Creating safe communities – dealing with crime

Crime affects everyone in South Africa. We all want to live in peaceful communities. Creating them is not only the work of the police, but of every citizen. Different communities have tried to address crime in different ways, and what works in one community might not work in another. But this does not mean that communities cannot learn from each other. This study circle guide contains success stories from many different communities. These are stories of hope. They show what ordinary people can do when they organise themselves and collaborate with the police and with local government to build safer communities. This workbook contains: guidelines for • or ten study circle meetings; • tasks to do between meetings; • suggestions for how study circle members can take action together to address problems related to community safety. See the workbook here.
