Specialised Response Unit curbs crime

The Specialised Response Unit (SRU) teams launched by Fidelity ADT actively address crime concerns, providing Durban residents with peace of mind.

“The SRU team consists of seven robust armed response vehicles as well as highly-trained armed response officers equipped with a unique skill-set that includes intelligence/surveillance training, crime trend analysis and prediction, subject profiling, counter intelligence, firearm and advanced weapon skills, SWAT training as well as education in all aspects of applicable legislation,” explains Fidelity ADT’s District Manager for KwaZulu-Natal, Vaughan Pillay.

The team has predominantly focussed on the Cowies Hill, Westville, Umhlanga, La Lucia, Gateway and Upper Highway footprint following a request from several community stakeholders including local Neighbourhood Watches, Community Policing Forums and Fidelity ADT customers.

“We have already seen a difference being made thanks to the increase in visibility, vigilance and additional patrols by the team. We believe in effective collaboration and work closely with other local security role players to ensure operational success, arrests and a reduction in crime,” added Pillay.

Members of the public can contact the local Fidelity ADT Durban branch to find out more about the SRU team, technological solutions such as community CCTV cameras, as well as the Community Control Room which was implemented to assist in effective emergency communications. “The combination of implementing various resources and technologies in a community serve to effect a positive impact in the fight against crime,” concludes Pillay.
