The July crime stats reveal that the general decrease in criminal activity in Jeffreys Bay continues.
This trend started in 2009 and can be attributed to hard work by an under resourced Police Force, strong Neighbourhood Watches in the various suburbs and an active Community Police Forum (CPF).
However, house robberies remain a constant problem, with Wavecrest once again being targeted by criminals.
Houses are now being broken into on a Sunday and Monday nights between midnight and 6 am, according to the latest crime analysis.
The Cedar Avenue area of Wavecrest is still a hot spot and residents are urged to be vigilant in this part of Jeffreys Bay.
The Police and the Crime Intelligence Unit are working on the problem and some arrests have already been made.
Another positive that emerged at last night’s CPF meeting is that no serious incidents were reported during the Billabong Pro.
The suburbs of Paradise Beach, Aston Bay, Marina Martinique and C Place all reported virtually no crime during the past month.
