Protective Force Neighbourhood Watch

If you live in the Alberton area, you have surely seen our security officers in our dedicated patrol cars, keeping a watchful eye over your neighbourhood.

This is because we believe that the presence and visibility of these officers makes it more difficult for criminals to enter your premises and this in turn improves the safety of you and your family and that is what we are all about.

Patrol officers are required to scan the disc that we install on your premises in order to log and prove that they were in fact at your gate patrolling. This is just one of the many ways in which we use technology to make sure that you receive nothing but excellent service.

The aim of our neighbourhood watch is to achieve all round safer neighbourhoods. Even if you are not one of our valued customers yet, it is probable that you are already enjoying the benefits of our neighbourhood watch service as a result of our large presence in the community

How can you benefit from a panic button?

We all know that having a security system is a great way to protect your business or home from theft and vandalism when you’re away. But what about those incidents that occur when you’re at work or just relaxing at home?

Panic buttons exist to protect people from personal harm. They can provide an instant alert to us when you feel you are in danger and need immediate emergency assistance.

A break-in can occur at any time. Usually it happens when no one is home, but on few occasions it could happen when you and your family are in the house. A panic button can help protect your loved ones, from any unexpected situation.

Adding a panic button could be a very valuable addition to your security system. Call us to get one installed or give us a call to see how we can help you today.

Tips to avoid being hijacked

In South Africa, one hijacking occurs roughly every 32 minutes. Over 12 000 vehicles were hijacked in SA between April and December 2016; 14.9 per cent more in nine months than in the previous financial year.

Here are the tips which could save your life:

  • If you sense you are in danger, use the panic button on your tracking device or contact your armed response company.
  • Always be aware of your surroundings and look out for anything suspicious.
  • Use a GPS to avoid getting lost and becoming an easy target. Inform someone at your destination about your estimated time of arrival.
  • Limit distractions, such as checking or talking on your cell phone when walking to or from your car.
  • Avoid driving with windows open, keep the doors locked and lock valuables out of sight. Install smash-and-grab window protection if possible.
  • If you suspect you are being followed, make a couple of false turns. If someone is still following you, drive to the nearest police station.
  • Leave enough room between you and the car in front of you to avoid being boxed in.
  • Slowdown in such a way that the light is green by the time you reach a traffic light, especially late at night.
  • Always park in a safe, well-lit area.

 

Always remember to not try and be a hero; your life is worth more than your car. To find out more about our panic buttons call today or visit our website to enquire www.protectiveforce.co.za or call on 0861 030 030.
