The release of the second quarter crime statistics for 2022/23 has proven that there is strong evidence pointing towards the infiltration of top management structures in Western Cape SAPS and how it has directly affected our crime-fighting efforts.
In comparison to the recorded statistics of June to September last there, there was an increase of 21.8% in contact crimes, 23.6% in sexual offences, 14.1% in contact-related crimes, and 14.3% in property-related crime.
These figures further highlight the fact that the national government does not take policing seriously in our province, which means that men- and women-in-blue will continue to find it increasingly more difficult to effectively fight crime and keep our communities safe.
