Director Chris Denny received 300 cameras this week ready to be installed in 300 homes who want to take up the company’s private security service.
Denny said: “Today we all must take home protection seriously and Cook Islands Security invites 300 homes to join our 24-hour patrol network.”
In June, Denny was calling on homeowners to be vigilant and exercise caution as home break-ins had increased.
In July Denny and his team were called to a private residence to provide protection.
A woman was home alone with her daughters when she heard noises and saw lights from a vacant house next door – she called the security team.
Denny said calls like these encouraged him to also focus on private homes and not tourism businesses alone.
Denny who lost around 90 per cent of his holiday accommodation clients due to Covid, is now shifting to protecting families and their homes.
Besides their security service, the team will now respond to any life-threatening situation, as they have finally completed their First Responders training.
“As well as having 24/7 security and First Responders, every property will display one of our Cook Islands Security surveillance cameras,” he said.
“Who knows what tomorrow brings but at least for now having effective security to protect family and property over the next 12 months is important.
“This is more than the mower going missing, it is about having someone there when you need it.”
