Persepsies van misdaad in voorheen benadeelde gemeenskappe : die Thusano-projek / Karen van der Berg

This research falls within the scope of the Thusano project to evaluate families concerning a variety
of aspects of which this research specifically focuses on crime. Crime therefore is an act that must
take place contradictory to the judicial system. The aim of the research is to determine the causes of
the perceptions of the community with regard to crime, to identify the crimes that occurs most and
to determine how crime in this community can be reduced. Through this research it was found that
an increase has occurred with reference to certain crime categories, such as violent crime, women
abuse and house theft. The community is of opinion that heavier punishment will lead to prevention
of crime and to more job opportunities. Alcohol abuse also plays a large role in the assaults that take
place during weekends. Furthermore they believe that, with the assistance of the police and the
community, crime can decrease. / Thesis (M.A. (MW))--North-West University, Potchefstroom Campus, 2006.
