Crime Report 16 - 22 August 2017

Dear KSS Clients

The “self-defence” course on held on Monday night went extremely well. It was also well attended, and I am sure that all those that were there would agree, that Don Gold is a fantastic teacher and approached the training from a very practical and realistic angle. Don referred to the training as “Conflict Avoidance Resolution Management” (CARM) as opposed to “self-defence” because, if we are ALERT to our surroundings, we should be able to avoid direct and sudden contact with a criminal. But … if we do land up in a physical confrontation, the methods he demonstrated were simple, practical and easy to execute.

Dear KSS Clients

Condolences
It is with a heavy heart that we offer our condolences to the family of a very special Knight Security Solutions staff member, Sunil Sookdeo, who was tragically taken from us early on Sunday morning. Sunil was an integral member of our Technical Department and was a very popular young man with all our staff and clients. Sunil started at Knight Alarms in 2012 as a young controller and worked his way through our system into the positions of Junior Technician (2014), Control Room Supervisor (2016/2017) and eventually in May this year was promoted to a Senior Technician position. Sunil was a quiet leader who worked with integrity and we will all miss him terribly.

Electric Fence
If you have an electric fence around the perimeter of your property, it is worth considering getting it linked and monitored by the KSS control room. In this way, if there is a fence activation, KSS can respond and assist timeously. Many clients have electric fences as a deterrent, but they are not monitored, so should there be an incident it is often not picked up until after the event (reactive as opposed to proactive).
