High-risk Times: 4:30 am to 10 am and 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm, both of these periods are the trails highest use times and provide opportunities for criminals to take advantage of low light conditions.
When using the trails:
In the worst-case scenario:
Having eyes and ears on the trail during peak visitor times is one of the many ways we’re ramping up safety. To start with, we’ve employed four security guards we call JT Bobbies to patrol the whole phase 1 area (from Conrad Drive to Emmerentia, including Delta Park) from 6am to 6pm on weekends. They are easy to spot, on their JT bikes (sponsored by Trek), wearing 24/7 Security uniform with a Jozi Trails logo on the front and they’ll be happy to assist if you need directions, advice or any other help.
24/7 Security, CAP and Beagle Watch Armed Response have joined forces to help fight crime on the Spruit. The companies regularly station their guards, cars, horses and bikes to patrol Delta Park, Emmarentia, Conrad Drive and Alberts farm. A massive thank you to these three competing companies for coming together for the cause.
