Santam auditors say crime stats mirror trends in claims data

Following the crime statistics released today, Business Against Crime SA (BACSA) is calling for coordinated dialogue between business and government to improve the criminal justice system.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Peter Moyo, the chairperson of Business Against Crime SA.

Whitfield also spoke to Santam's Audit and Forensic Services head, Helen Du Toit.

Du Toit highlighted key statistics that mirror trends identified in their own claims data for 2014/2015.

Some of the most notable of these are an increase in the reported incidence of domestic and business break-ins as well as the frequency of hijackings.

It’s interesting that cash-in-transit robberies have come down massively. We must extend this to other areas.
