Poor Safety: Crime and Policing in South Africa's Rural Areas

"The purpose of this monograph is therefore to indicate the extent and nature of crime in ‘deep’ rural areas inhabited largely by the poor. It also outlines how crime affects people in the rural areas, and maps some of the issues, particularly those related to policing, which are relevant to the reduction of crime in the rural areas. It is hoped, therefore, that the monograph can contribute to the policy process of the department of safety and security."
