National Key Points

INTRODUCTION

'National Key Point' or 'Key Point' means any place or area which has under section 2 been declared a National Key Point; in terms of The National Key Points Act 102 of 1980.


FINDINGS

Combating crime in South Africa is a dangerous and financially draining exercise.  Official crime fighting agencies experience unbelievable difficulties in controlling the threat. The reason for this is simple: 21st century criminals have replaced the masked robbers of the past. 

The sooner we accept that fighting crime is no longer a game and realise that any threat can be dealt with when approached correctly, the sooner we shall succeed. Therefore PSIRA have in the past few months made several comments regarding the compliance of security operators who have entered the market but have failed to maintain compliance.

In order thus to ensure that your company complies with the regulation, EKHURHULENI SHOOTING TRAINING ACADEMY has positioned itself to provide training services to ensure that their industry accreditation remains legal.
