When considering installing outdoor beams or passives, it is important to understand that intrusion detection equipment is not 100% fool proof!
There are only a handful of anti-masking and anti-blocking devices on the market, so be sure to ask your installer for this technology.
HAR-LYN NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH (“HNW”‘)
HNW aims to help people protect themselves and their properties, and to reduce the fear of crime by means of active, visable citizen patrols, improved home security tips, greater vigilance, accurate reporting of suspicious incidents and crime, and by fostering a community spirit.
HNW operates in Sectors 1 and 4 of the borders of the Claremont Police Station: Sector 1 is the area from Kenilworth Road to Keurboom Park and Belvedere Road/ Rosmead Avenue to Palmyra/ First Avenue; and Sector 4 is the area from Doncaster Road to Belvedere/ Milner roads and Rosmead Avenue to the M5. Their 24/7 contact number is 071 802 2454.
Currently HNW has 50 active patrollers of which only 6 live in Harfield Village. Obviously the more patrollers on the road, the greater the security visibility and the safer the area becomes. If you are unable to offer your time as a patroller, there are other ways to help the Watch by donating money to fund equipment, or assisting with fundraising or recruiting new members. If you have a particular skill set, please let them know as they can perhaps utilise these to promote HNW. For further information either e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Derek on 076 078 1827.
