“Crime is common. Information is scarce. Therefore it is upon the availability of information rather than upon the crime that we should dwell”
The reality is harsh, clear and unquestionable. The statistics are realistic............ We all live in a country that unfortunately has some of the highest levels of crime in the world.
To ensure we are protected and safe, many South Africa businesses and households make use of privately owned security companies and armed security guards. We have high walls, electric fences, alarms and panic buttons. The South African Police Service are efficient in combating crime but they are under severe strain.
All these crime fighting systems are reactive, and the reaction in most cases is to an isolated incident.
The good news is there is an aspect of combating crime that is often overlooked and underutilized, although it is one of the most effective weapons against crime- the assimilation and management of live up to date information.
To be able to observe, understand and apply relevant information, follow these guidelines,
- Always Be Ready
- Always Be Notified
- Always Be Vigilant
- Always Be Informed
- Always Be Aware
- Always Be Cautious
- Always Be Part of a Community
