Incidents details
Numerous incidents involved outbuildings, sheds, garages, carports and Wendy houses being broken into. Often these outbuildings are not alarmed or protected by external beams.

It is also noticeable that alarms are at times not set when these incidents occur. Please be vigilant about setting your alarm.

Fences being cut, walls being jumped, windows being broken and front or kitchen doors being damaged are the main source of access.

Please note that vehicles and vehicle contents are a target at the moment. Vehicles parked outside are vulnerable and it is suggested that external beams be installed as an early warning trigger.

Gates being tampered with has been noted and it is possible to link you gate motor / battery to your alarm system so you can be alerted to an activation or tampering.

Copper pipes, laptops, electronic equipment, tools garden implements and garden furniture are the targeted items. Please ensure that these items are secured or covered by beams and not left lying around in view of the road.

KSS Incidents 21 - 31 May 2020

Dear KSS Clients

KSS is proactive and is involved with special operations with SAPS on a continuous basis. With the recent spike in crime, KSS is out there working with SAPS, community groups and community members. KSS Officers have also affected more arrests over the past 10 days.

Remember - Your security starts with YOU. What have you done and what measures have YOU taken in order to safe guard your home and business?

How vigilant are you really? Do you leave items in view from the road with doors and windows open? Are you working from home and have a laptop lying on the dining room table?

Please be aware – there is a lot of opportunistic crime where criminals are taking advantage of people being slack about their security while at home.

Technical advice
Do you have an electric fence and would like it monitored so that early warning activations can be responded to? KSS can do this for you.

Would you like CCTV cameras installed that also trigger an intruder alert? KSS can do this for you.

KSS Client Care
Please note that KSS caters for the individual and does not just blanket our clients under one monthly rate. KSS takes the following into account: If you are a pensioner, working full-time, a one-income household or if you have been retrenched or are struggling financially. KSS knows that everyone is different and circumstances change.

KSS Patrols

KSS has posted in previous newsletters that the Armed Response units with two (2) Armed Response Officers in them, were split so that KSS could have more vehicles, visible patrolling, eyes and Response Officers on the road.
