The Kirstenhof Crime Watch camera on the corner of Lente and Tokai Roads, has already played an integral part in the arrests of suspects in incidents of crime and to support the expansion drive of the KCW, Chas Everitt has as a committed local business and indeed a commercial resident in the area donated a R3000 shortfall to finance an additional camera.
According to Andre de Villiers of Chas Everitt’s Kirstenhof / Tokai office (opposite the BP Garage on Tokai Road) it is crucial that all local businesses assist to the extent they can in these efforts as criminal activity has reached a point in the area where unless addressed it could affect property values negatively.
The efforts of the dedicated and hard working team at KCW are a credit to the area, and we can also be very pleased to have a responsive local police station where there is an excellent relationship with the community.
As estate agents active in the Constantiaberg area we have seen many examples where the community has stood together taken back “their streets” and as criminal activity is brought under control prices swing up again. One of the first questions buyers have today about every property is “what is the crime like in this neighbourhood?” It is thus in the interest of every property and business owner to stand together and take the issue of crime very seriously as it impacts substantially and directly on the asset value of property as well as lifestyles of residents.
