MHSI is registered as a non-profit organisation with the following goals:

  • - to make residents aware of the types of crime occurring in this suburb
  • - to make residents aware of safety measures they can implement
  • - to focus on preventative measures to fight crime
  • - to drive special security related projects in the area
  • - to support security providers operating in the area
  • - to build a connected and caring community neighbourhood


The Muckleneuk Hill Security Initiative was officially started in March 2013 when a few residents got together to address the increasing crime problem in the area. This is an initiative driven by residents to improve safety in the suburb and is run on a purely voluntary basis.

Community driven security initiatives elsewhere have successfully proven to:

  • - Make residents feel safer
  • - Dramatically reduce crime incidences (some to zero)
  • - Increase property values

The steering committee gained knowledge from other neighbourhoods which had successfully implemented schemes to combat crime and believe that a scheme like this in our neighbourhood could produce similar results. The success would depend on the amount of support from the residents.
