Welcome to TBKWatch

In the interests of a safe, sustainable area for ALL who live, work, invest and visit here.

The Tamboerskloof Neighbourhood Watch (TBKWatch) is a community organisation of local resident volunteers.

We work closely with the South African Police Service (SAPS), the Community Policing Forum (CPF), Metro law Enforcement, Local Authorities, formal Security Service Providers, other Neighbourhood Watches and our Community.

We are not a substitute for formal professional armed response and security measures in your own home.

The TBKWatch is run and structured in terms of the Western Cape Provincial Constitution and Code of Conduct for Neighbourhood Watch Structures (WCNWS).

  • If you experience a crime or attempt in our area, please open a case with SAPS and send details plus case number to TBKWatch.
  • To report suspect activities or situations requiring immediate police or emergency services response, please phone Watchcom (24hrs).
  • Registered TBKWatch members have access to our electronic and radio networks.
  • If you live in the area and would like to be part of the TBKWatch connected network and highly effective crime prevention infrastructure, fill in our Membership Form.

Applications are processed during office hours, membership is free and all activities are voluntary
