In 2019 we launched the Buzzer App in Camps Bay and Clifton.
This sophisticated phone app gives residents a panic button on their phone which directly connects them to our Control Room (CBCSI Control) and to close by neighbours who might also be able to offer assistance in an emergency. It can also be used to report suspicious activity, or to report fire, medical and municipal incidents that require a response.
We invite anyone living or spending time in Camps Bay to download this app to their phone from the website here.
This revolutionary community safety application is being used in many areas all over South Africa. This means that this app will work in areas outside of Camps Bay, including Hout Bay, Constantia, Sea Point.
This is the dedicated armed vehicle has two armed security officers who patrol the suburb 24/7/365.
We also provide backup for Fidelity ADT and Bay Response if there is an incident at your home and we maintain security for the common areas of our suburb – streets, parks, beachfront, green areas etc that are not covered by armed response. If you see someone suspicious in the street and report this to to CBCSI Control on 021-438-2000 and CBCSI Response will be directed to the area of the incident.
CBCSI Response does visible patrolling in high crime areas. This has been shown to effectively reduce crime.
CBCSI has assisted in installing and maintaining over 60 License Plate Recognition Cameras covering Camps Bay and Bakoven. Keeping the bandwidth running for these cameras is no small technical feat. We are also connected to a much larger group that covers the rest of the Western Cape which has proven many times over to be an effective method for catching criminals and later providing evidence for prosecution.
We also assist residents in specific areas to install their own street camera monitoring using the latest in artificial intelligence technology that recognises suspicious activity. CBCSI then provides the response to any alert received.
These street cameras have proven highly effective in preventing crimes before they happen and creating a deterrent for criminals as they can not pass through the area unnoticed.
CBCSI maintains a common radio network so that all resources can be coordinated. ADT, Bay Response, SAPS, Community Medics, CERT (Community Emergency Response Team), CBCSI Response and CBCSI Operational Command are all on the network, as well as community members who have purchased radios.
In our monthly newsletter (a free services to all residents) we give a breakdown of all reported incidents so that our community is aware of what the current safety concern is.

When there is a serious problem in the area – fire, flood, storm, riot etc. – we will send out updates as they happen, we use radio, community WhatsApp groups, Facebook, Buzzer and Twitter and reach thousands of residents quickly. CBCSI communicates with residents and gives them up to date communication to issues that directly affect their suburb.
When there are professional scammers working in Camps Bay and Clifton, in the form of ATM fraud, “tear drop” hitch hikers, Facebook scammers, “I have no petrol”, “Gardener from next door”, etc. We know them and will warn the community of their presence when they are in Camps Bay and Clifton through our Facebook page, Buzzer or WhatsApp, alerting residents to the area the scammer is working.
