GAC Risk Solutions joins the E2 Project

GAC Risk Solutions has joined the Eyes and Ears Initiative (E2), it’s an official joint crime-fighting initiative between the South African Police Service (SAPS), Business Against Crime South Africa (BACSA) and the Private Security Industry (PSI) whereby the PSI formally cooperates with the SAPS by relaying information directly to the Provincial Operational Command Centre (POCC) and in some instances, receiving such relevant information directly from it.

“Thus GAC Security has direct access to the SAPS Command Centre”

The PSI, through BACSA, has at least one representative on a 24/7 basis in the POCC. All PSI participants use the agreed Integrated Communications Platform (ICP) which uses the Push-To-Talk (HALO PTT) technology over a Cellular communication network and a Telegram group to communicate with the PSI staff in the E2 POCC.

The objectives of the E2 initiative are:

– To enhance the situational awareness of the SAPS by using the Private Security Industry’s (PSI) geographical deployment footprint for the sharing of information.
– To enhance operational response to crime hotspot areas, violent crimes, TRIO crimes and with specific emphasis on crimes that are heavily dependent on situational information and a shared concern for both the SAPS and the PSI.
– To allow for the PSI to assist each other (and SAPS) were needed in a noncommercial and non-competitive capacity.


ZERO INCIDENTS – Riot deployment Pretoria

Picture is for illustration purposes only

During this Covid-19 lockdown, life isn’t easy, employees and employers are both taking huge financial losses for something that is out of their control. With South-Africa having one of the highest rates of industrial and civil unrest actions and its strikes being well known for its violence, it’s only a matter of time before GAC will be deployed again.

GAC urge all business owners that it must be in every business’s need to be properly prepared for these types of unrest that occur more frequently nowadays.

-Mass actions can not only financially damage any company with regards to property damage, personal injury and production loss, but can also cause serious damage to an established brand and the way the public perceive that brand globally-

-SA should brace for social unrest in the coming months, study finds- The SRI 2020 identifies South Africa as highly vulnerable to social unrest in the next 18 monthThe country is placed 79th out of 102 in the assessment.

GAC strongly believes that the use of force, including non-lethal force, is our last resort. Instead of trying to “beat” the rioters in battle, we develop non-invasive measures to counter-steer all actions that can lead to violence.

Our strategy is not to face the rioters, but rather to safeguard our client’s belongings, building structures, employees and most important of all the companies (clients) name and reputation.


Intruders Spotted Before Crimes Could Be Committed

GAC Off-site monitoring did not only monitor and detect security threats throughout the day or night, but it also provided them with the data needed to build profiling on these suspects

Some of the issues that our off-site monitoring solutions have picked up in the past include security breaches as well as crimes before they were able to be committed.

With off-site monitoring from GAC Risk Solutions, the clients were able to minimize the element of human error and ensure that all daily events and coming-and-going are monitored and recorded

GAC Control Centre operates 24 hours a day. All radio calls are recorded and monitored daily. GAC have immediate access to Medical Services, the Fire Department and the Police Department and their own Quick Reaction Force

Perimeter fences are your first line of defense when it comes to securing your premises. The use of high concrete walls, steel wire fences, electric fences, creates a deterrent – both physical and psychological – to unauthorized entry.

Ask yourself, the following question.

Do you want to be notified when an unwanted intruder already gained/broken through your first line of defense, or do you want to be notified when an unwanted intruder is in process of gaining/breaking through your first line of defense?

Perimeter CCTV systems combined with Off-Site Monitoring is the answer to your question.
