Welcome to the RAG family! Thank you for entrusting us with your security.

We look forward to providing you with our highly professional and dedicated security service, delivered by a team of well trained and caring individuals who are obsessed with keeping Bedfordview safe and crime free.

Please note the following important RAG contact details:

For Incidents and Emergencies
Call the 24-Hour RAG Control Centre –
011 455 7022 or 082 322 3333
(Please save this number for emergencies. It is also available on WhatsApp.)

Please call the RAG Control Centre immediately to report security incidents, medical emergencies and suspicious people or vehicles. RAG is committed to proactive security to keep our community safe. However, we are dependent on an active community with alert eyes and ears, so do not hesitate to report suspicious activity ANYWHERE in Bedfordview.

In the event of a security or medical emergency at your home, please press your panic button for the swiftest response from our reaction vehicles.

For your information, this is the process that our RAG control centre follows, in order to provide you with the optimal security service:

Alarm activations
Upon an alarm activation RAG dispatches a reaction vehicle immediately. The control centre will call the client while the vehicle is on route. Notifications are also sent to the client on the App provided below. Once contact has been made with the RAG client, and it is established that everything is safe, the vehicle dispatch is cancelled.

The App can be downloaded using the following links (Please note only the nominated parties will have access to the App, so please advise us who you wish to have access)
Apple & Android

For panic activations
RAG does not call on panic activations and will immediately dispatch reaction vehicles.

VIP Home Tuck-in Service
If you are feeling unsafe while on your way home, or are making your way home late at night, please make use of our “tuck-in” service, any time of the day, or night. Call our control centre to make arrangements.

Please call our Control room for all false activations to avoid vehicles being dispatched unnecessarily 011 455 7022

RAG is a proud founding member of Better Bedfordview, a non-profit community organisation that is cleaning up, restoring and maintaining Bedfordview. With funding and support from residents and businesses, Better Bedfordview employs a team of previously unemployed people who sweep streets, tidy, pick-up litter, weed, cut grass, paint kerbs and speedbumps, pave, and plant. Better Bedfordview is also fixing potholes. Studies show that criminals are deterred by a neat, well-maintained neighbourhood where community members are active and engaged and care about their environment.
