National Lockdown Home Safety Tips

Private security companies have been deemed essential services and are mobile during the COVID-19 lockdown period. This means that Atlas Security will be responding to alarms and calls that come in from our clients, as per normal.

Through this extremely sensitive time, it’s no secret that many people’s livelihoods are being negatively affected as salaries are being cut (if even being paid at all), businesses are shutting down, tradesmen and women are unable to service any clients, resulting in no income for them. The list can go on for a while on the negative impacts of the economic standing of people in all corners of the globe. This negative effect, understandably, leads to people needing to conserve the money that they have left, as it is unclear when the financial climate will begin to correct itself.  

The first way of saving money is to stop spending it on luxuries in life, but what are the luxuries and what are the necessities? Before deciding what to cut out of the budget, one needs to determine what exactly qualifies as a need and what qualifies as a want. And we’re not just saying this, but the reality is that having an Armed Response Service is a non-negotiable. 

South Africa is a country with a very high crime rate, alongside a very high unemployment rate. Many people have no choice but to turn to crime as they don’t know where their next meal will come from, or how they will pay school fees at the end of the month. For many criminals, the life of crime is all they know, the crime rate won’t suddenly drop due to the National Lockdown. To people who lead a life of crime, they need to ‘work’ just as everyone in this world does. The criminal industry doesn’t give its employees paid leave, there is no shutdown period. For criminals, it is as simple as “No Work, No Pay”. So, expecting your belongings to be safer during the National Lockdown is a myth. The current prediction is that criminals are also in unchartered territories, they too are laying low, for now, reading the situation and reassessing their marks and opportunities, as their way of doing things also needs to change in the National Lockdown.

The need for an Armed Response Service is, if anything, more important to have during the National Lockdown. Businesses are standing unmanned with valuable stock; one can simply not afford to have this unprotected. Several arrests have already been made due to criminals attempting to steal stock from closed businesses and we have no doubt that it will continue.

WHAT IS A HOUSE ROBBERY?

A house robbery is defined as the situation when suspects break into a residence while the occupants are home. It is a very dangerous situation as adrenalin levels are high and that is when decisions that result in either life or death need to be made within split seconds, as more often than not the suspects are armed with various weapons.
