Overview of activity in Sanddrift – April
We had 2 reported crimes for the month in the area, one being a business break-in and the other a house break-in. I am aware that the western part of the suburb is under real pressure currently. Vagrants will always be a problem if the community continues to be generous in what they leave out for vagrants or leave in their bins. Please give responsibly.
We are aware that there is still an issue with crime not being reported in the suburb – please use 10111 anytime you are a victim of crime, and you will be given a reference number that you can follow up on. Without the stats we won’t get more visible police in the area.
LOAD SHEDDING – It should be noted that with the high number of load shedding occasions in the suburbs, our response times have fallen significantly. Loss of power due to load shedding can cause an alarm to activate with the result that many alarms activate at the same time causing a backlog in the control room and longer response times. NB – There is clear evidence of criminals planning their break-in activity around load shedding times – we urge you all to test your alarms, ensure your batteries can cover the load shedding periods, and resolve any zones that you by-pass due to faults..
SAPS Complaints – if you have a complaint about SAPS – please email firstname.lastname@example.org, where your complaint will be followed up and investigated thoroughly.
