As specialist in the security industry, we partner with you and jointly identify, prioritise, and develop tailored safety solutions aimed at mitigating risk and enhancing community and stakeholder engagement.

Our COPS key strategic areas

Safety

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.

Education
Creating a well-informed community. We achieve this by providing a platform for the collection and dissemination of relevant crime-fighting information, aimed at instilling confidence within the community.
Sustainability
Creating a sustainable community. We achieve this by promoting community engagement and partnership building – aimed at developing a collective approach to community projects and the fostering of relationships.
Support
Establishing a supported community. We achieve this by providing tools, expertise, and tailored support systems aimed at instilling confidence and enhancing continued engagement.
Blue Zones
We create Blue Zones through the implementation of a layered community security approach within a predetermined dedicated footprint. Using a combination of physical manpower, electronic systems, crime intelligence, and proactive management services, geared towards connecting, informing, and empowering residents within the community.

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.
