Crime statistics

Crime is an issue of concern to every person irrespective of their background or status in society. The fear of crime affects the way people live, travel and work. The crime and safety vision of the National Development Plan (NDP) is to have a crime-free South Africa by 2030. According to the NDP, the evidence of a crime-free country will be: People living in South Africa feel safe at home, at school and at work, and they enjoy a community life free of fear. Women walk freely in the streets and children play safely outside. The police service is well-resourced and professional, staffed by highly skilled officers who value their work, serve the community, safeguard lives and property without discrimination, protect the peaceful against violence, and respect the rights to equal justice To achieve the vision five areas of intervention have been prioritized, namely (1) Strengthen the criminal justice system (2) Make the police service professional (3) Demilitarise the police (4) Increasing rehabilitation of prisoners and reducing recidivism and (5) Build safety using an integrated approach.
