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.

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 KSS 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.

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.

Armed Response
The “two-up” system where KSS now has TWO Armed Reaction Officers per reaction vehicle, has proved to be incredibly successful and has been very well received by our clients. This proactive improvement in service is already having a positive ripple effect through the community.

K9 Division
The KSS K9 division has grown substantially and this has afforded Security Officers the opportunity to diversify their skills within KSS. The level of care and commitment by all members of the division is commendable. The motto “Love your dog” really does resonate through all personnel.
