The Muizenberg Community Safety Initiative (MCSI) will be holding a Big Safety Day Out at Muizenberg Beach on Saturday December 16, Day of Reconciliation, from 2pm.
There will be a working dog demo by the SAPS K9 Unit; a
sea rescue demo by NSRI, as well as a chance to fingerprint your child with the Pink Ladies / SAPS “My Little Fingerprints” project.
The idea is to provide beach-goers and Muizenberg residents health and holiday safety information and education; while at the same time putting on a great
show with loads of activities. It is also an opportunity to personally meet the crime fighters
and local heroes who volunteer their time to keep everyone safe.
There will be activities for children, food and drink on sale, wacky postcards and a chance to win prizes in a lucky draw competition.
Henrik Daugbjerg, chairman of MCSI, said: “It’s the perfect way to interact with the community – so many people come to the beach on this day, and apart from providing entertainment, it’s a great opportunity to get to know your local security company and even to sign up and become a member of your local neighbourhood watch,” he said.
All funds raised will go towards equipping the neighbourhood watch teams and funding additional License Plate Recognition (LPR) cameras to bolster safety in the area.
The aim is to build a network that will allow integration into the local Ward 64 camera network. “This technology has been a big win in surrounding areas,” said Mr Daugbjerg.
