About NYPD

DEAR PARKHURST RESIDENT,I have known most of the staff working in our NYPD vehicels for most of their lives (many long before we started this company) my staff in turn , have known this suburb and patrolled it's streets for almost a generation now. Criminals go to great lengths to 'blend in' with the surroundings, but when you've spend a lifetime in one area, it's not so easy to be taken-in. That's why NYPD are in position to be truly proactive, to know hands-down, who doesn't belong on our streets- far quicker on average- than any other security staff member from an "out-of-town/or large corporate service provider." All that stands in our way of us having a far safer suburb- is sufficient support from our own community. Sincerely Greg Margolis

Today the word “proactive” is bandied about so often within the industry, with so many claiming to offer this service, but very few in our opinion who are truly able to provide it.

Parkview Armed Proaction (PTY) Ltd was founded on the very principal of pro-activity, and there is good reason for this; “Pro-action & not Reaction.” Our first clients were in Parkhurst (and we are proud of this!) proud to have our roots in this community. The truth about pro-activity is that it is ultimately all about focus, focus of attention specifically in a predetermined area; and logically the smaller the area – the greater the focus there!

It’s about being focused enough to know each and every one of your staff members personally, focused enough to know most of the Police officers at your Police station simply by sight, focused enough to know your area and the specific type of crime related challenges it faces, and to be close enough to the ground ‘to keep your ear to it.’

Now consider this; we operate exclusively in one Police Precinct (Parkview Police precinct – YOUR Police Precinct) it was our promise to you when we started – and we’ve kept it! To note; Parkview Police Precinct covers 17 suburbs- that’s right (not a miss-print,) seventeen suburbs! Now consider that Johannesburg has well in excess of twenty such Police precincts- that is to say, suburbs numbering literally in the hundreds!

So if a service provider operates across a City like Johannesburg, how well do those who direct the affairs of that organization really (realistically) know all their staff members? - THINK ABOU IT. How well do they know the officers at “their entire local” Police station(s)? And can they realisticaly have their finger on the pulse of our commuinty's specific needs and ever changing crime trends? – Threats that chop & change daily THINK ABOUT IT.

That’s why Parkview Armed Proaction was established (the essence of this seems to have gotten lost.) We were set up so that we could (with your support) realistically provide a truly proactive service in our suburbs, suburbs falling under the jurisdiction of the Parkview Police Precinct. So next time you hear the word “Proactive” just think about it.

America with all their faults is still arguably the only Super-power in the world today. They have a saying in America, “buy American!”  The essence of this statement is quite simply, that they support their own-that’s why they are a Super-Power. We offer you this suggestion SUPPORT YOUR OWN, Support a company that has its birthplace in your suburb. If enough of us do; we will soon be living in a Super-Save-Suburb! Just-Think about that!
