The Atlas Security Control Room reports 46 positive incidents this week. A higher crime rate appears to be the emerging trend post hard-lockdown, as predicted, given the many people that have lost their sources of income.
The total number of thefts point to people looking for quick things to steal and turn into cash.
Our Operations Team have been prepared for this since day 1, boasting another week of successes, Armed Response handed 11 suspects over to the SAPS. The Atlas Security Team have been out in full force on the roads with beefed up resources to ensure the safety of our clients. This is made possible by the fact that we have the largest Armed Response fleet in Nelson Mandela Bay. Various arrests this week were made possible by Armed Officers in pursuit receiving fast and reliable back-up from other Armed Officers and vehicles, done without compromising the safety and response times of neighbouring areas.
