CBCSI is complementary to armed response. Both are essential for a safe community. Without either, a community in South Africa, particularly an affluent one, quickly becomes unsafe. We support and work closely with ADT and Bay Response.
Having a community security presence and having armed response linked to an alarm signal is best practice in residential security. Some communities, like many in Johannesburg’s northern suburbs, have an integrated service such as CAP (ie community and armed response combined), and some communities, like ours, provide these services through separate entities. The important point is that both are necessary!
Please therefore support CBCSI. We are your community safety.
