A Connected Community Is A Safe Community!

The Oranjezicht Higgovale community standing together.

About OH Watch

We live in a beautiful neighbourhood. As residents we have a duty to keep our area safe, so that we can enjoy the tree-lined streets and parks more fully. That is why a group of dedicated residents established OH Watch in 2008 – a community driven platform that ensures effective and quick response to criminal activity and ensures that members of the community are empowered with information via well developed communication channels. We are socially responsible and do whatever is needed to make our area a joy to live and work in.

Objectives

Observe

Members of the community volunteer their time to patrol or simply static observation from their homes.

Communicate

Good communication with emergency services means swift effective reaction to crime and other emergencies such as fires, accidents and more.

Co-ordinate

With SAPS, Law Enforcement and other authorities to assist in the policing and to manage a swift, co-ordinated and effective security network.

Report A Crime

Once you have reported an incident or emergency to the authorities (or via Watchcom), please return to our website and let us collect this information – this will allow us to create a comprehensive database of crime in our neighbourhood which is paramount to deploying resources effectively.
