General alarm system update
If you have an alarm system – please arm it when you are not at home, and then at night when you go to bed. Also consider alarming vulnerable outside areas like garages and sheds. There are numerous incidents occurring where alarms have not been set.
Remember, that YOU also need to check that your alarm is working on a monthly basis. How do you do this? Call the KSS Control Room on 033 3305911 and advise the controller that you want to test your alarm. The controller will then guide you through the process and confirm whether a signal has been received in the Control Room or not. If not, then a job card will be made out and a technician will need to address the issue.
Please be aware that there is increased opportunistic crime taking place. It must be noted that many home-owners leave items outside that are visible from the street. Garden furniture and gas bottles are targeted items at the moment.
Please clear overgrown bushes in and around your property. Bushes make very good hiding places for criminals and it is best to have them cleared away or neatly trimmed.
If you see or hear ANYTHING suspicious pertaining to cable theft, please report to the KSS Control Centre on 033 330 5911 or to your local SAPS:
