Crime Statistics for Sunset Beach and Sunset Links for April 2019

This is the Crime Watch update for April 2019 and the crime statistics for the month.

The chart below shows the year on year comparison from January to April in each of the years. Last month there were a total of three reported incidents, two of which involved the same individual who was subsequently arrested by Crime Watch for house robbery and theft.

 

The chart below shows the total number of crime related incidents reported (to Crime Watch & SAPS) each month during 2019 v 2018.

The chart below reflects the type of crime that has occurred during the years 2015-2019 during the months of January to April. The real concern here is the sharp rise in House Break-ins of which there have been eight this year that have taken place.

A House Break in is when there is no-one at a property when criminals enter as opposed to House Robberies which is when someone is at the property of which there has been one incident.

These tables reflect the total percentage of responses completed per minute – for example a total of 91% of the total responses of 346 (therefore 315 responses) were completed within 9 minutes.

Key:
AR = Armed Robbery
BB = Business Break In
CJ = Car Jacking
FRD = Fraud
HB = House Break in
HJ = Hijacking
HR = House Robbery
ROB = Robbery
TFMV = Theft from Motor Vehicle
THEFT = Theft
TOMV = Theft of Motor Vehicle

NB If a crime is not reported to either Crime Watch or SAPS it will not be recorded on the graphs above, or a request has been made by the victim, or SAPS not to publicise it.

 

RESPONSE TIMES: April 2019

The tables below confirm our response times for Sunset Beach during APRIL 2019 for your information. We carried out a total of 346 responses in the month. This does not include all the responses that we do, that are cancelled when the vehicle is on route due to a false alarm being confirmed by the client.
