Discussing criminal signs

Making a Dfference founder Penny Steyn.


Making A Difference (Mad) will host its Domestic Watch Meetings for February which aim to teach those attending about the common signs used by criminals.

Penny Steyn from Mad said, “Over the 16 years of running these lessons, I have had numerous calls from those who have been attacked only to spot the signs after the horror experience. Since criminals have their own informers they pay, how can we be naive and think that they don’t have a form of signing which homes to attack?

“We simply cannot ignore telltale signs. It is an interesting lesson about multifaceted signs to be aware of.”

  • Bedfordview at the Bedfordview Methodist Church, 1 De Wet Road on 22 February at 2pm
