Critical alarm information
Please can you ensure that when you are not at home that you alarm is activated. ALSO make sure that no windows are left open and no pets are left inside your house. There are MANY false alarms coming through to the control room due to winds and storms blowing curtains in front of beams, windows banging in the wind and pets moving around the inside of the house. Please take responsibility and respect the fact that your false alarm may have a negative effect on someone else in dire need of a more urgent response.

Hilton Hawks – a proactive community initiative
Knight Security Solutions have now been running the Hilton Street Hawks Security Project since 1 September 2016 and would like to encourage more Hilton residents to join the initiative.

Apprehending criminals
A thank you to all our KSS staff involved in facilitating and responding to “calls for help” from the community, and for apprehending criminals on a regular basis. KSS have apprehended over ten (10) criminals this past month, with SAPS facilitating many more. Also, a thank you to SAPS and the SAPS Dog Unit for all their support and effective work done over the past few weeks.

PSIRA (Private Security Industry Regulatory Authority) Notice
PSIRA are taking the process of “cleaning” up the private security industry very seriously. We, at Knight Security Solutions fully support this initiative. Communication was received by KSS this past week and we welcome the fact that it is aimed at educating consumers in the industry. KSS aspire to the highest standards and in our last PSIRA audit attained 100% compliance.

As stated in the communication: “Our (PSIRA) commitment in ensuring that we increase compliance levels in the industry. One of the initiatives highlighted as a priority area was the educational campaign for the public and consumers of private security. Towards the end of last year in October 2016, PSIRA ran an awareness campaign on DSTV channels and to intensify the awareness campaign, we have also placed the commercial with SABC TV channels”.

Numbering properties
Please ensure that your property (home and business) is clearly numbered. This makes it much easier for emergency services (Security Company, Ambulance, SAPS, Fire Department etc...) to locate your property.

Conclusion
We all need to work together in combatting crime. Knight Security Solutions is an industry leader and with our innovative, new “two-up” system of TWO (2) Armed Reaction Officers per response vehicle, we can see the positive difference this is making. KSS will continue to “care for our communities” by going the extra mile. Our staff are observant and take their roles as “safety officers” in our communities seriously.

Village Talk - 18 January 2017

Happy New Year to all our KSS clients and the community at large. Knight Security Solutions aims to continue to deliver the best quality service and products to all our clients for 2017.

Crime update
Crime over the festive period was down from previous years but appears to have picked up again in the New Year. Petty crime and intruders onto properties still remain some of the main criminal offences. Forced entry into homes where gates are derailed and the front door and gate are broken down is still a common modus operandi.

Numerous medical emergencies were phoned in to KSS over the festive period and with the proficient Ambulance service providers in our area, all cases were dealt with timeously.

Village Talk - 7 December 2016

You need to take responsibility for your own safety and security. What emergency plan do you have in place? Do you have a secure property with an alarm and a security company that responds? Do you have a family emergency plan should an incident occur? Do you have emergency contact numbers somewhere visible in your house? Do you have emergency numbers on speed dial on your phone? Do you know your neighbours?
Please take cognizance of these points and try to make an effort to keep yourself and your family safer.

Check your alarm systems
With the festive season approaching it is important to ensure that your alarm system is fully functional. Many people leave this to the last minute before they go away and it puts our KSS technical teams under immense pressure. Please do not hesitate to contact KSS should you need a service done or upgrades to be made. You can contact Gary on 0828947628 (This email address is being protected from spambots.

Gates being derailed and intruders gaining access to properties has been quite rife recently. Remember, that external beams or a gate alarm can give you early warning of intruders attempting to gain access to your property and/or house.
