Will the CID be in a position to operate road closure points at the entry/exit roads to Camps Bay at certain times, to deter, monitor criminal vehicles, assist neighbouring suburbs with their crime?

Any CID has limited powers and cannot shut down roads without the authority of a primary agency. Joint agency operations will be negotiated with Primary agencies such as SAPS and City to conduct Vehicle Check Points and roadblocks providing logistical support for these type of operations which ordinarily would not occur due to lack of resources.

Subject to consultation and the business plan, we would anticipate License Plate Recognition (LPR) cameras at all entry points to Camps Bay, and other strategic locations within the suburb, linked to the City-wide database so that all known suspicious vehicles entering will be immediately flagged, tracked and intercepted. The Steering Committee also will investigate other technological solutions to ‘virtually’ manage perimeter security.
