mounted security patrols

Horse Security patrols

Mvelamaswazi Security started deploying horses and mounted guards since its inception.  We were pioneers in deploying mounted security officers for crime prevention duties.  We have had a lot of success in this division and services include:

  • Protection of cable and rail networks in rural areas
  • Patrolling Golf estates
  • Crowd management at special events
  • Anti-Poaching follow up operations
  • Patrolling large parking areas
  • Farm properties

The welfare of our horses is of paramount importance to us.  We have an excellent reputation in the industry pertaining to the use and deployment of horses as a security company.  The advantages of having a mounted officer above a man on foot is obvious.  The rider and horse is extremely intimidating when controlling peaceful crowds of people.  The horses and officers demand respect and in the same sentence are people friendly and are admired by most.  Mobility is another aspect and advantage a mounted rider has over a man on foot.  Horses are environmentally friendly and are quiet whilst patrolling.

Alarm System Security

Layered Security
When assessing how to secure business premises, the key to adequately protecting staff, as well as stock and equipment, is to create several layers of security to provide an early warning system that will alert management to the presence of any unwanted intruders.

A business owner that invests in a layered security system buys valuable time during an emergency, time that could literally diffuse serious crimes like burglaries and armed robberies by stopping intruders in their tracks. Layered security results in an early alarm activation and gives staff and management more time to press a further panic button and get staff to safety to avoid a confrontation and potential physical injury.

Layered security is about placing as many barriers between intruders and the business’ staff and valuables as possible. These barriers may include:

  • CCTV street surveillance cameras as part of a secure business precinct project
  • Internal CCTV surveillance cameras
  • Electric fencing linked to the alarm system
  • Outdoor passive infrared (PIR) detector beams
  • Glass-smashing sensors on windows
  • Access control and other related services
  • Biometrics

Every area of a business needs to be professionally assessed to ensure vulnerable points are adequately secured, from the driveway gates, which may need an anti-gate-crashing kit, to offices, storerooms, production areas, and even the roof, which must not be neglected as it is a fairly common point of entry for burglars.


A business alarm system can be set up with anything from a simple eight zone panel, to a more complex 168 zone system, to ensure that in the event of a burglary the control centre will immediately identify the exact offices and outdoor areas that intruders have breached. Several fixed and remote panic alarms are supplied with the business alarm system so that, in case of an emergency, staff can discreetly alert us to promptly respond to the scene.

Our quality business alarm systems are sourced from leading global suppliers and fitted to deter, detect and detain criminals, with the priority of always keeping its business clients and their staff safe and preventing financial losses.
