Increase in residential robberies

Residential Robberies are currently showing and increase and residents are urged to look at their security, especially during the night when everyone is sleeping. Test your alarm system and panic buttons on a regular basis. Increase in residential robberies

Townhouse complexes are currently the main targets for house robberies. Benoni, Wadeville, Alberton, Boksburg, Kempton Park, Germiston, Alrode, Johannesburg, Brakpan, Springs, Nigel and all areas in the East Rand SAPS appeals to residents to ensure that they have adequate security at their unit especially at sliding doors. If you have sliding doors ensure that you install extra locks or “dead” bolts, as well as security gates, so that it makes it more difficult to gain access through these doors.

Residents are urged NOT to go outside alone in the early morning hours (02:00 till 05:00), as incidents have been reported where residents were attacked/targeted during these hours while going to smoke etc.

Be Crime Prevention aware at all times especially at night and during the early morning hours. DO NOT leave any doors open while busy in the unit and close ALL windows when going to bed Remove all keys from the doors and gates.
The suspects only take property that is easy to carry and clearly visible, laptops, tablets, cell phones, cameras etc. Please ensure that ALL your property is marked and can be traced back to the owner. When retiring for the night, ensure all your valuable property is out to sight.

Kindly ensure that ALL your doors and ALL your windows are locked and closed at night. Keys must be removed out of the locks. Ensure that you know your physical address (street number, name and suburb) as well as your nearest street corner.

SAPS National emergency number: 10111
