Over the last decade, selected police precincts have continued to bear the burden of certain violent and property-related crimes in South Africa. Honeydew and Sandton in Johannesburg remain the top-ranked precincts for house robbery, while the precinct of Johannesburg has kept the top ranking for business robbery for the last ten years.
