Debates on crime statistics released mean nothing to ordinary people who have to live with the constant fear that it would only be a matter of time before they are victims at the hands of criminals.

SAPS needs to be very visible and active in our communities as a deterrent to crime and there has to be absolute enforcement of law and order by the authorities.
