The Area

The proposed LMRID area encompasses the two areas currently managed by two neighbourhood watches that have been active in the area for many years.  On the North of Durban Road is the area under the Little Mowbray Neighbourhood Watch and on the South of Durban Road is the area under the Rosebank Neighbourood Watch.

So, the LMRID area is bounded on the South, by Alma Road, on the West by Liesbeek Parkway, no the North by the N2 / M5 highways and on the East by the M5 and Rondebosch Common.

The area is predominantly residential, but with a commercial component along Durban Road together with the Office Park on the North Western boundary.

  1. Good Afternoon

    Can you please direct to me the improvements district that falls on the other side of Liesbeeck being Selby Road??

    Thank you

    1. There is no SRA in that area however there is a neighbourhood watch. I am not sure how you can get in touch with them – will try to find details for you.

      1. Hi Gill,
        There are several possible explanations for a LMRID vehicle to be outside the LMRID boundary.
        a) The LMRID patrol officers attend a daily briefing at Mowbray SAPS (Main Road)
        b) Each patrol (12 hour shift) gets a “lunch break” and two short comfort breaks during the shift, for which they report to the LMRID control room (Main Road Mowbray)
        c) The security provider has an account at a specific petrol station on Main Road for refuelling the vehicles.
        The board has decided that (given the likelyhood of crime cross-over between our area and the main public transport interchanges in Mowbray) when a LMRID vehicle needs to travel from our area to Main Road it would be good to take the back roads to get there rather than simply blasting up Durban Road every time.
        There is also the possibility for our vehicles will leave the specific LMRID bounded area in pursuit of a suspect.

        In the instance you cite, the patrol vehicle was en-route to a SAPS briefing.
