WCID CONTROL ROOM EMERGENCY NUMBERS: 086 1212 315 / 086 1212 608

Through the CID, fencing certain open areas and monitoring access points as well as expanding the camera network into the neighbourhood to provide better surveillance and monitoring can be achieved and the cost of attaining this will be fairly distributed across all in the neighbourhood.
