PINETOWN SAPS communications department has been bolstered with the donation of two-way radios from a local security company, ADT, to assist in communication with the community control room (CCR) initiated by it last year.
The CCR is operated from the ADT offices in Pinetown and serves as a vital communication link between neighbourhood watches and now the SAPS.

Rian Buys, ADT spokesperson said they are delighted to have the SAPS on board.
“These radios will enable us to communicate with the local SAPS to create critical awareness of crime related information, including reporting crimes, suspicious individuals and potential emergencies.”

Since implementation, the CCR has made a significant impact in the fight against crime due to the collective effort from all role players.
“We encourage more residents and neighbourhood watches to get involved in the CCR and be a part of making a difference in the community. For the latest CCR information, ‘like’ the CCR Facebook page.”

The company is committed to forming partnerships with local crime-fighting organisations to proactively reduce criminal activity.
“Having and maintaining good working relationships between various community safety organisations, neighbourhood watches, private security companies and the police, is very important as they can yield positive results in the fight against crime.
