Fidelity ADT Armed Response Officer (ARO), Zweni Buyile was praised by the local Sedgefield Neighbourhood Watch after making an arrest in the Cola Beach area.
The incident took place last month and followed the sighting of a known criminal. The notification of the sighting was delivered to both Fidelity ADT as well as other local authorities. This information was relayed to ARO Buyile who was patrolling in the area.
“Once the notification was received by our operations team, it took ARO Buyile approximately 20 minutes before spotting the alleged suspect close to Dover Street. This led to a quick reaction where the officer made sure that he apprehended the suspect before he was able to escape,” says Fidelity ADT’s Branch Manager for Garden Route, Steven Green.
Cooperation between local law enforcement and private security authorities have led to several successes in and around Sedgefield. Green says there is also a responsibility on the public to remain alert and vigilant and to report anything suspicious.
“The continued support and assistance by Fidelity ADT is invaluable and much appreciated by the Sedgefield Community. We hope that we can continue with this type of support in trying to keep Sedgefield a safer place,” says Michael Simon, Chairman of the Sedgefield Neighbourhood Watch.
