Overview

In the City's Growth and Development Strategy one of the priorities is dealing with crime.

The Johannesburg Metropolitan Police Department (JMPD) has a "broken window approach" of dealing with the small issues of crime alongside the bigger ones. In terms of this philosophy, the prevention of smaller crimes is believed to have a knock-on effect, helping to cut more serious crimes. The JMPD manages and co-ordinates the City's crime prevention strategy, which includes:

  • Preventative policing and patrolling of high-risk areas;
  • Establishing an information management system to share crime data with the South African Police Service (SAPS);
  • CCTV in public places;
  • Anti-fraud technology;
  • Signs warning pedestrians and tourists of risk areas;
  • Effective street lighting in high risk areas;
  • Private security partnerships and partnerships with businesses in high crime areas;
  • Family and community programmes for high risk areas; and
  • Community policing forum partnerships.

In addition to crime prevention, by-law enforcement is a core competence of local government. The City's by-laws have been amended and the JMPD will promote awareness and ensure enforcement of these by-laws
