Franskraal Neighbourhood Watch

Franskraal Buurtwag is an accredited neighbourhood watch run by volunteers in the community. Funded by its members and donations from the public, Franskraal Buurtwag provides a visible presence to help crime prevention in an area that stretches from Van Dyk Street to Elana Crescent. Franskraal Buurtwag works closely with local security companies and the South African Police, providing regular feedback on incidents it observes on patrol. For maximum efficiency, an interactive WhatsApp group run by residents in the Buurtwag area broadcasts neighbourhood goings-on in real-time as they happen. Franskraal Buurtwag invites you to join them so that you can work with your neighbours to make the streets a safer place for everyone.
