South African 2016-2017 crime statistics at police precinct level
Crime statistics are key to identifying the extent of risk within an area. They also identify high priority areas for the implementation of private security initiatives and community patrolling. Statistics on 25 crime types provide invaluable information for decision making in both the public and private sectors. AfricaScope provides the data in a geospatial format. We provide the data as different indicators - raw numbers, ratio of crimes per 100 000 population, year-on-year trends, long term trends and comparisons of levels per police precinct to the national average. Other indicators can be createdby combining crime types and integrating secondary data sources AfricaScope works with specialists in the crime analysis field to help companies and organizations better understand crime trends in South Africa.
