Vision Tactical Prepares For A Busy New Year’s Eve

Vision Tactical –

Private Security Company Vision Tactical is reminding those celebrating New Year’s Eve to stay safe and know their limits.

As with Black Friday, Vision Tactical have its medical partners ER24 on standby throughout the night for any medical emergencies and Tracker Connect on call to ensure one of the busiest nights of the year goes off without a hitch.

Director of Vision Tactical, Yaseen Theba said that after a busy Christmas period all units are fully prepared for New Year’s Eve with a plea to those celebrating to start 2020 safe and well.

“The traditional party night puts more demand on emergency services, security companies, police, ambulance dispatchers, doctors and medical staff and ambulance crews than any other time of the year.”

Theba adds that whilst most people will drink responsibly, unfortunately there are some who will overdo it.

“But we urge everyone to stop and think before they do anything and remember that their actions will have consequences.”

Vision Tactical urges people to consider these tips to have a good time and keep safe:

  • Don’t drink and drive – pre-book your Uber home or arrange a lift.
  • Think carefully about when you jump in the car the following day – tiredness itself can impede your ability to drive.
  • Keep away from hostile situations.
  • Look after yourself and your friends.
  • Be aware of your surroundings.

Vision Tactical Makes Huge Strides in The Fight Against Crime

Vision Tactical – 

Since inception in 2014, Vision Tactical has made huge strides in the private security industry.

Having been recognized as one of the fastest and strongest growing security service providers in Gauteng, the mandate of the company still remains the same.

Under the leadership and guidance of its Directors – Yaseen Theba and Feroz Essay, the security company built its stronghold in the northern suburbs of Johannesburg.

Theba says that Vision Tactical understands that customers rely on the company to safeguard their homes as well as businesses which is why every security contract is personally managed by one of the directors.

“This ensures we consistently deliver the very highest professional standards. Vision Tactical is firmly positioned among the most respected security companies in Johannesburg. We recruit trained specialists with highest standards and accreditations offering our clients a unique range of security services.”

In August this year, Vision Tactical launched its latest edition to an already diverse fleet, dubbed ‘Mobile Command’.

The unit is used to proactively sup- port the fight against crime in Johan- nesburg with the unique Mobile Command Centredispatched to any emergency situation and also utilized as a meeting area, radio command post, WIFI hub with various communi- cation capabilities, and much more.

The idea behind the Mobile Command Centre has ensured that other Vision Tactical Units including the Intervention Unit, SWAT Unit, Patrol Vehicles and Houghton based control room become more efficient in proactively fighting against crime and criminals operating in the city.

The vehicle is a fully fledged C4ISR (Command, Control, Communications, Computer, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance) unit, a first for the private security industry.

Vision Tactical has also built strong relationships with various departments in Gauteng, namely;

  • The Johannesburg Metro Police Department (JMPD)
  • The South African Police Service (SAPS)
  • Community Policing Forums (CPF’s)
  • Johannesburg City Parks
  • City of Johannesburg

In addition to this, Vision Tactical forged long standing working partner- ships with companies and institutions, namely;

  • Namola
  • ER24, Emergency Medical Partners
  • Tracker Connect
  • Sefeko

While the focus for Vision Tactical has solely been on protecting various communities at large, the company always wanted to give back to the community in more ways than one, this is how and when the GREEN TEAM was born.

In February 2019, Theba and Essay co – founded the ‘Green Team’, an ini- tiative started for the community by the community.

The mandate and sole objective of the Green Team is to #KeepItClean.

Vision Tactical noticed the rapid increase of illegal dumping incidents in areas such as Houghton, Killarney and Norwood and hopes that the presence of the ‘green bakkie’ around hotspot areas will deter residents and businesses from doing so, that way ensuring no more illegal dumping while protecting the environment at the same time.

JMPD Encourages A Good Working Relationship With Private Security Companies

Vision Tactical – 

The Johannesburg Metro Police Department (JMPD) say they encourage a good working relationship with private security companies, especially during the festive period.

JMPD Spokesperson Superintendant Wayne Minnaar told Vision Tactical that the relationship is vital in combatting crime within the City of Johannesburg.

“It helps us be there where we do not have officers, so with the security guards they alert and assist and even apprehend criminals where there are no JMPD officers.”

Minnaar has urged those staying in the City of Johannesburg during the festive period to be extra vigilant.

“There is a tendency for an increase in crimes, particularly bag snatching, cellphone theft and that’s why we want to encourage people to carry as little cash as possible with them because it’s the time of year when criminals take advantage of the situation.”

Minnaar adds that all citizens should enjoy themselves, but within the parameters of the law.

“They should do so in a safe manner, and ensure that their safety is the number one priority.”

Keep Your Home Safe and Secure During the Holidays – Vision Tactical Director Yaseen Theba

Vision Tactical –

With all of the holidays, shopping, parties, and fun coming up with the festive season, it’s important to be safe while also enjoying the season.

The best thing Vision Tactical can suggest for home safety during the holidays, as well as the rest of the year, is to have a monitored security system.

But there are several other things you can do in addition to that to help keep your home and family safe.

Here are tips to help you do just that.

Before leaving, check your property and make sure there are no garden tools lying around which criminals could use to break into your home.

Keep your travel plans offline:

If you are planning to travel during the holiday season, be sure to keep your travel plans off your social media networks. Never post where you are going, when you are leaving, or when you will be back. This is prime information for a thief because he will know when your house will be empty. Even if you have the highest level of security on your Facebook or Twitter accounts, posting this personal information is never recommended.

Don’t state your home address on the outside of your luggage. Put a note inside the lid in case of loss, or use a label with an alternative non-residential address, such as your place of work

Notify a neighbour:

If you are planning to go out of town during the holiday season, be sure to notify a trusted neighbour. Ask the neighbour to keep an eye on your house and report any suspicious activity. You’ll also want this neighbour to pick up your mail and newspapers while you are away. Make sure your house looks like somebody is home to deter a burglar. Home automation is a great way to do this. Add a motion sensor light or use smart plugs and smart lightbulbs that let you control lights, TVs, and more from anywhere.

Bring in washing from the line, and from drying racks that can be seen from the street.

Leave curtains and blinds open – nothing reveals that a house is unoccupied so much as curtains drawn during the day.

Cancel deliveries and pool and garden services.

Keep your valuables safe:

Keep valuables out of sight and don’t leave them where they can be seen through a window, especially if you live in an estate or complex.

Make sure you have adequate house and travel insurance and that you have declared anything that could, if an insurer found out about it later invalidate your claim.

Aside from having adequate coverage, here are some steps you can take to protect your house:

Turn off your geyser:

Turn off and unplug any electrical appliances which will not be in use (television, computer, etc.).The holidays can be the most wonderful time of the year, as long as you stay safe. Be sure to take the precautions you need in order to fully enjoy the season.
