[LISTEN] Here's how the Memeza Community Alarm System helps combat local crime

The Memeza Community Alarm System has been hailed by some Diepkloof residents , with some elderly people saying they feel much safer.

The system consists of three types of security apparatuses - a loud personal safety alarm and a household community safety alarm.

The system allows for the transmission of a panic signal to police and other pre-programmed numbers in case of an emergency.

Chairperson of the Gauteng Community Policing Board, TJ Masilela joined Joanne Joseph on the Afternoon Drive to talk about how the project has helped combat crimes.

It is an alarm system that has made some of the GBV cases to go down statistically where it has been installed.
