On 16 January 2012 when the Groote Schuur CID’s Annual General Meeting took place, the GSCID was complimented by property owners, others and especially Colonel A.J Botha, the local Cluster Commander of local SAPS operations. He confirmed that crime was markedly down but due to the current moratorium on the release of crime figures, he could not give details.

Another important meeting was the high profile UCT Safety and Security Task Team, which took place on 2 July 2012 at the Western Cape Provincial Buildings and was chaired by Premier Helen Zille. Provincial Government MECs and senior officials, City of Cape Town MAYCO members and Ward Councillors, SAPS and other officials were present. Prof Danie Visser and Mr. John Critien represented UCT.

The Premier personally thanked the Groote Schuur CID and congratulated the Chief Executive Officer for excellent work done. Furthermore, she personally took the trouble to send a congratulatory email to the GSCID Operations Manager, Charl Brooks. (See story overleaf).
