This past week saw a spike in theft out of motor vehicles as reported by Atlas Security Operations Manager, Monty Montgomery. This crime happens very quickly and is rife at the moment. They are taking place outside homes, along the beach front, at restaurants and shops.
To avoid the above mentioned incidents, Monty urges residents to ensure that their gates are secured and always locked. Do not leave valuables visible in your vehicle.
Do not let negligence cost you your life.Sadly front door kickers are increasing their activities in the Bay. House breakings during day time are also very high – secure your premises and arm your alarms. Monty reminds residents to be alert. When you arrive home – look around before you enter your house. Residents and business owners are advised to beef up their security – muggings are happening right in front of premises.
When your domestic worker is alone at home, advise her not to investigate strange noises – rather press the panic button or check cautiously without putting anyone’s’ life in danger.
All the measures you take to protect your family are as good as the security disciplines you and your family have. For example, a security gate is useless unless it is locked and the key is removed and secured! A series of small, but useful routines, correctly and conscientiously followed, will ensure that your overall security is the best it can be.
Monty issues a vital plea to readers to add extra protection to bathrooms. The most popular occurrence is criminals breaking into non alarmed areas – being ceilings, bathrooms, porches,garages and interleading doors. The criminals tend to hang around there to plan their next move. What he’s emphasizing is – if entry is gained into an area that’s not protected, always make sure that you have protection in place where the criminals will next move to.
Business owners take note: Monty urges all businesses to secure properties and ensure that they are well lit up.
Lastly Monty reminds readers to keel their neighbourhoods safe.Residents should continue to be the eyes and ears on the ground and report all crimes to ATLAS or the police. This definitely helps to minimise the loss suffered by the home or business owner. Make it difficult for criminals to function in your neighbourhood!
Report any suspicious persons or activities to ATLAS or the police immediately, stay safe and rest assured that your world is safe in Atlas’ hands.
