The South African National Crime Prevention Strategy (NCPS) was launched on 22 May 1996 as a long-term interdepartmental strategy involving various state departments and civil society in order to establish a comprehensive integrated policy framework to address South Africa's crime problems and to develop national crime prevention programmes. It advocates a wide responsibility for crime prevention and a shift in emphasis from reactive crime control towards proactive crime prevention.
