  • Reaction to alarm activations
  • Tuck-in service

HOW RAG OPERATES

Proactive Security

RAG’s service provider, P&C Security, works closely with the Bedfordview Police Station and surrounding security companies on joint operations to combat crime in our area.

Reactive Security – Alarm Installations by P & C Security

Alarm Systems are available for installation in homes providing 24/7 rapid response from the RAG/P & C security patrol vehicles, on the activation of an alarm signal or panic button received by the control room. This ensures a response from the SAPS as well. A resident must be a RAG member prior to a P & C security alarm system being installed. Contact the RAG office for installations.

RAG goes the extra mile

At its heart, RAG has the best interests of community members as the strictest priority. The steering committee have vested interests in Bedfordview due to the fact that they are residents. Our vision is to find ways to unite and uplift our area, to provide a safe and clean environment for all, and importantly to protect our property values.
