Eagle Eye Neighbourhood Watch in Eagle Park is on its feet to ensure residents are kept safe.

The local group hosted one of many fund­raising mini-events on Friday night. The chairperson of the group, Zaid Allie, says funds are needed to cover the cost of the various equipment items needed while on patrol.

“These funds are used for our weekly petrol, uniforms for volunteers, radios, sign boards, stickers and other necessary tools,” he says.

“Our aims are to keep our community free from any gangsterism and drugs as our neighbourhood watch does not tolerate any of these activities. We want to drop crime to 0% in this area,” says Allie. “Some of our challenges that we are faced in our community are normally drug related and home break-ins. We also have parents who do not want to acknowledge their kids’ mistakes, and we plan to eliminate all of these issues.”

Allie says there is an urgent need for more volunteers in the area.

“We need the community to come on board in order to have a full seven-day programme. The support from our people is very poor at the moment. We have the same volunteers on duty all the time and need to increase in numbers to ensure each section of the area is secured day and night.”
