n SA Crime Quarterly - Tackling crime at provincial level : the Gauteng Safety Strategy : 2006-2014

Volume 2007, Issue 19
  • ISSN : 1991-3877



As in the case of Operation Iron Fist, reviewed in the previous article in this issue, the Gauteng Department of Community Safety has been at the forefront of innovative ways to improve safety in the province. This article briefly summarises the Gauteng provincial government's Safety Strategy, adopted by the Provincial Executive in August 2006, and which will be publicly launched on 30 March 2007. The strategy is both comprehensive and ambitious, and as the first to provide a strategic framework for tackling violent and serious crime at the provincial level, will no doubt provide important lessons for other provinces to learn from.
