Show of force

Early morning on Friday, 24 October saw a serious security “show of force” in Riverside Park with no less than four security companies and SAPS making their presence felt in a drive-through of Mbombela’s thriving City Improvement District (CID).

Representatives of Hi-Tech Security, J&M Security, Fidelity, J&M Naspoti and SAPS in 42 branded response vehicles, plus the Hi-Tech Security medical emergency team in two ambulances, wound their way through Riverside Park leaving those that live, work, shop and play in – or simply commute through – the area in no doubt that Riverside Park is a security stronghold.

The area is monitored 24/7, 365 days a year by cameras – that feed into the Riverside Park control room – and bicycle patrols and boasts the most sophisticated License Plate Recognition (LPR) system available.

“Security is a priority for Riverside Park residents and business owners” says Renate Scholle, CID Manager of Riverside Park.

“We chose a state-of-the-art security system supported by an independent Motorola Wi-Fi network and multiple CCTV and LPR cameras. The system is secure and reliable and it’s delivered exactly what it promised. We now have a real-time data feed from the cameras to our control room 24 hours a day. Security related incidents can be assessed remotely and the most appropriate response can be decided before security personnel is deployed.

“Crime rates dropped by 25% shortly after the initial installation and have consistently remained significantly below Mbombela’s norm for the last three years.” says Scholle.

Apart from the surveillance system security in Riverside Park is further enhanced through an active Security Committee. The Committee is made up of senior representatives from each private security company operational in the Precinct as well as Traffic and SAPS officials.

“We meet once a month, it’s a fantastic and pretty powerful platform for addressing common security issues and acting on them collectively.” says Scholle.

The early morning “show of force” ended at Wimpy The Grove where security personnel were treated to a complimentary cup of Wimpy’s famous coffee!
