Village Talk - 3 May 2017

Your home and business alarms
Please make sure that all parts of your personal and business alarm systems are working – including the outdoor beams and the panic buttons. It is your responsibility to test and ensure that your system is working. Should you need any advice please contact Keshen on 083 3935 265 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

SAPS
Please report all incidents to SAPS – no matter how small. It is concerning to note how few incidents are actually reported to SAPS. YOU, as the victim of a crime, must report the incident to SAPS.

The public also need to attend CPF meetings if you want your voice to be heard.
• Mpophomeni – 1st Thursday of the month at 5pm at Mpophomeni Tourism.
• Hilton – 3rd Thursday of the month at 6pm at the Hilton Police Station.
• Howick – Last Thursday of the month at 5.30pm at the Howick Police Station.

Hilton Street Hawks
Any Hilton residents who are interested in supporting the Hilton Street Hawks Project are encouraged to contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 082 2196758 for more information. Knight Security Solutions are directly involved in the operations of this project.

Gate batteries
Gate batteries are being targeted again. Please make sure that you have a secured gate motor box. It is suggested that you also have a gate motor / gate opening tamper alarm. This can be linked to your house alarm system. The option of external beams linked to a buzzer in the house, as an early warning, is also a good idea. Please contact Keshen at KSS on 0833935265 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for information on both these options.

Opportunistic crime and intruders
There have been many reports of opportunistic intruders. Please be aware, alert and report incidents immediately to KSS on 033 3305911. Please also don’t leave items in view of the road, keep garage doors closed during the day and set your alarms when you are not at home. Please also report your crimes to SAPS.

Overgrown foliage
Remember to clear the overgrown foliage in and around your property. Foliage makes good hiding places for criminals who can go unobserved by residents. Please also speak to your neighbours regarding this issue, as their overgrown foliage can adversely affect your safety.

Cable Theft
Cable theft is still a very serious concern in the Midlands. Please report any suspicious activity to KSS on 033 3305911.

Update your information with KSS
Please may I request that if ANY of your details have changed (cell numbers, key holders etc...) that you advise Elaine O’Farrell at the KSS offices at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or phone 033 3305911.
