General Questions

  1. What does MCNW do?

    • The Milnerton Central Neighbourhood Watch (MCNW) is the eyes and ears of the community. Working closely with the South African Police Service (SAPS) and Community Police Forum (CPF), the MCNW observes and reports criminal activity and is also involved with other activities including operations, visible patrolling, static patrolling and otherwise assisting SAPS in any way required.

  2. What area does MCNW cover?

    • We've got a great sector map that shows you what area is covered by MCNW.

  3. How is the Community Police Forum related to MCNW?

    • The Community Police Forum (CPF) is a mechanism through which the community aims to ensure police accountability, transparency, and effectiveness in the community. CPFs are established in terms of section 19(1) of the S.A.P. S. Act, Act 68 of 1995. For more details take a look here.

  4. How is Milnerton Crime Watch related to MCNW?

    • Milnerton Crime Watch Trust is an armed response organisation operating in the area. You will most likely recognise them by the black and yellow cars.
