Dear Community Members
The UCSI NPC in conjunction with SACAN TrackBox Technologies, SNIPR, SAPS Law Enforcement Officials, uMngeni Traffic Officials, uMngeni Municipal Role-players, DOT and numerous other local organisations held an Operations Demonstration on the 28th November 2019 to showcase the role the UCSI has had on vehicle-related crime prevention in the uMngeni Municipal area over the past year.
It must be noted that this was a “mock hi-jacking” Operations Demo and all role-players were briefed on the operation details beforehand. The reason for the demonstration was to show the JB Marks Municipal Officials from the Potchefstroom area of the North West Province what has been successfully established in our uMngeni community, by our community and for our community.
The following YouTube presentation (click on the link below) has been put together by SNIPR to show the Operations Demo from start to finish, for educational and promotional purposes.
A HUGE thank you needs to be given to Brian Jones (CEO of SACAN TrackBox Technologies) for helping make this all happen and for flying the helicopter, alongside Starlite Aviation, so that we could capture the footage from the air. Brian has been instrumental in introducing SNIPR to the UCSI and supporting all our community efforts to date. Brian continues to work tirelessly behind the scenes to make our country a safer place to live.
The UCSI would also like to thank the following entities that have contributed CAPEX over the past 5 months to the establishment of the now 18+ gantries in our local areas that are feeding into the UCSI SNIPR network. They include: iUncapped, The Hilton Community Security Initiative (HCSI), the Hilton Rate Payers Association (HRA), Howick Districts Landowners Association (HDLA), Fairfield Dairy, Voigts Property Group, ANEW Hilton Hotel, Fogden Properties, Sakabula Estate, Midmar Building Supplies, Gurtech, J Leslie Smith Attorneys, Rotunda, Cowan House, Wedgewood, Broadacres, Frosties, Mills Fitchet, Falcon and many private individuals and business entities that are contributing OPEX so that the UCSI remains sustainable.
We do need to still grow monthly OPEX contributions – and do have the CAPEX to get at least another 2 gantries erected – but can’t do so until we know that they are financially sustainable on a monthly basis.
How can you get involved?
Please join the UCSI as an OPEX contributing member. Email email@example.com or call 063 068 9652 for more information on how to join and make a contribution. Private individuals from R50pm and business entities from R300pm.
The gantry located at the Midmar Dam off ramp of the N3 heading towards the R103 (gateway to the Midlands) and Solitree Road (Howick West) has advertising space available on it. The cost to advertise at this prime location is R20 000.00 once-off and you can receive a Section 18A certificate. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
