Useful Tips

Hijackings are a very real danger in South Africa. Learn how to avoid and survive them.

Prevent Hijacking When Parking Your Vehicle:

  • Check your rear-view mirror to ensure that you are not being followed.
  • When returning home after dark, ensure that there is an outside light on or have someone meet you at the door.
  • When exiting your vehicle, be cautious and aware of anything that may be concealing a hijacker.
  • Never sit in your parked car without being conscious of your surroundings. Sleeping in a stationery vehicle is particularly dangerous.
  • When approaching your driveway, be on the lookout for suspicious vehicles/persons.

Take Precautions:

  • Know your environment.
  • Get to know who belongs in the vicinity of your home or workplace and who does not.
  • Lock all doors and close windows before driving off.
  • Try to vary your route to places you visit regularly.
  • Ensure all your mirrors are adjusted to give you an optimal all-round view of your surroundings.
  • Try to stop about 5m behind the car in front of you at a stop sign or traffic light – it makes for an easier getaway if trouble arises.
  • Do not be fooled by false appeals for help or “accidents” such as having you car rammed from behind.

Reducing the Risk of a Hijacking When Entering or in Your Vehicle

  • Have your key ready, but not visible.
  • Inspect the outside and inside of the vehicle before unlocking it.
  • Know your destination and directions to it, and be alert should you get lost.
  • Always drive with your windows and doors locked and/or closed.
  • Make a mental note of any Police Stations in the area.
  • Avoid driving when the roads are quiet.
  • If possible, never drive alone.
  • NEVER pick up hitch-hikers.
  • Do not leave windows open more than 5cm.

Home Security – Protect your Home

Even though a home alarm system is a great way to keep your home safe, you can never be too careful when it comes to home security.

  • Ensure that all valuables and important documents are photocopied, authenticated by a Commissioner of Oath and securely locked away. If you do not have a fire proof home safe, lodge these copies with your bank for safekeeping.
  • Ensure that perimeter doors are fitted with adequate locks. The front door should have a safety chain or safety latch and, if the door has no vision panel, a door viewer. If keys to perimeter doors are mislaid, those locks should be replaced.
  • Ensure all windows are fitted with adequate locks or burglar bars that cover all glass.
  • Ensure that all duplicate keys are locked away if not in use. Do not leave in doors or make unnecessary copies.
  • Install a safe for weapons and valuables. Duplicate house keys could be kept in this safe. Wall safes are usually not fire proof and therefore not suitable for face-value documents and money.
  • Keep the garage and tool shed locked when not in use. Would–be intruders should not have access to any item that can be used as a weapon or burglary tool.
  • Install outside lights that can be remotely controlled from inside the house. Consider installing lighting outside which is activated by a motion detector.
  • Try not to have high walls and tall hedges that obscure your view of the property. If walls and ledges are low, or have openings, neighbours and passers-by will more easily be able to spot suspicious or unusual activity.

Events

Quick thinking for ultimate safety

Whether it is staff protection during periods of industrial unrest, individual protection, a chauffeur and close order protection, or crisis management in the face of an environmental threat to a company, that is required, All is Well Special Operations’ employees have what it takes to handle the most adverse situations. The strategy is one of diffusion.

Low-key deployment however, is backed up by high level support and ability to execute. A commanding officer is always on the ground for quick, decisive decision-making.

Sponsoring an event, where crowd control was problematic for example, could have an extremely negative effect on a company’s image and bottom-line. As an extension of public order policing, All is Well Event Management provides a turnkey service, including:
• Access control
• General crowd control
• Safety and security for performers, players
• VIPs and attendees crisis management
• Emergency exit control

The strategy deployed ensures the level of response does not surpass the level of danger. In other words, situations are diffused before being allowed to reach a level where physical safety is compromised.

Previous Events

South Africa has encountered a series of incidents in which children are abused by parents, intruders, house breakers in the society in which they are meant to be protected. In the light of theses circumstances All is Well Security Services embarked on a child abuse awareness campaign in Hillbrow, Yeoville, Johannesburg Central, and Parktown. Research has shown that these are the areas in which violence and child abuse is rife. All is Well is adamant on this stand to reduce the occurrence of these incidences. We would like to express gratitude to the SAPS Yeoville community press and the Mayor and many more who made this day a success.
