Aggravated Robberies Increased

Crime is a word that you will see in every newspaper, printed and online, every day, across South Africa. According to Wikipedia, this is a prominent issue in South Africa. This is what the rest of the world sees and most, view our country as a crime invested place. Many people moving out of South Africa say that the main deciding factor was the increase in crime.

The Factsheet: South Africa’s Crime Statistics for 2015/16, states that COMMON robberies were on average 148.2 being recorded each day during this time. The definition of robberies with aggravated circumstances, according to the report is “when a person uses a gun or weapon to unlawfully and intentionally forcefully remove property belonging to another person”. Recorded robberies with AGGRAVATING circumstances, between April – December 2016, increased dramatically to 390.7 each day. These numbers are only those recorded. So many crimes go without being reported.

Shocking statistics that spark worry in every home and business owner and, if it doesn’t bother you, it should, because you or a loved one could be next. As the number of population grows, so will crime. Common robberies are easily escalating to aggravated robberies, because the need to get money for drugs, sex etc. increase and the perpetrator realises that they don’t get caught either easily of quickly. It is up to you to secure your loved ones and valuables.
