Expertise

Together with the Centre for Public Innovation and SAPS, Memeza developed the first GSM based Alarm system, the “Memeza Community Safety Alarm”,  fully integrated with SAPS and Community Policing structures, developed specifically for the low income communities.  This low cost, intelligent alarm system is the best value for money in the market today.

Memeza Shout Crime Prevention is an organization that contribute towards the Prevention and Reduction of crime and violence. We promote community safety through an integrated approach, ensuring participation and cohesion of communities. In short, we are about bringing people together and mobilising communities in time of need.

Further to the security technology tools we provide to the most vulnerable people in society, we provide communities with Education and Awareness around crime prevention.

Further to the above, Memeza strives to create jobs in all the communities we work in, therefore providing a “Business in a Box” model, where we train community members to become installers, maintenance and resellers, of the Memeza Alarm Systems.
