Yaseen Theba, Director at Vision Tactical, has identified concerning crime trends in these suburbs. While thefts and burglaries remain common, there has been a disturbing uptick in violent crimes, including robberies, kidnappings, murders, and assaults. Criminals frequently target homes, businesses, and individuals on the streets, leaving the community uneasy. Additionally, these areas are not immune to other criminal activities, such as drug-related offences and vehicle hijackings, posing significant threats to residents’ safety.

Vision Tactical adopts a proactive approach to crime prevention to address these challenges effectively. Their visible presence is a deterrent to potential criminals, ensuring swift responses to security concerns. They employ highly trained professionals and cutting-edge technology, which enables them to combat crime and instil a sense of security among residents in the patrolled areas.

Theba is committed to avoiding potential threats and creating a safer environment. Their security approach is assertive and uncompromising, focusing on anticipating threats and developing innovative solutions.


Key technologies utilised by Vision Tactical include license plate recognition cameras, advanced CCTV and analytical technology for open spaces, the incorporation of drones into their security arsenal, and continuous investment in personnel training and development. Their Vision Tactical Plus mobile app, linked to the control room, offers clients a comprehensive safety and security solution at their fingertips.

However, Theba stresses that combating crime should not be solely the responsibility of security companies. It requires a collective effort from the community, law enforcement agencies, and local authorities. Vision Tactical actively engages with the community through initiatives, awareness campaigns, and collaboration with law enforcement, encouraging residents to remain vigilant and implement preventative measures.
