Councillors Dave Aldendorff, Mercia Ungerer and Brenton Williams all attended the Community Police Forum (CPF) meeting in Jeffreys Bay this week.
Despite the CPF acknowledging that there is still a serious house robbery problem in Wavecrest, no stats were released by the Police to let the public know exactly what the problem is.
By not revealing crime stats, the Police are hampering the war against crime, not only in Jeffreys Bay, but the entire country.
Knowledge is power and if the community is unaware of crime taking place around them , how can they adequately protect ourselves to prevent becoming the next crime statistic in South Africa?
The DA has been fighting for the release of crime stats on a national level, to little avail thus far.
Paradise Beach, Aston Bay and Marina Martinique have remained relatively crime free in recent months, while there has been an increase of robberies in C Place and the St Croix Street area.
Contact crimes have reduced, as have the number of drink driving arrests.
