Operations Manager, Monty Montgomery says “Despite the efforts of a number of role players, crime is escalating which is a concern leading into the festive season as December and January are traditionally busy months as criminals take advantage of businesses that are closed and home owners that are away for the holidays. We encourage you to do a full assessment of your alarm now and fix or repair any zones that are not working. Please call us when you have a false alarm, false alarms take resources from someone who may be in crisis. Please test your system at least once per month”
