KSS Incidents 17 – 25 April 2018

Dear KSS Clients

KSS Operations staff have had a rewarding and productive week. Armed Reaction Officers have been proactive with patrolling and a five (5) suspects were apprehended by observant KSS Officers, and handed over to the relevant SAPS. This is a wonderful collective effort by all KSS staff.

KSS also attended to a number of break-ins to unalarmed outbuildings. Please may we recommend that outbuildings are alarmed to ensure early detection of intruders.

Again, copper theft is a serious concern. Please report these thefts to your local SAPS.

There were 9 incidents in Howick (6 business and 3 residential), 3 incidents in Howick West (all residential), 6 in Merrivale (5 residential and 1 business) and 1 in the outer areas. There were none reported to KSS in the Hilton area.

The KSS Controllers in our 24/7 Control Room are the unsung heroes of making sure that criminal, medical, fire and emergency related incidents are dealt with in a professional and timeous manner. We have worked hard in training and sourcing the best controllers in the Midlands and are very proud of our competent team.

“You are safe with us”!
