Just before midnight on the 10th of April, the Fidelity ADT Security Monitoring Centre received a security alarm signal from a Halse Avenue premises in Mount Edgecombe. Armed Response Officer (ARO) Phiwayinkosi Ntuli was immediately dispatched, and arrived at the property within minutes.
Whilst conducting a perimeter check, ARO Ntuli successfully apprehended a suspect who was attempting to break into the property. The suspect was handed over for arrest to members of the Umhlanga South African Police Service (SAPS) and is being charged with trespassing and attempted house breaking.
KZN District Manager for Fidelity ADT, Ivan Govender, commended Officer Ntuli for his quick response and bravery. “I commend ARO Ntuli for his swift response which ensured that the criminal has now been placed behind bars.”
He advised residents to remain vigilant and not to let their guard down. “Criminals are opportunists and will be on the lookout for any vulnerable areas in and around your property such as open windows, unlocked doors and unarmed alarm systems. Ensure that your alarm systems are tested regularly and that your property has sufficient security measures in place to protect you and your loved ones.”
Fidelity ADT relies on a vigorous recruitment system, world class training and the latest equipment to ensure that our armed response officers are always up to the task of being Always There.
