Making patrolling count – Kimberley

Fidelity ADT apprehends three suspects while doing a routine patrol.

Tertius Venter-Davies Fidelity ADT General Manager: Central says the Fidelity ADT patrol vehicle was out on a standard patrol when they noticed the front safety gate and wooden door at a premise on Jabula Street Kwano Bantu that looked like it had been forced open.

On 13 April 2022 at approximately 14h20 Fidelity ADT Reaction Officers Jackson Matebes and Liam Dawson were doing a routine patrol when they noticed the tampered gate and door.

Proceeding carefully inside the property, they found three male suspects inside the house. Both officers managed to apprehend all three suspects before they could escape from the scene.

Suspects were handed over to Sergeant Smith from Witdam SAPS.

Venter-Davies Says “I commend the Officers for their quick pro-active patrolling and effective communication. Perimeter security and access control remain the first and most powerful line of defense. “We urge all homeowners to consider installing outdoor detection devices and perimeter security to reduce the chances of criminals reaching your property and gaining access to your home. It needs to be seen as an investment not only in your assets but in your family too. Fortunately, technology, like CCTV for example, has evolved immensely over the last few years making it more affordable and more advanced than ever before.”
