REPORT:



We have experienced some crime in the past weeks.
We have studied these incidents and have concluded
that with every incident a flaw was present opening up an opportunity for criminals to hit.


For an int
roduction we need to go back to nature. A security system / network is like a spider’s web and
the closer we can get our security network to
resemble
a
spider’s

web the more effective it will become.


If a spider only establishes a
n outer rim (
our exit co
ntrol and boom gates) the ins
ect will pass through the
middle

without being trapped.

This outer perimeter is important as it gives the web its shape and without
it the web will
have no structure and will collapse.



The spider adds spokes to the web. These

spokes will ensure that the spider has a good basis for the
construction of the rest of the web and
will
ensure th
at th
e vibrations of the
struggling prey

is relayed to
the spider
(this

equates to the
communication channels, alarm networks and community
a
ctions)
.


The
spider then proceeds

to add
the links between the spokes made of sticky strands to catch the insects
(this

will represent the alarm hardware, reaction vehicles

and
operations)
. If the spider does not add
enough of these strands
,

slippery pre
y will still escape thus the structure must have enough of the
se for
the surface of the web (
the greater the area
,

the more vehicles and hardware in the field
,

the better the web
functions
)
.


The spider then sits in the middle of the web lightly touching t
he strands and then waits for a sign
al /
vibration from an insect (
this represents the control room, emergency telephones and alarm monitoring
system)
.


The web must also be strong and must not break when a struggling insect is caught
(the

strength of our
web is the financing behind it).


If the spider
defaults w
ith any of these
crucial factors,
the web fails and the spider goes hungry thus a
spider never
blunders
when spinning a web.


On the other hand
,

we are constantly
stumbling
. We are forever trying t
o make do with what we
have in
an
attempt to give the best with parts of our web being insufficient.

We are attempting to create the best
web without the correct funding.

We are attempting to patrol the area with a constant reminder of the
rising fuel cost
s and having to limit kilometres to stay within budget.

We are attempting to deploy the
most staff member
s with rising salaries and over
-
time payments.

We are adding kilometres to our aging
vehicles with a fear of having to replace them sometime.

This web
/ security system can only reach its
ideal form if everyone take
s

part and support
s

the network run by the LCA.


HOW SHOULD OUR
SECURITY
SYSTEM
FUNCTION?


The LCA forms the backbone and supports the outer perimeter as well as the patrol vehicle
that

is
co
nstantly on the lookout for irregularities. This is important as this forms the outer perimeter of the web
and gives it structure

and shape.


ZAMBLI then attempts to fill in the inner structure of the web by supplying the communication channel,
the alarm s
ystems and monitoring, reaction vehicle, necessary infra structure, additional man power and
resources. The latter is financed by the income generated from alarm and other ZAMBLI clients. This
inner web exceed
s

the income

received

and additional patrols an
d operations are short
-
lived and
un
sustainable.


The ideal web
can be created
when the income from the ZAMBLI clients can support the additional
services
and operations
indefinitely.
If more peopl
e join the alarm monitoring it is
tantamount to

increasing

t
he sticky strands and it becomes more difficult for the criminals to move within the area
undetected. This makes the patrolling more effective as
the ZAMBLI officers and control room are in
touch with their area and become aware of movement within premises

and criminals will find it harder to
escape.


THE ANSWER!!!!


Keeping the spider’s web in mind we must look at the crimes that took place in the last month. The
incidents in Queens Crescent
: In the one case the criminals entered a premises climbing over
a high wall
and held a woman captive within the premises. The ZAMBLI vehicle patrolled past the premises more
than once during the time of the incident. The street was clear and everything looked normal when the
vehicle passed. The web had a hole in it as
the vibration did not reach the spider. This premises was not
connected to
a
control room and we were only informed once we were phoned. The picture would have
been different had we received a signal. The criminals did not pass through the outer perimeter
and got
lost within a web full of holes. The conclusion is that after these incidents the criminals hid within the
area until it was safe for them to leave. In one of the other incidents the victim had everything in place but
his alarm system was disabled
and no signal was sent to the control room.

We are currently still
investigating these incidents.


H
OW CAN I AVOID BEING THE TARGET
?


Unfortunately we live in a country where we can not fight crime by being passive and

we

have to become
actively involved a
nd be aware of our surroundings at all times.




Firstly
,

become part of our w
eb!

This will ensure that our actions are sustainable.



Be vigilant and report suspicious people, vehicles, signs and strange behaviour to us
immediately
.



Crimi
nals are experts in
disguise. D
o not accept that the builder

s vehicle parked on the pavement
belongs to a builder. Report vehicles parked near your premises if you are
un
sure that they belong
there.



Increase awareness amongst your domestic

staff and gardeners
and train them
in identifying
criminal activities. Make them aware of the possibility that criminals might approach them for
information and what they should do. Assure them that they will remain
anonymous

should they
provide

information of criminal activities.



Get to kn
ow your neighbours. You will then know if there is something wrong.



Make sure you have the latest in alarm technology and that it works.



Make sure that you have an early warning system
. W
e need to know before the criminal enters
your house.



Make sure you u
se your alarm effectively. (Make sure your alarm is
activated

even when leaving
your house for a few
minutes
). A house break
-
in
can take
a mere
two minutes.



Make sure you do not enter your premises when there
are suspicious people
loitering

around.



Instal
l silent
passive

panic buttons (
a panic button that you do not have to press)
.



In 90% of house break
-
ins the plasma or flat screen TV is taken. Place a silent passive panic
button on the TV and the panic will be sent to us when the TV is removed whether yo
u alarm is
switched on or not. You can do the same with safe doors and other valuable items.



A person can do only that much and more than that you will have to rely on higher powers for
protection.


EXAMPLE:


This morning Wed, 12
th

Oct,
criminals almost sl
ipped through a hole in the web but made the mistake to
tread on one of our sticky snares. At approximately 03:15 criminals broke into a
non
-
client’s

house
. T
he
neighbour a ZAMBLI client realized something was wrong and activated his panic alarm. This act
ivated
the armed response staff who quickly cordoned

off

the area and started to search for the suspects who
were

now trapped within the perimeter of the security web. It did not take long for us to determine that
the criminals were hiding in one of the pr
emises and
were attempting to cross over into Lynnwood R
oad.
The control alerted the SAPS and the two criminals were arrested and the stolen items recovered.


IMAGINE WHAT CHANCE CRIMINALS WILL HAVE

IF EVERYBODY BELONGED TO THIS WEB
?
