In order to combat the crime of house robbery successfully, the South African Police Service (SAPS) needs to find and / or apply an effective policing strategy to deal with it. Internationally, intelligence-led policing has proven to be one of the most effective ways of combating crime. However, in order for the SAPS to successfully apply intelligence-led policing in combating house robberies, the organisation must first gather as much information as possible on this type of crime.
This article provides an overview of the information on the modus operandi of house robbers that could be obtained from interviewing incarcerated house robbers and the value of such crime intelligence.
