PUBLIC SPACE SECURITY
Public Space Policing has proven to be effective in reducing the number of contact crimes experienced in residential suburbs. To meet these increasing challenges in the public security area, responsible institutions and organisations can tap into their own intelligence to successfully address possible security threats in advance. They optimise their internal structures, use synergies, and carefully balance costs and benefits of their measures. However, these institutions cannot act alone, as they need the full support of the public (community) to enforce these changes in public spaces. Without public support, threats cannot be combated entirely. The buy-in and support of residents’ associations is key to the effectiveness of this model.
This model not only benefits all members of a community but also encourages community living. It promotes safety outside private properties; being safe on the pavement, jogging in the streets, teaching the kids to ride their bicycles and walking the dogs in the park.
The key objectives of Public Space Security are to:
identify suspicious and criminal activity within the suburb
prevent criminals from getting to their target (your house or driveway)
apprehend criminals, and have them arrested by the SAPS
drive criminal activity out of your suburb
