The long and tedious process of drawing up plans for the entrance building, getting approval from the Municipality, involving all stake-holders, raising funds, wading through the mine field of potential suppliers and checking out installations that they have done, seems to, finally be nearing the end.

We are all aware of the sudden upsurge in crime on our village, which makes this project even more important and urgent.

However, we still do not have enough funds to cover the erection of the small building at the entrance which will house the computer for the very sophisticated cameras.

Sadly, our expectations that some of the local builders who are regularly active in the

village would donate all, or at least some, of their time and material to the project did not happen.

We are therefore still scrambling for the last R60,000 to finance the building.

It seems that the whole village is waiting with bated breath for this camera system to get up and running so if anyone can assist, or who know of someone who can assist with the erection of this building, please urgently contact us on security@pringlebayratepay ers.co.za

Keep a list of emergency numbers prominently displayed at or near the telephone; Never open a door to an unexpected visitor; Avoid walking alone, particularly in isolated places; Arrange with reliable neighbours for reciprocal surveillance when away from home for any length of time; Leave lights on when away somewhere at night. As our areas do not have street lights we need to take special precautions as criminal elements are easily able to remain concealed; Ensure that residences are easily approachable and free from concealed means such as shrubbery and trees; A watch dog is a good early warning system especially if kept close to the owner or inside the house; Be familiar with your environment. Be constantly on the look-out for suspicious looking characters or vehicles and do not hesitate to report them to the SAPS; Ensure that Erf numbers are clearly and prominently displayed for emergency purposes; Ensure that all windows can be properly locked and are burglar proofed; Ensure that exterior doors are fitted with adequate locks; Never leave door keys hanging in the door; Don't leave spare keys lying around in your house. Place them in a safe place; Firearm owners must ensure that their firearms are kept safe at all times. Firearms must always be under your direct control or locked away in a firearm safe;

Due to a significant increase in incidents of crime this year it is considered essential that homeowners take appropriate steps to protect themselves against any criminal activity. To achieve this we need to:

Never leave ladders, axes and spades outside. These are potential housebreaking tools and weapons; Ensure that an intruder detection system is connected directly to a security company providing a 24 hour service. Ensure that the system is always activated when away from home; When out walking always make sure that your cellphone is concealed. Never leave cellphones lying on a seat in the car Be alert at all times to any strangers, perhaps disguised as workmen or vendors, who may be loitering in the neighbourhood. Also be aware of job seekers; Look out for suspicious vehicles that cruise the area at intervals and who may be keeping houses under observation. People and/or vehicles giving rise to suspicion should be reported to the SAPS, along with the fullest possible personal and vehicle descriptions; Ensure that front and back doors are not left open or unlocked; Keep garage doors closed and locked; Ensure that valuable items are not left on seats in cars parked at unprotected and isolated areas. Rather keep them locked away in the boot; Never leave car keys in the ignition when away from the car; Keep a list of the make, model and serial numbers of electrical appliances and other valuable equipment should it be required for investigation purposes.
