n SA Crime Quarterly - Impact of legislation on Gauteng's enclosed neighbourhoods : do the means defeat the ends?

The province is also ahead in its enactment of policy and legislation to regulate the restriction of access to public spaces for safety purposes. The goals of many residents are however likely to conflict with the legal provisions.

They may not search vehicles or people, or require registers to be completed, or request personal information from visitors to the area.
