-Please be alert when leaving surrounding shopping malls for follow homes. A suspect will stand at the entrance of the Mall and call his assailants with information and thus the follow home usually occurs once you are out of the car park. Double check your surroundings before stooping in your drive way- Call CORTAC for meet and greet services if you are unsure!
– Please be vigilant, criminals are targeting Uber vehicles as they are a soft target for crimes – check your surroundings before Uber stops at your destination.
-Please check credentials of City Power Contracters before you let them in – see details below.
