Are you prepared for the silly season?

Monty Montgomery, Atlas Security Operations Manager reports that the silly season is upon us. Are you ready for the buzz? Are you going away or staying home? Either way, you will still need the best protection in place for your family and possessions.

All the necessary final briefings and plans are in place to get through the next 60 days. Atlas Security Operations team and SAPS are ready to have successful festive season. Our mission is to combat crime in our city and allow residents to go about their festivities safely. SAPS and Atlas are ready for upcoming silly season. Its the season for giving but criminals will be taking. Make sure you’re covered with adequate protection. Invest in your safety and Security. Have measures in place.

This can only be achieved with team effort. Everyone plays a vital part to keep our city safe. Remember – if your child/family member invites drugs into your area and home – it leads to crime.

We request that community all keep up the assistance with sharing of good accurate information. This could save your neighbours life and minimize you loss but most of all, assist Atlas Security Response Officers to make arrests. Let’s put these thugs behind bars where they belong.

Theft out of motor vehicles and outbuildings are still extremely high as well as theft from persons. Avoid being lured and be alert. Home invasions are still ongoing entry points windows and doors. Have double protection in place when it comes to your entry point, with a short delay on your alarm.

Businesses as well as our industrial sites are targeted at the moment. Security guards were recently attacked during a recent burglary. Know that these criminals are brazen and will go to extreme lengths to get what they want. Our biggest concern is still armed robberies as well as house robberies please take extra care when securing for the bed time.

Lastly, be aware of your surroundings and the people around you. Wherever you are, on the street, in an office building or shopping malls, driving or waiting for a bus at a stop, stay alert. Stay safe and rest assured, your world is secure in Atlas’ hands.
