ANTI-HIJACK UPDATE FOR AUGUST 2015
In August we see the start of Spring ! … What a pleasure to welcome the warmer weather into our lives but please still be very alert and think of your security and the safety of your family and businesses. Do not leave windows and doors wide open without the grill across securely locked, and where possible the alarm activated at ALL times, especial in areas not being used, even in daylight hours. There have been horrid reports of senseless loss of life in broad day light so where possible step up on the security. Our condolences to the families concerned.
There is definitely an increase in crime with theft… cash being the biggest sort after commodity. It is not wise to leave large sums of money in your homes or businesses … even for one night … have the armed security division of your security company send a team to collect your money and have it delivered safely to the Bank. When drawing large sums of money from the bank be very weary you are not being watched and then followed, do not leave large sums of money unattended or left in a vehicle this spells disaster! Unemployment rate is on the increase so be vigilant at all times.
There have been reports of a Black Mercedes cruising in public car parks outside supermarkets surveying the area and will try to distract you by waving an object in your face and then swiftly grab handbags or valuables that are in view. It is best to keep doors locked even when inside the vehicle in these public areas. When shopping do not have large sums of money on you as you just may be under surveillance and a prime target after leaving the tills. The jamming of locking mechanisms is still happening … be sure your vehicle is locked by manually checking the handle before leaving your vehicle. This takes only extra seconds to check and is peace of mind in the long run.
Let’s ALL fight this crime together - stay ALERT and SAFE !
