GP/ OKCID security report – July 2019

We asked for rain – and it came! Let us remember to be grateful for the weather, even when it is temperamental.

Sadly, when cold weather increases so does crime – it becomes difficult to make do with less and people become bolder. There were five incidents of car break-ins this past month and four cases of armed robbery.

To ensure your safety, please be aware of your surroundings and do not carry valuables, or leave them in full visibility on a seat in your vehicle. If you leave items on show, expect them to go!

We suggest keeping our 24 patrol vehicle numbers on hand for assistance:

 

GP CID PATROL VEHICLE

082 214 3228

OK CID PATROL VEHICLE

082 217 1386

 

Please also consider donating old clothes and canned foods to a local shelter to assist those less fortunate than ourselves. Shelters in the area include: The Hope, Exchange and The Haven.
