The Directors of the CBCID are pleased to announce the appointment of Kyle Visagie as CID Operations Manager.

Kyle joins us from the Northpine CID, where he until recently served as Operations Manager. Kyle was a volunteer member of the team that established the Northpine CID and will remain a Director of the Northpine CID NPC, responsible for their Urban Management and Social Development portfolios.

In addition to Kyle’s experience in CID operations, his academic qualifications (BA in Psychology) and prior work experience (various Corporate Social Investment roles) will stand him in good stead for implementing and overseeing the CBCID’s integrated and holistic Social Development programmes.

Appointment of Public Safety Manager

3 July 2024

The Directors of the CBCID are pleased to announce the appointment of Ty Watts as CID Public Safety Manager.

Ty will be a familiar face to many Camps Bay residents from his role as Operations Manager for CBCSI for the past 4 years. For the next few months during the period in which CBCSI will be phased out in favour of the CID, Ty will continue to hold his CBCSI role also.

Ty brings to the Camps Bay CID a strong public safety and security background and network, plus invaluable knowledge and understanding of Camps Bay and its unique public safety and security concerns. The Board welcomes Ty to the CBCID and looks forward to assisting him in delivering a seamless transition from CBCSI to the CBCID.

CBCID live with dedicated LE Officers!

1 July 2024

The Directors of the CBCID are pleased to announce that the CID is now live with our very own dedicated Law Enforcement Officers!

In the initial phase, during which time the new LEOs will be trained and oriented towards the specific needs of Camps Bay, officers will be on duty during daylight hours only, seven days a week.

In due course and once training is completed, they will transition to 24/7/365.

Until such time as the CID Control Room is live, incidents requiring the attention of Law Enforcement Officers can be reported to the CBCSI Control Room at 021-438-2000.

CID implementation update

29 June 2024

The CID levy will be included in property owners’ City of Cape Town municipal invoices from July onwards and the CID will be officially live from Monday 1 July.

The CID team are actively engaged with potential suppliers via a formal RFQ (Request For Quotations) process.

Depending on the progress and outcomes of the RFQ process, we anticipate a gradual roll-out of services, ramping up to full capacity in advance of the summer season. More details will be communicated in due course.

The CID team and CBCSI are working closely together to ensure a smooth transition, with CBCSI expected to wind up once the CID’s public safety functions are operational.

Until then, the CBCSI Control Room remains available at 021-438-2000 for assistance with any matters related to public safety or municipal services.
