Overview of activity in Sunset Beach – April
We had only 1 crime reported for the month – a drug bust where a significant number of illegal drug tablets where found. Arrests were made.
Of more concern is the current spate of robberies being committed on the beach between Sunset Beach and Dolphin Beach Hotel. We are carrying out our own patrols with officers out of uniform, working with the NW and the ward councillor to look at possible solutions to curb these types of attacks. They are completely random and difficult to detect without CCTV in the dunes.
Please report any suspicious person or activity immediately to our control room with full details, so that we can dispatch armed response officers. We have increased patrols due to more and more suspicious activity in the area, with vehicles spending an average of 33 hours per day in the suburb.
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.
