Despite the heavy rainfall, we were still on top of things the past few days. The Easter weekend was made up of successful arrests and recoveries of many stolen goods. Good team effort was played off by Atlas Security and the Police which lead to positive arrests in the Metro.

Whilst there have been increased incidents of intrusions, this past week has also seen numerous successes with arrests. Quick reaction has resulted in attempted burglaries with no loss and the retrieval of stolen goods, however we would like to stress the importance of being security conscious at all times and registering a case if you have indeed been a victim of a crime.
Monty warns readers who park their vehicles at night, be vigilant while traveling as theft out of motor vehicles and theft of motor vehicles is still out of hand in our city. Do you think and observe before you park? Or are you in “autopilot mode?” Stop and think before you park – rather safe than sorry.
Roof break-ins are on the rise in the Metro, an increasingly common modus oprandi is for the intruder to gain access to the premises via your roof, thereby attempting to bypass or disable the alarm. Be warned and make sure that you’re covered. Look for those weak links in the chain. Contact Atlas on 0861 585 585 for a Security Professional to visit you and reassess your risk.
Monty reminds the community not to encourage confrontation with criminals, should they witness a crime taking place. Community safety always comes first. Note, that the criminals usually carry weapons (concealed) and they should not be approached. Rather alert the Police and your security company to investigate. The community’s role is to be the eyes and ears, not vigilante, this will rule out intimidation and victimizations.
We would like to warn all residents with bush in their surrounding area to be alert and aware. This week a resident sent a photo of a “shack” being erected in the bush near their suburb. Most suburbs that are surrounded by dense bushes have experienced crime. With the help of the Metro, Atlas Security ensures you that we are doing our best to clear the bush area. Please remember that where they re-establish themselves, the crime will increase. Be aware of your surroundings and take note of unfamiliar activity.
With winter knocking on our doors, days are getting colder and nights are longer. Although we would like to believe that the winter season will deter criminals completely, this is not the case. Nonetheless, crime still occurs no matter what season it is.
Stay safe and rest assured that your world is safe in Atlas’ hands.
