On Monday 1 April - residents received an email requesting assistance with funding for security projects in Paulshof. The PRRA would like to inform residents that this email was NOT A SCAM! The request was sent by the security committee. We apologise for any confusion and would like to send you the information again to ensure you - that as a community - we are indeed asking for your help!
Last year, the PRRA with the residents of Paulshof instituted an upgrade to the security for the neighbourhood, and installed booms at the main entrances to Paulshof, along with the partial booming off of Clifton road.
Unfortunately in light of the recent crimes, we, as a community need to do more. The current system relies on a guard to open the booms. This is not ideal, as there is no record of who has entered the suburb and who has left the suburb, making it difficult to compile a database of vehicles in the suburb at or slightly before an incident to help identify the perpetrators.
The current cameras in place have already aided in our fight against crime, and have supplied the number plates and types of vehicles commissioned in crimes to the police. However, due to the positioning of the cameras they cannot always identify the driver of the car.
With your help this can change.
Paulshof is looking to place electronic booms at the entrances to Paulshof which will
1) Record the number plate of all vehicles entering and exiting the suburb
2) Record a photo of the driver of the vehicle
3) Will record the licence disk of the motor vehicle (in the case of the vehicle being fitted with false plates.)
Unfortunately this type of system comes at a cost, and whilst some money has been raised from iMvula and local business more is required to install a first rate system. We are in need of support and ask you please to donate to this worthy project. Whilst any amount would be appreciated, we suggest a donation of R 1000 to be made to this project to enable us to install the booms.
