“Future City Fourways’ Operation Clean Bridge, a 500-people-strong cleaning and security blitz on William Nicol Drive and at Witkoppen Bridge on 12 March, was an event unparalleled by any other clean-up in Fourways and was a milestone for Future City,” says Future City director Susan Mottram, co-organiser of the event with fellow director Advocate Jean Berdou.

Douglasdale Community Policing Forum ('CPF") is delighted to announce, following on the heels of the announcement concerning the granting of authority to train and deploy 250 Community Patrollers ("Patrollers") to boost the area security and traffic management in the Douglasdale South African Police Service ("SAPS") precinct, that the Douglasdale CPF has concluded and signed a detailed Memorandum of Understanding ("MOU") with the Johannesburg Metro Police Department ("JMPD"), a first with a CPF as far as can be ascertained.
Since the initial announcement of the plans to recruit, train equip and deploy 250 Community Patrollers in the SAPS Douglasdale precinct and the appeal for corporate sponsorships and support, response from our community has been incredible.
