Charl Brooks, GSCID Operations Manager


Operations Manager for the GSCID, Charl Brooks, has been in the security industry since early 2000. Working his way through the ranks, he gained valuable experience with Gray Security, G4S and then with Orbis Security Services as Contracts Manager to the Claremont Improvement District Company and now, in his present post, as Operations Manager for the GSCID.

“Normal work hours are rare,” says Brooks, “as security operations are often conducted at night, together with social outreach initiatives while interacting with the homeless. Random and regular co-operative operations are also conducted in partnership with SAPS and Law Enforcement.”

“It is particularly gratifying,” remarks Brooks, “that the SAPS have recognised the GSCID team as a valuable resource in a co-operative effort to combat crime. We have recently experienced an increase in thefts from motor vehicles in the area and are taking every step to prevent this, but in my view, one incident is one too many.”

Clearly passionate about his work, Brooks believes strongly in team work and in their support to achieve their objective of reducing crime in the area.
