ELECTRIC FENCING

 

Perhaps one of the most underestimated security devices is the electrified security fence. An electric fence consists
of a varying number of standards of electric wires, which carries high voltage electric pulse. If the fence is touched it
delivers a non-lethal, but none-the-less extremely powerful shock to a would-be intruder. Ideally, the fence should be
zoned and connected to the property's alarm system so that any tampering on the fence line will result in an alarm activation.

While in the past a security fence was regarded primarily as a physical barrier designed specifically to delay an
intruder, the modern electric security fence acts in a number of ways which combine to make it a very effective
security intervention:

· It is a physical barrier.
· It is a psychological barrier
· It is an early-detection device

While the fundamentals of an electric fence remains the same, variables such as the number of strands, the
distance between the strands, the length and number of zones as well as the integration with other types of fencing or walls are determined by the requirements of each individual clients.

 

 

 

 

Out of City Escorts

 

Athe escort will be required to manage the identified risks by assisting the driver of the Client to safely leave the Premises and reach a safe point (Highway) without any attacks on the Client or the driver. This safe point will be identified by the customer representative. This information will only be communicated at the start of the shift and only the involved parties such as the security provider and the driver of the Client will receive this information.

The escort of such a Client will be done with a soft skin vehicle and two (2) security officers. One security officer will be in a soft skin vehicle equipped with a hand held radio and the second officer will be a crew member on the truck equipped with a hand held radio. The main purpose for the soft skin escort vehicle will be to drive ahead and detect any possible high risk areas (hotspots) and to immediately communicate with the crew on the truck to enable the driver of the truck to deviate from the pre-assigned route to prevent any attacks on the Client, the crew or himself.

In case where intelligence has been gathered and the highway is classified as a hotspot a decision will be taken that the Client be escorted to the next destination by the escort vehicle.

 

1. ARMED OUT OF CITY ESCORTS

The Total bridging escorts will be from the Joburg Head Offices. The escorts will be required to manage the identified risks by assisting the drivers of the Clients to safely leave the Premises and reach a pre-assigned point on the highway without any attacks on the Clients or the drivers. The pre- assigned delivery point will be communicated at the start of the shift and only the involved parties such as the security provider and the drivers of thebridging Clients will receive this information.

2. CONSTRUCTION SITE STRIKES ESCORTS

It will also be expected that if a few bridging Clients are loaded and ready to leave that the 2 assigned escort vehicles, escort the bridging Clients out to a safe point in a convoy. One vehicle with driver and crew will drive in front and an escort vehicle with driver and crew drive behind the convoy. These 2 escort vehicles will be in radio communication with each other. If it is found that the pre-assigned route is blocked or classified as a hotspot will the second vehicle at the back come forward and reroute the convoy to a safer route. When the safe point has been reached will the escort vehicle return to the premises to assist with the escort of the next Client.
