Why testing your house alarm is important!
It is important to test your house alarm every two weeks. This helps the security company to verify the following:
- That they are receiving a signal in the control room for your alarm activation as well as a panic signal.
- If a signal is not received a technician can be sent to replace the radio

Is your house clearly numbered? Do this exercise when you come home one evening – look for your
house number! If YOU can’t see it, an emergency vehicle won’t see it! A visible house number may just save a
life one day.
I ride with the SAPS and also respond to police complaints as I have a police radio. Many times
it is difficult to find homes as no house numbers are visible anywhere. The minutes lost trying to find your
house number can mean the difference between life and death. CKN made sure your road name was re-painted so
please see that your home can be found at night.
A warning to folk who have just moved into the area – be on your guard – amid the confusion of
moving, your home could be a soft target

CRIME REPORTING TIPS
When you phone the Honeydew Police Station on 011 801 8613/4/5 please take note
Residents are asked to take care when phoning burglary and robbery complaints through
to the SAPS.
A burglary is when your house is broken into whilst you are away. The SAPS will come
to take statements but will not “break their necks” to get to you as it is now after the event.
A robbery is when you have been held up and robbed at gunpoint. When a robbery is
reported, all available resources are despatched to the caller.
Please make the differentiation between the two crimes when phoning the SAPS.
When reporting suspicious cars and persons, please try and take down as many details
as possible e.g. the time the vehicle was spotted, the color of the vehicle, the make and if possible,
the registration number.
When reporting suspicious people remember their race, gender (male or female), height,
clothes, color of their clothes, distinctive features e.g. birth marks, limps etc.
Advising me, the SAPS or Dowry that a suspicious “white car” was seen in the area is
insufficient. Clear descriptions make it so much easier to catch the culprits.
Many domestic servants report suspicious people. Please make them aware of the above
