Shadow Crime Report released
26 September 2012
The Western Cape Department of Community Safety today released the “Shadow Crime Statistics report”.
Community Safety MEC Dan Plato said the annual Crime Statistics have been criticised for being reactive and out-dated.
The Shadow Crime Report is a new tool that the Department has developed to monitor murder-statistics more pro-actively using alternative data sources instead of having to rely on out-dated annual crime statistics.
This information allows us to analyse trends and thereby be more pro-active with our resources and responses.
