Crime Report 28 February - 6 March 2018

Dear KSS Clients

March 2018 sees the 29th birthday of “KNIGHT” operating as a security service provider in the Midlands. Gary Preston, who now owns KSS, was the first employee of Knight Alarms in 1989 and installed the very first alarm in Howick. Thank you GARY, for everything you have done for the people of our community for the past 29 years of loyal, committed service.

General alarm system update
If you have an alarm system – please arm it when you are not at home, and then at night when you go to bed. Also consider alarming vulnerable outside areas like garages, sheds and storerooms. Your alarm is your eyes and ears when you are away, or when you are asleep. An alarm also allows your security company to respond immediately to an activation signal and attend to the situation.

Remember, that YOU also need to check that your alarm is working on a regular basis (every 3 months). How do you do this? Call the KSS Control Room and advise the controller that you want to test your alarm. The controller will then guide you through the process and confirm that a signal has been received in the Control Room. If not, then a job card will be made out and a technician will need to rectify the issue.

Parking cars outside at night
Please note that cars parked in the road or in driveways become an easy target for opportunistic criminals. There are external beams that one can put in place for early detection and to safe-guard your vehicle. Contact KSS on 033 3305911 if you would like to investigate this option further.
