The extent of Alpha’s business.

When Mr Conradie took over Alpha Security, it was a small company comprising
of 30 guards and it has now grown to one of the biggest security companies in Zululand and one of the biggest in KZN.They currently employ over 900 guards
in our Hluhluwe, Richards Bay and Eshowe and Pietermaritzburg sections, a lot
of whom are ex-military servicemen. The company have 73 vehicles deployed
over the area. The company is run according to a strict disciplinary code and
along strict disciplinary lines. The guards are registered with PSIRA and are paid according to their recommended PSIRA wage scale. Alpha makes use of ex-SADF
and SAP members to run the operations. Some of them were in 32 Battalion or
Recce Commando. These men were of the best soldiers in the Army and are not easily intimidated.

Since being taken over, Alpha has seen unprecedented growth, notwithstanding a policy of limited advertising. Our best advertisement is a satisfied client. Ninety percent of the work we get is through referrals from satisfied clients. Alpha’s
mission is to do all the security work from Durban up to the Mozambique border.
We are currently investigating the possibility to open a few more branches in KZN and Mpumalanga.

Alpha’s headquarters are situated in Hluhluwe with Supervisors stationed in all
of the area’s where we work. Our area of operation includes the whole north
coast of KZN and inland to Vryheid, Melmoth, Eshowe and Pietermaritzburg.

in the area. We have developed a farm protection system over the past few years that we have successfully implemented in various areas. We are currently doing in the region of 700 000 ha of rural security.

Alpha Security believes in a pro-active approach to security. The Hluhluwe area
is a good example of an area where this approach has been very successful. Hluhluwe town and surrounding area is one of the areas in Natal with the lowest crime rate. This is achieved by a very good information system in combination
with a pro-active approach to crime from Alpha Security side. Alpha is used by various organizations to assist in drawing up area protection plans involving all sectors in a community.

Before any deployment of guards in an area a detailed area study is done where aerial photographs and crime history of an area is used to plan the operation with military precision.

As we believe in an information-based system, we work closely with other security organizations like the SAPS, SANDF and other intelligence organizations. We
possess an extended information network that often sees the criminal arrested before the crime is committed. As communication is vital for a well-organized operation Alpha Security became a registered radio dealer. We have radio and
data repeaters that cover 95% of our operational area.

before employment. In case of any problem on a site we test our guards to
