WhatsApp Security Groups

There are more than a dozen WhatsApp Security Groups, each covering a small number of adjacent roads. The group moderators nesure that ony security related messages are posted, so they are always relevant. Many groups also run a parallel social or chat group.

The login of this micro-group approach is so that residents don;t need to ‘mute’ the security groups since anything posted on there is somewthingtnat they want to know about: it will be security related and wil be nearby. Many residents are memebrs of more than one group.

Each of those groups will also include at least one member of the NRA’s volunteer security team. In this way local posts can be reposted to other groups if necessary.

There is also a closed WhatsApp group for the seucity team, the Community PAtrollers, private security and our equivalent representatives recirty reps from Fernwood, Claremont, Rondebosch and Upper Claremont.

If you aren’t part of your street’s WhatsApp Security Group yet, and you don’t know who to contact, please contact us on security@newlandsresidents.org.za and we will put you in contact with the correct person.
