Crime During The 21 Day Lockdown

The initial period of the National Lockdown has come to an end, and today marks the start of the extension. The effects on the people of our country in this National Lockdown are no doubt evident and the world’s economy is struggling. It is, however, a very necessary procedure as the sooner we can beat the COVID-19 virus, the sooner we can start to rebuild normality. 

Taking a look at how crime affected us since the start of the Lockdown, the prediction of empty businesses being the main target for criminals was correct with a massive 64% of incidents affecting commercial properties. Atlas Security continues to work harder than ever during this time with 20 arrests being made since lockdown started, this being the proof of our Warriors putting it all on the line to keep your world secure. 

Atlas Security is not immune to the effects on the National Lockdown, and there are various provisions that are constantly being made to ensure that resources are being effectively used to ensure that Atlas Security client’s safety is not compromised. Such as the restructuring of community groups, this is just one of the many adaptions being made. It needs to be emphasised that we are by no means leaving anyone out, we are still working hard in the communities with various stakeholders and neighbourhood watches to continue the fight against crime. 

Stay Safe!
