JOBURG - Residential robberies and burglaries continue to be a community problem.
This is according to the Sandton Community Policing Forum which has urged residents to ensure that they observe all necessary safety measures to protect themselves and their belongings. The forum said crime was most likely to increase prior to and during the Easter holiday.
• Residents are advised to lock their doors as suspects gain entry by walking through doors that are left open after they jump fences or derail gates.
• Do not enter if there are unknown cars or pedestrians about.
• Always wait until the area is clear before entering or leaving your property.
• Do not reverse out of your driveway as you become extremely vulnerable.
• Rather exit your property in a forward-drive mode.
• If going away, please ensure that your alarms are fully set and that you have taken all necessary holiday safety precautions.
