24/7 Security Services is a market leader in secure estate living with a dedicated Estate Division. The objective of this division, led by a team of specialists in their field, is to provide tailor-made and pro-active security solutions with a host of security initiatives designed specifically for residential estates, making Fourways Gardens Residential Estate the safest estate in Johannesburg.

Security Features

24/7 Security Officers are specially selected and trained for security estates. The Officers undergo stringent vetting criteria and proven aptitude assessments for residential developments. Criminal and background checks are conducted before Officers are deployed to sites.

The dedicated management and supervisory team focus on secure estate living. Site-specific training and induction for all security officers are facilitated by a team of instructors. Regular refresher training ensures that Officers’ skills are kept up to date.

24/7 Security provides several 24-hour on-site Reaction Teams in Fourways Gardens Residential Estate. The Teams are manned by specially selected, dedicated Officers. They are kept up to date regarding all the developments and activities, and their knowledge of the estate and surrounding areas enable them to respond quickly to suspicious activities.

The dedicated vehicles ensure that there are always resources available to assist and support residents, ensuring secure estate living.

24/7 Security regularly conducts Special Operations in the area. These strategic interventions are based on best practices by the following teams:

 

Special Operations Teams:

24/7 Security has an extensive fleet of reaction vehicles covering the residential and commercial areas we serve. In addition to alarm monitoring, they specialise in dedicated area initiatives and public space protection.

 

All reaction vehicles are equipped with state-of-the-art technology and PTT radios, as well as satellite tracking and onboard CCTV cameras that monitor internal and external activities.

 

Armed Reaction officers undergo stringent tactical training. All officers are equipped with bulletproof vests, handcuffs, torches and 9 mm side arms.

 

K9 Unit:

The 24/7 Security K9 Unit provides back-up to the Guarding and Armed Response divisions.

 

The dogs are highly trained and can apprehend criminals in a controlled and professional manner. Detection dogs have an incredible sense of hearing and a powerful sense of smell – this enables them to detect disturbances from a long distance, and well before any person or high-tech alarm system.

 

The 24/7 Security K9 unit provides the following services:

  • Narcotics detection
  • Tracking and tracing of suspects
  • Crowd control
  • Perimeter patrols
  • Public space policing
  • Back-up for Armed Reaction Operations

 

Rapid Intervention Unit:

The 24/7 Security Rapid Intervention Unit was conceptualised and launched in response to Gauteng’s extraordinary crime wave. Equipped with the latest technology and manned by highly trained Officers, the Unit offers rapid response to the following high-risk scenarios:

  • Public Visibility Patrols
  • Perimeter Patrols
  • Close Protection/Evacuation
  • Protest Action
  • Infrastructure Protection
  • Special Armed Services
  • Armoured Fleet

By harnessing the power of technology, remote monitoring provides excellent coverage and is active 24-hours a day. 24/7 Security Services provides advanced off-site monitoring through 24/7 Smart Surveillance.


24/7 Smart Surveillance is a technology that enables CCTV systems to intelligently assess an environment and notify the 24/7 Command Centre of an intrusion or event. The technology draws immediate attention to unauthorised activity, allowing us to intervene and react before a crime occurs.


In contrast, traditional means of CCTV surveillance only cater for investigations after the crime has occurred, in many cases having costly consequences.


While the technology behind proactive off-site video monitoring is sophisticated, the way it prevents potential crimes is easy to understand:

  1. A potential threat approaches the perimeter of your site or property.
  2. This threatening activity is picked up by AI technology.
  3. An alert is sent within seconds to the 24/7 Command Centre.
  4. The operator assesses the threat over a live video feed and actions the required response – audio warning, Armed Response deployment etc.

The 24/7 Security Command Centre, with its specialist operators, is the heart of the company. State-of-the-art technology is utilised to provide advanced security solutions and support the various divisions of the company, including residential estates.

 

To ensure business continuity, we have a second Command Centre in Pretoria, as well as an emergency off-site solution.

 

Command Centre technology includes:

  • Visual verification of alarm systems
  • State-of-the-art satellite tracking of all vehicles
  • Client notification by SMS, WhatsApp and e-mail
  • Real-time Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR)
  • Real-time guard monitoring systems
  • Off-site monitoring of CCTV cameras – event based through analytics and virtual patrols
