The strength of the Green Point Neighbourhood Watch (GPNW) lies in its members and we cannot succeed without your support and active engagement.

Help us make our community safer – join us, support us and participate in our initiatives.

To qualify as a member, you need to be a resident, property owner or work in the area designated as Sector 1 of the SAPS Sea Point precinct. This includes all of Green Point between Boundary and Glengariff Roads, Three Anchor Bay between Hill and Glengariff Roads, and all of Mouille Point.

Joining is simple. All you need to do is complete a membership form and provide a copy of your identification document (SA ID document or passport) and proof of residence (copy of a utility or rate bill, bank statement, lease, etc.)

Just so you are aware, we rely on financial contributions to maintain the use of Buzzer and fund strategic initiatives such as the purchase of further LPR cameras, so even though annual membership fees are voluntary (the Western Cape Provincial Constitution and Code of Conduct for Neighbourhood Watch Structures prohibits mandatory membership fees), we urge all members to support the GPNW financially.
