KSS Incidents 10 - 20 May 2020

Dear KSS Clients

Alarm notifications through the Telegram App
KSS has migrated all communications from SMS to the Telegrams App. Please download the Telegram App as all alarm signals are now going through this platform.

Since March 2020 KSS has advised ALL clients about this migration from SMS to the Telegram App. Check out our website at www.knightsecurity.co.za under “Press releases” for more information.

Spike in crime
There has been a recent spike in opportunistic crime and intruders getting into properties, out-buildings and sheds. Beggars in the residential areas are also either breaking into houses or are informants for other criminals. Yesterday is a case in point, when there were two bicycles stolen out of a yard and a laptop out of a lounge, and in both instances the residents were at home. Please be extra vigilant

News just in: KSS Reaction Officers have arrested the suspect involved in the theft of a laptop on 19 May 2020. The suspect has been detained by SAPS and we are awaiting further information about the location of stolen items and other suspects involved. Great teamwork from KSS and support from Howick SAPS.

Feeding schemes
Please support a local feeding scheme as opposed to giving food away directly from your house or vehicle. There are local organisations that are ensuring that food is being distributed fairly and legitimately.

Hands-free sanitiser stands
KSS has sourced a locally made, heavy duty, hands-free, foot operated sanitiser dispenser with a 1 litre bottle of sanitiser (you can refill). The dispenser can be put at the entrances to offices and shops. Please contact Bossie on 0828783444 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.

KSS officially launch the Telegram App and moved clients over on 1 May 2020.

KSS requests that those clients who do not have an Android or Apple cell phone, and are unable to download Apps, but still require SMS’s to be sent to them, to please email our control room on This email address is being protected from spambots.

Advise them accordingly, and they will ensure that you are still able to receive necessary alarm information via sms.
