This week Monty Montgomery, Atlas Operations Manager emphasizes the importance of opening a case with the Police after a crime has been committed. It has come to light that residents are hesitant to open cases with the Police, merely disappear from crime scenes and do not even bother to report what happened. In other instances, the Police have to release arrested villains due to victims opting not to open a case. The repercussions of these actions send out a clear message to criminals.

Monty warns that front door breaks have become more and more commonplace in the Nelson Mandela Bay. These gangs are now targeting more than just plasma TV’s and they are still in and out of homes within minutes. Residents (witnesses) are seeing ‘teams’ of burglars carrying out these robberies, and much like the movies, they ‘employ’ experts who specialize in various burglary tactics. Each criminal then enters a different room to loot thus tremendously increasing the loss.
We strongly advise that you re-evaluate the strength and sturdiness of your security gate, to avoid becoming a victim of this syndicate. Monty urges all residents for assistance in order to make more arrests. He warns that these gangs are professionals who are armed most of the time. Do not approach them but rather report it immediately.
He advises residents to add security gates inside – in strategic places, cordoning off where your valuables are kept. In conjunction with this – add extra magnetic contacts and passives to your alarm system, which will send multiple signals should an invasion take place. Contact us on 0861 585 585 or email us firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on this.
He also warns that burglars are returning to sites on more than one occasion, and urges residents and business owners to beef up their security after an intrusion. Owners must realize that these robbers know your security set up and are fully aware that you will replace your stolen items in due time. Monty reminds readers that criminals always attempt to disable the alarm system prior to proceeding further into the building itself. Make sure that burglars cannot get to the heart of your alarm system.
On a very serious note, Monty reports that we’re focussing on the elderly, scholars/students and shoppers. They are extremely vulnerable and need to be looked after. These crimes should be avoided all together.
Theft of and theft out of motor vehicles is an extremely hot topic. Motorists are still leaving their valuables in their cars. You are not only inviting bad elements into your area, but you are also making yourself a target. Recently golf bags, laptops, jewellery and other valuables were stolen out of vehicles.
Cash in transit robberies are becoming a regular occurrence too. Monty urges shoppers and pedestrians to be careful. Should you be caught up in a cash in transit robbery, take cover until it’s safe.
Monty issues a final reminder to shoppers to park their vehicles in safe areas. Park as close to the shops as possible. Know that criminals are watching you and will strike when you’re distracted. Be aware of your surroundings at all times.
Stay safe and rest assured that your world is safe in Atlas’ hands.
