Frequently Asked Questions
  • Can I personally hire security guards for my neighbourhood?

    Every neighbourhood in Cape Town has a different security system. If there is no neighbourhood security, you are welcome to hire a private company that operates in your area in Cape Town. However, you’ll probably have to get the other residents in your neighbourhood to comply and pay a fee. If there is a specific security company in Cape Town monitoring your neighbourhood, they’ve probably already organised neighbourhood security guards. Make sure that you are paying for your security services along with the other people in your neighbourhood.
  • Is it possible to reduce the monthly cost of a security guard?

    Security guards will take a specific number of shifts each week. Security could become cheaper if you reduce the number of security guards or patrol cars in the area. Sometimes you can opt to have stronger security at night when properties tend to be more vulnerable. However, cheaper security usually means you are compromising your levels of safety.
  • What duties do security guards perform?

    1. Patrol the area and look out for any suspicious activities

    2. Investigate any disturbances

    3. Fight off intruders

    4. Alert armed response teams in the event of a crime or emergency

    5. Control access into an area, neighbourhood or property

    6. Direct traffic if necessary
  • How many security guards are required for 24/ 7 patrolling?

    You’ll need 4-6 security guards, however, every security company in Cape Town will have their own protocol. The industry standard for security guarding shifts is 12 hours. This means you’ll need at least 2 security guards to work each day. You cannot have the same security guards working consecutively each day, especially if they are doing the night shift. Remember that if you’re trying to secure a large property or area in Cape Town you might need more security guards for effective safety.
  • How do I know if a security guard is qualified?

    All security guards in South Africa should be registered with Private Security Regulatory Industry Authority (PSIRA). The authority ensures that the security guards can legally work in South Africa, have adequate training, no criminal record and are receiving payments/ employee benefits. However, there are many security guards who are informally hired.
  • Is it helpful to hire an unarmed security guard?

    Security guards can be extremely helpful even if they are unarmed. They often act as a deterrent and stop people from intruding or committing crimes. In addition, they are able to monitor the property. If anything happens while they are on shift, they can alert the relevant authorities in Cape Town.
  • Do all security guards do the same training?

    No. There are different requirements for different security companies. However, there is an industry standard for registered security guards. In some cases, security guards will have basic first aid training. It’s beneficial to confirm the skills that your hired security guards have. Private security companies in Cape Town usually train security guards very well.
