The Past 7 Days Records Highest Incidents Since Start Of The Lockdown
This week has brought upon the highest amount of positive incidents since the National Lockdown began. Burglaries have stayed constant, the increase has come mainly from incidents of theft, robbery of persons and from medical emergencies.
This increase tells a story of desperation, people are unable to earn money so they have to turn to crimes of opportunity to put food on the table. Make sure that you have sufficient protection in your yard, an alarm system that only monitors the interior of your premises isn’t enough anymore. Beams and CCTV are great additional layers to sufficiently secure your property.
The incidents of Robbery of Person have seen the suspects being armed, so when exercising between 6am and 9am, it is critical to constantly be aware of your surroundings. It is a great positive that there are many people out during this time as there is safety in numbers, but keep in mind that more people on the streets makes it easier for criminals to blend into the chaos.
