Blow your whistle!

The SRBID joined the Upper Eastside Hotel in conjunction with Woodstock SAPS and Metro Police in implementing a Whistle Blow Campaign. This venture aims to ensure a safe environment for the public within the boundaries of the SRBID, especially factory workers, hotel and restaurant staff that work different hours than normal daytime working hours. During the launch campaign members of the public were equipped with whistles which they can use when they find themselves in life threatening situations. Altogether 30 whistles were distributed to at the launch of the initiative. This is an ongoing campaign and whistles will be distributed on a monthly basis in the SRBID area.


At the launch of the Whistle Blow Campaign are from the left officer Julian Fortuin from Metro Police, Melvin Myburgh SRBID Manager, Caroline Coates from DoubleTree by Hilton Cape Town Upper Eastside, Aswin Jack, SRBID Public Safety Manager and the Security Manager of the DoubleTree by Hilton Cape Town Upper Eastside.
