Our response officers together with the SAPS arrested 6 suspects this week. We urge anyone who ever witnesses an incident to always take note of the description of the vehicle or suspects. This assists all involved in helping track down the thieves.

There has been quite a spike in the amount of armed robberies of members of the public. If you aware of your surroundings and any suspicious behaviour, you could potentially stop a traumatic event from happening. Stay in groups and know what your vulnerable areas are.

If you do not have a masterlock yet, please call us today and find out more about this security measure. This could decrease the possibility of the Armed Response not being able to get into your property to check your premises or in case of a medical emergency.

The importance of being able to check premises correctly and not have any delays with a medical emergency is very important. We cannot expect our response officers to get a stretcher over a 6ft wall with electric fencing.
