This month has seen some nasty break-ins with intent of causing great trauma to victims, in as much as them being badly beaten. tied up and threatened with rape. This occurred in daylight hours and the demand was for money. The perpetrators would not accept the fact that there was not a large sum of money on the property ….. their demand was for a very large sum. This is a warning to make sure that the security of locking gates and having the premises alarmed in areas not occupied in place, be it day or night. Robberies reported in Borrowdale, Emerald Hill, Milton Park, Belvedere, Chisipite and Avondale
The unemployment level is high and we need to be aware at all times. Do not keep large sums of money at home, word seems to get a round, be wise in front of staff with money do not leave it lying around … it’s a temptation and not entirely fair.
As we head into the festive season lets ALL be sure to have security in mind, put guards on duty if there is an event, and if cars are not parked on the premises, this is for the safety of your guests’ vehicles. A presence is a deterrent.
As we prepare to take some time to spend with family and friends have the all security in place and also the safety and care of your pets, there will be fireworks during this time and this is when pets are terrified and go missing. This is extremely stressful for all concerned and hopefully avoided with planning.
When travelling on the main highways and roads, travel safe, keep to the speed limits, drive with due care and attention and let’s keep carnage off the roads this holiday season. Make sure you have all the requirements and documents for vehicle travel in the vehicle as there will be checks and road blocks. Do NOT drink and drive think of the safety of family and other road users. Only use hands off kits to answer mobile phones when driving. It is not safe to stop, but if this is necessary make sure the vehicle is well off the road and not obstructing the flow of traffic. It is an offense to just stop on the road with hazard lights flashing, to answer mobile phones etc, this is being extremely thoughtless and careless to other road users.
Enjoy this Christmas season with security and safety in mind ,,,,,,
Let’s ALL fight this crime together - stay ALERT and SAFE !
