Winning the war on crime in South Africa - a new approach to community policing

Sep 06, 2016
IRR analysts have shown that despite declining by approximately 50% since 1994 South Africa’s murder rate remains significantly higher than that of a series of most other societies.

The rate remains almost seven times higher than that in the United States of America and ten times higher than that in India. The murder rate has also broken its long term pattern of decline and is again increasing. Numbers of residential robberies and business robberies have spiked since 2003. This report was released in Johannesburg in May 2016.
