William Nicol is a renowned road in Johannesburg. If you are not hearing about it in the news because of the traffic, then you are likely hearing about a hi-jacking, smash-and-grab, or other criminal activity.
Many residents of Fourways are hypervigilant when they travel along William Nicol. Even with visible police activity, people are scared and they don’t feel protected. Blueheart.africa recently reported that CEO of Nashua Central, Phil McDiarmid, launched a site to investigate the crime on William Nicol and see how his company could assist. TRSS, along with RSS and OSM joined forces with Phil to provide security solutions on William Nicol and Leslie Roads, the two roads that were identified as areas of immediate concern.
TRSS installed industry-leading ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) cameras to monitor all passing vehicles on these roads. The IP cameras are linked to amazing software that alerts our security teams and the SAPS of potential criminals and criminals that have been involved in crime so that they can be stopped and apprehended before more crimes are committed.
An issue that hits close to home
Brett Fisher, CEO – RSS Security Services & Executive Director for TRSS Reaction, as one of the first students to attend Fourways High School when it opened and is currently raising his family in Fourways.
“I have lived in the Fourways area for over 30 years, I have 4 boys, the eldest is 14 years old and attends Fourways High with some of my old teachers! It is no secret that we have been hit with a crime wave. I hope to see more businesses, estates and the community getting behind this initiative. I would like them to engage with Nashua and OSM or ourselves to get on board with cameras and OSM so we can blanket the entire area and get the crime under control – as mentioned, we have the technology at our fingertips – let’s use it and make Fourways a great place for our families to grow up in,” says Brett.
This is just one of the many ways that TRSS supports and protects their community. If you need residential or commercial security services, contact us today.
