Forest Hills 1st Hill
Keeping crime at bay
As with similar efforts in other areas, Forest Hill 1st Hill Community Watch is an initiative driven by the residents and has been active since 2012 working to minimise crime in the area. Other than the community involvement and geographical advantage of being on a hill surrounded by deep valleys on both sides, the security is further enhanced through the successful partnership between the Community Watch and our preferred security provider, Blue Security.
We aim to create good neighbourly relations within the area to encourage community involvement in the reduction of criminal activty on our hill. Through community awareness and involvement, Forest Hills 1 has had a small number of reported incidents over the years compared to other neighbouring areas.
Through the partnership with Blue Security, a dedicated Armed Response Officer and patrol vehicle are operational in the area on a 24 hour basis. Further to the active policing, the installation of ANPR and CCTV cameras as part of the larger Blue Security CFW initiative allows remote surveillance of activity in the area.
Other than the security aspects of the area, the Community Watch attempts to instill a general community spirit in the area.
In the heart of our community lies the Forest Hills Sports Club. The club provides facilities for residents and visitors to particpate in various sporting and social events throughout the year.
Other than facilities which are available for athletics, cricket, soccer, rugby & tennis, there is also the club house with bar facilities which can be hired for social events.
