About Galven Security
Galven Security was founded in 1997 in Warmbaths (Bela-Bela), and started with armed response and guards. In 2001 Galven Security also started its own control room and alarm installations.
Mr Piet Burger is the director of this outstanding business. He was an employee of the saps for more than 30 years, and since 1981 a member of the community. He has always strived to serve the community and to see to their safety. He has been involved in charitable organizations such as “Round Table”, “Lions” and “Rotary” for numerous years.
Meetings are been attend at on a regular basis at the SAPS, to discuss crimes, and modus operandi of syndicates and criminals. We rely heavily on the saps and have a good work relationship with the members. We tend to assist the saps in any matter to help combat crime in the community.
We’ve had numerous breakthroughs with house breakings, shop theft, grab and run, and smash and grab. One of our biggest breakthroughs was when our wide awake guards reported an armed robbery in progress on a cash van in front of ABSA bank, to our control room and gave the directions to which area they have fled. Mr Burger and Mr Barnard gave chase, and cornered them in the location until the SAPS arrived on the scene. A big sum of money was recovered, and nobody was injured.
All our employees are always on the lookout for suspicious actions, people, and/or vehicles. In this manner we’ve had numerous successes of goods being stolen out of vehicles, where as the owner/driver was not even aware of.
