The Benefits of OBSID



OBSID provides dedicated foot patrols in the area, supported by patrol vehicles and a central control room.

OBSID works together with the Woodstock Police, the Groote Schuur and Woodstock CIDs, the Observatory Neighbourhood Watch and Law Enforcement to reduce crime and establish a visible patrolling presence in all public spaces.


Public streets and spaces are cleaned 7 days a week, helping to reduce grime and litter. Graffiti in public spaces is removed. We have well established gardens in various spaces that are maintained by the OBSID team. We work with the City to ensure that public spaces, including parks and the village green, are well-maintained and safe.


Problems associated with homeless or displaced people are dealt with in a holistic way.


OBSID invites everyone in our local community, as well as the broader Cape Town
to propose ideas and to undertake heritage activation activities.
