Which province in South Africa is the most safest for human beings to tread on. ... none ! Are police not doing enough or criminals always bypass police' tactics to apprehend them? No one knows
Crime is increasing at an alarming rate in South Africa. While South Africa’s national crime statistics make it evident why the country is seen as one of the worst places in the world for violent crime, the Global Organized Crime Index shows that country also carries the dishonour of being a hotspot for things like drug and arms trafficking and environmental crimes.
In Phomolong, Tembisa a man died an atrocious death. His body was found headless lying next to what is suspected to be his car. Phomolong residents were shocked by the way the poor man was executed. The incident allegedly proves that there were people who wanted him dead. If they wanted his car they could've taken it and refrained from taking his life.
Tembisa is crime hotspot. Crime and unemployment are the top two concerns facing the people of Tembisa and Gauteng as a whole. More police are needed, including detectives, to improve the conviction rate and make communities safer.
Community night patrols are also essential when crime rate increases dramatically. Community members can also volunteer to patrol at night. They are often first-responders to accidents, injuries, fights and deaths within the community, defuse volatile situations and manage many of their own family and community disputes without police intervention. Community patrols fulfil the criteria of community involvement and ownership, empowerment and collaboration. In South Africa, some indigenous communities are among those most at risk, experiencing high levels of violence and social and psychological alienation. Ensuring the safety of individuals, particularly women and children, in such communities is a challenge, but community engagement can play a big role in eradicating crime.
