High perimeter privacy VS high perimeter security

With crime statistics consistently on the increase in South Africa, as is the case around the world, a devastated economy and exceptionally high unemployment rates made worse by the Coronavirus pandemic, many people choose the privacy of a high wall, thinking it the safest in protecting family and property.

However, as research has shown, high walls do not necessarily equal safety!

As far back as in 2015, a leading criminologist and Deputy Commissioner of Correctional Services had a completely different view of high walls, which you can read here for interest sake.

An article in Fin24 even earlier, quoted Professor Monique Marks as saying that during the course of her studies, most experts agreed that high walls were counter-productive to security

She stated that, “high walls provided criminals with a space to act unseen, and my sense is that it is behind high walls that more serious crimes take place.” Professor Marks went on to say, “the solution lay with increasing visibility with palisade fencing the perfect alternative for solid barriers.”

The choice now rests between privacy and security, or so it would seem. However, choosing palisade fencing isn’t that hard a decision to make if it means real protection for our families and properties.
