About community security
Our COPS key strategic areas
Ensuring the safety of a community and its residents. We achieve this by assessing, developing, and implementing custom crime prevention and community strategies. These phases form part of our integrated community security approaches.
Neighbourhood watch & community support
Our Community Development Department team provides residents with strong support mechanisms in their efforts to unite in the fight against crime.
We take pride in supporting communities and put our large pool of resources and extensive experience to work to assist them. The partnership is key to our offering, which includes community training, guidance, sponsorship of equipment, and area and vehicle signage. We continue to work with existing and start-up neighbourhood watch groups, street patrol groups, and community policing forums (CPF’s).
Apart from establishing the practical needs of neighbourhood watch groups to assist with the donation of security paraphernalia (such as vehicle decals, reflective vests, and radios linked to our control centre,) the team also plays a vital role in helping residents understand and navigate their role as voluntary patrollers, working within the country’s criminal justice system.
The task of setting up and managing neighbourhood watch groups is made easier with the guidance and support of our Community Development Department team.
Community security is not a one-size-fits-all venture
Community security is not a one-size-fits-all venture. The first step in securing a community is conducting a comprehensive analysis before proposing a security solution. This ensures that security service options are tailored and aligned with any particular community’s unique requirements and strategies.
As a result many communities adopt a phased approach, which may include 12 or 24 hour dedicated vehicle patrols, regular ad hoc vehicle patrols, bicycle or foot patrols, or a combination of services. Communities adopting this approach have enjoyed a significant reduction in contact and property crime.

Blue is seriously great. They're willing to go above and beyond. My dear mother is actually their client, but they were willing to patrol the broader area up to where I stay, just because I had a concern.
Very responsive. I have never had issues with them ever since I installed the alarm. Should my alarm go off and I do not answer the phones the armed response car is by the gate within minutes.
Thank you for your excellent service, from your emergency response team to your technical department and technical staff. Within a few hours of a late afternoon attempted illegal entry onto our property, Blue Security had their staff repair our damaged electrical fence after hours, ensuring our peace of mind for the evening. Greatly appreciated!
