Drunk driving has topped the list of crimes recorded in Johannesburg for April.

Johannesburg mayor Herman Mashaba released the Johannesburg Metro Police Department’s (JMPD) crime statistics on Tuesday.

The top six crimes recorded included driving under the influence of alcohol, possession of hijacked or stolen motor vehicles, public violence, possession of unlicensed firearms, reckless and negligent driving as well as the possession or dealing in drugs, the latest stats reveal.

The inner city, BraamfonteinAlexandra and Sandton recorded the highest number of arrests for driving under the influence of alcohol in April, followed by Randburg and Soweto.

Mashaba says the monthly stats assessment is a necessary evaluation for the department to remain accountable and transparent.

The South African Cities Network’s report, which had been released in April suggested, that Joburg was one of the most dangerous cities in the country with robbery being the most prevalent crimes.

Earlier in May, JMPD announced the launch of a dedicated undercover unit to respond to what the cameras record.

The City of Joburg has more than 400 CCTV surveillance cameras operating in the Joburg inner city, with a new undercover unit of 80 JMPD officers deployed to solely deal with illegal activity picke


  1. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s
    both equally educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is something too few people are speaking
    intelligently about. Now i’m very happy that I stumbled across this in my
    search for something concerning this.

    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for
    a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m
    totally overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Thanks a

  4. Howdy! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform
    are you using for this website? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with
    hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another
    platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of
    a good platform.

    Hmm it seems like your site ate my first
    comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum
    it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the
    whole thing. Do you have any suggestions for rookie
    blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it. scoliosis

  8. I don’t know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else experiencing issues with your
    site. It appears like some of the text on your content are running
    off the screen. Can somebody else please provide
    feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too?
    This could be a issue with my browser because I’ve
    had this happen previously. Many thanks

  9. First off I would like to say excellent blog! I had a quick question which I’d
    like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to find
    out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.

    I’ve had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my
    ideas out there. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems
    like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying to figure
    out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Thank you!
