Mall@55 security breaches a major concern for tenants

Tenants at the new Centurion shopping centre, Mall@55 are concerned with a number of armed robberies which have occurred at the centre.

They say the landlord had promised to increase security but nothing has been done.

There was another break-in at a shop in the centre on Wednesday night, with robbers gaining access through the ceiling.

Director of security company at Pro-active South Africa, Ryno Schutte recommends that the landlord do a proper risk assessment of the shopping centre and implement security measures.

Access control at the entrance of the premises should be the first thing considered, he says.
