Imperial Armour supports South African Community Crime Watch
SACCW was formulated mid 2012 by myself, Steven King. Services then comprised only of relaying criminal events and warnings to a very small member base of 1600 via BBM. Relationships were built with SAPS and associated law services and as information relayed to members and public became more pertinent so our growth spurt began, with SAPS, Metro and vehicle tracking companies relying more and more on our members for information. By end 2013 SACCW alone had put together and assisted in 82 arrests, ranging from suspects wanted for armed robbery, vehicle theft, child kidnapping, tax fraud all the way down to petty theft. Today we are a well respected crime fighting and community support unit and also one of the biggest in the country with a network second to none.
Our member base has grown to more than
140 000 and our operational structure has grown with representatives in all 9 provinces.
S.A. C.A.R.E.S consist of the following divisions:
K9 Search and Rescue
Missing Children/Persons Retrieval Unit
Community Support All Levels
Cell phone panic button.
24hr control room.
Medical Call Assist – In Partnership with ER24
All SACCW personnel (22) are field active responding to members in need 24/7. We are passionate about our service and all our volunteers are selected with great care.
