This weekend saw 13 burglaries, 1 Armed Robbery and 2 theft incidents. These were only a few of the more serious crimes committed. Walmer suffered the most crime during this weekend. Walmer, for operational purposes are split into two, that being “Upper Walmer” which is an Atlas Security DPS area, this means the area is covered by the infrastructure of CCTV cameras, a dedicated Armed Response vehicle in the area, while “Walmer South” is where most of the crime is happening, domestic and commercial properties have been affected.
Atlas Security had successes this weekend – Atlas Security Armed Response officers made a total of FOUR arrests:
• Two arrests in South End
• One arrest in Despatch
• One arrest in Uitenhage
Areas where break-ins or attempted break-ins occurred:
• Newton Park
• Parsons Ridge
• North End
We urge all clients to make sure that someone is always on site when an arrest is made – if no one is there or willing to open a case a suspect can be let free. In order to reduce the crime in our City and maintain it we need the co-operation of all parties involved.
We trust that as the end of the month approaches us, all businesses and persons handling cash stay vigilant. Perpetrators are hungry for anything they can get their hands on, lets us always stay one step ahead!
Rest assured your world is secure in Atlas Security’ hands
