We are your Community Safety

Even if one builds a fortress, one still has to come and go from public space, and your security at home cannot transcend the security of the community in which it exists.

No one wants to feel unsafe outside of their home. Armed response doesn’t deal with this. The Camps Bay Community Safety Initiative does.

You are never as safe in your home as you think you are. Having the extra capability of CBCSI in our community is not only comforting, but is essential.

Armed response is not sufficient in an emergency. The one-guy-in-a-car needs a backup, assuming he arrives on time and everything works as planned. Camps Bay Community Safety Initiative is there when it doesn’t.

All the services provided by CBCSI are designed to prevent crime; armed response is designed to counter crime when it is occurring. Most would agree that prevention is better than drama!
