Be alert to prevent crime

2017-08-30 06:00

BREAK-INS to houses in Greytown and surrounds continue to take place. This is despite the fact that private security firms, mainly Field Security and Mzigi and BSecure have caught the thieves and handed them over to the SAPS. Golf 911, Neighbourhood Watch and Umvoti Security on social media update regularly with details of break-ins, road closures, arrests, etc.

Recently the four apprehended who were handed over to the SAPS by Field were back on the streets within a day or so. Photos of them were published on social media. There apparently has been some controversy about this but residents are alerted and in fact, one “victim” recognised a suspect who had broken into his property a week previously.

Residents are not entitled to take the law into their own hands, but are advised if they have a security issue, or are not contracted to a security firm, to dial Golf 911 on

Remember too, if anything suspicious or out of the ordinary is seen, wherever you are, please report it.
