SECURITY AT GATEWAY THEATRE OF SHOPPING DURING THE FESTIVE SEASON
During the festive season our main priority is safeguarding our shoppers and tenants. Additional security personnel have been allocated to enhance security during this time.
We’re continuously working with the local police services to ensure that the correct measures are in place in the event of an emergency.
In addition to this, our retailers who have their own security arrangements within their own premises, operate their own surveillance cameras in their areas.
All our security technologies are checked constantly and all efforts are made to increase tenant and shopper awareness around this period as well.
We advise our shoppers to always be vigilant and careful with their personal belongings – either in their vehicles or on their person.
Shoppers should not leave any valuables in their vehicles and should physically check that their vehicles are locked when using a remote locking device.
