Safety and Security is key to the success of the VRCID. The VRCID works in partnership with the South African Police Service (Bellville and Parow) and all Policing services of the City of Cape Town (Metro Police, Law Enforcement and Traffic services).  The VRCID also employs 2 dedicated Law Enforcement Officers who together with the VRCID, enforces the City’s bylaws.

It is however important to remember that the VRCID only provides over and above services to those of the above-mentioned.

Our full-time Precinct Managers oversee the contracted Public Safety Officers (PSO’s) in partnership with the appointed service provider.  As part of their daily job description, the Precinct Managers ensure that the PSO’s are deployed to certain hot-spot areas.

The VRCID also works in close partnership with both the Bellville and Parow Community Police Forums and local Neighbourhood Watches.  Crime prevention operations are conducted on a regular basis with these organisations.

All VRCID PSO’s clearly visible in their distinctive uniforms and vehicles which are also branded.  The PSO’s patrol the VRCID on a 24hour basis, either on foot or by patrol vehicle.  The VRCID has a 24hour control room which is accessible to all VRCID levy payers.  There are also 3 mobile security trailers positioned across the VRCID which acts as a crime deterrent.
