A robbery is one of the most serious and potentially dangerous crimes committed in South Africa today. A robber commits a holdup because he or she believes that their profit will be worth the risk. By decreasing the possible profit and increasing the risk of apprehension, potential victims can reduce their chance of becoming a target.


Personal vigilance is key to remaining safe in South Africa. Like any big city throughout the world, Gauteng has its share of crime. Police urge you to take appropriate precautions for your personal safety.

What we are saying is this, pay attention to your surrounding, be vigilant, don't be gullible and don't draw attention to yourself.

You might just attract the wrong kind of attention. Thieves target people driving expensive cars or anybody who has just made an expensive purchase inside a store.
