A new specialised security vehicle deployed along the Atlantic Coastline has recorded several successes since it was introduced in April.

Cape Town South District manager at Fidelity ADT, Jade Hanning said the vehicle was introduced to serve as a proactive weapon in the fight against crime.

“The difference between this vehicle and our armed response vehicles, is its ability to proactively be involved in combating crime. The vehicle’s officers are also specially trained and equipped for this purpose,” he said.

Since the launch, the unit recorded several arrests, responded to a number of house robberies and cases of attempted theft and aggravated assault.

Tactical operations commander at Camps Bay Community Safety Initiative, Bernard Schäfer, said the new response vehicle is an exciting addition. “It has been custom-designed, handpicked, trained, equipped, deployed and managed to specifically combat and address our localised crime and related issues. With 12 arrests already within the first month, this new unit has surpassed expectations and is proving to be a formidable force against crime, and a resounding success for Camps Bay,” he said.
