About Us

The Parklands Neighbourhood Watch (PNW) was formed in early 2014 by a group of residents in the Parklands/Sunningdale area. This was initiated by the concern created from the high crime statistics in our immediate community and the belief that a smaller, more focused area needed to be covered by PNW. This would allow for the micro management of crime and contributing issues in our area. In a very short period of time, PNW has grown extensively with the support of its dedicated members and in partnership with the SAPS, Community Police Forum, Department of Community Safety, City of Cape Town, Law Enforcement, Metro, Traffic, Local Medical Services and Local Security Companies.

We have our own privately owned two way radio system which enables members to be radio linked 24/7, with a panic button feature for members. This panic button system allows us to identify a specific member when activated in case of an emergency as well as provide GPS co-ordinates for that member.

PNW run a Telegram channel with push notifications, via cell phone, which is open to the general public. You receive alerts, notifications, SAPS media releases, information from the CoCT, PNW daily incident reports etc. To join, click the following link.


The Parklands Neighbourhood Watch has a 24/7 monitored cell phone number. Please SAVE THIS NUMBER ON YOUR CELL PHONE – 079 453 7420, and feel free to call it at anytime.

We also supply PNW home sign boards – these are available to the general public that are resident in our operational area.  Please email secretary@pnwatch.co.za to request your board. They are supplied and installed by the Watch at a minimal cost.
