Ever the optimist, some may say, but I have never been shy to admit that I am
′proudly South African′, I am sure that we WILL stage a successful soccer World Cup in 2010 and I DO know that crime is alive and well in our beautiful country.
I try really hard to focus on the positives rather than the negatives - albeit that I am often greatly outnumbered when the topic of crime is being discussed, but I will do everything in my power to make sure it does not stop me from leading a normal life. And part of being able to do that is being aware of what is going on and doing what you can to not get into situations that are conducive to crime.
(Please understand that I do realise that criminal elements can - and do - find victims who have not intentionally put themselves at risk.)

Crime is a problem, but there are companies out there who have the professional know-how and products to help combat, overcome or even prevent it.
