    CITY CENTRE

    Law to jam car burglars

    NICOLE MCCAIN

    @nickymccain

    S

    afety and security agencies in the city

    centre are working towards having re-

    mote jamming devices formally classi-

    fied as implements used to break into cars.

    This as the Cape Town Central City Im-

    provement District (CCID), along with po-

    lice, other improvement districts, communi-

    ty police forums and council law agencies

    enter into talks with the National Prosecut-

    ing Authority (NPA), says Muneeb Hen-

    dricks, safety and security manager of the

    CCID.

    The NPA is the body to prosecute crimi-

    nals, providing it can be proven that the re-

    mote was used to gain access to the car.

    Any common remote can be used to jam

    a car locking or alarm signal, Hendricks ex-

    plains.

    Thewords car break-in implement refer

    to an item used in conjunction with force,

    such as a forcible entry into your car. For

    example, a spark plug can be used to shatter

    your window, a Slim Jim can be used to for-

    cibly open your lock or a screwdriver can

    be used to force open the lock barrel. Howev-

    er, there is no force used when using a re-

    mote jamming device. In addition it is also

    a common item that could reasonably be

    found on any normal person, he adds.

    This means that even though the culprit

    is identified and caught in possession of the

    device, no arrest can bemade unless the cul-

    prit is caught in the car or in possession of

    the stolen items, Hendricks says.

    Remote jammingworks very simply, Hen-

    dricks explains. When a driver presses his

    remote to lock his car, a thief close by will

    press a hidden remote device of his own re-

    peatedly that overwhelms the airwaves in

    the area and blocks the drivers remote sig-

    nal to the car.

    If you simplybeep the remotewhilewalk-

    ing away and you dont physically check

    that the car is locked, there is a fair chance

    that it might in fact not be. It is imperative

    that you physically try to open the door

    yourself before you walk away.

    Remote jamming is particularly problem-

    atic because most insurance companies will

    not pay out unless there is physical proof

    that a theft has occurred, Hendricks ex-

    plains.

    The matter is of such concern that the

    CCID has made it a focal point of its current

    stash it, dont flash it campaign.

    One of the biggest problems with remote

    jamming is that it has made breaking into

    cars a simple daytime crime,whereas before

    if one had to break into a car with force, it

    was mostly done under cover of darkness.

    During the day business people, especial-

    ly, tend to carrymore valuables in their cars

    such as laptops and tablets, so the loss is that

    much greater.

    V Continued on page 2.

    A group of concerned residents from across Cape Town came

    together under the auspices of the #ZumaMustFall campaign in

    the CBD on Thursday. The march on the same day as the Sate

    of the Nation Address saw protesters walk through the city from

    Green Market Square to the Grand Parade. March organiser

    Christelle Scheepers, addressing the crowd, said: We expect

    everyone to be equal in the eyes of the law, including the presi

    dent. PHOTO: LOUISA STEYL
