remember that 90% of schools don’t experience violence; crimes … according to a
recent report by Education Secretary, Richard Riley … the numbers of teenagers

That is why I support the NCPS,
Government, Community and Oriented Policing Services (COPS). The NCPS,
COPS in school program will help address early problems that often lead to
juvenile crime. It will also build positive relationships among officers,
students and communities.
Having offers closely involved
in the schools will help create safety net. It means police can work
together with students to tackle problems that are important to them.
Across the country communities
are taking a stand and reclaiming their neighborhoods by working together with
Law Enforcement Officials to search for long lasting solutions against crime.
Success stories show bold
changes in communities where this strategy has been fully embraced.

ANALYSIS OF THE DATA
The situation cannot be
tolerated in which our country continues to be engulfed by the crime wave,
which includes murder, crimes against women and children child trafficking,
drug trafficking, armed robbery, fraud and theft. We must take the war to
the criminals and no longer allow the situation in which we are mere sitting
ducks of those in our society who, for whatever reason, are bent to engage in
criminal and anti-social activities. Instructions have therefore already
gone out to the minister of safety and security, the National Commissioner of
the Police Service and the Security Organs as a whole to take all necessary
measures to bring down the levels of crime. (President N. R. Mandela, 17
Feb. 1995 Cape Town).
Part of the response to the
President’s speech was the development of the SAPS 1995 ‘Community Safety
Plan’, a package of short-term policing measures aimed at tackling the priority
of crimes in the country. In May 1995, an inter-departmental strategy
team, composed largely of civilian officials, began the process of drafting a
long-term crime prevention strategy, which would become known as the National
Crime Prevention Strategy (NCPS). The intention was that the long-term
strategy would tackle the root causes of crime, in parallel to the police’s
community safety plan, which would deliver more effective responses to crimes,
which had already been committed or planned. This bifurcation is
essential to an understanding of the shift in government crime prevention
policy in the five years since the NCPS was adopted. At that time, the
tough, crime combating approach was contained in the community safety plan (and
later the various police plans), and the planning and implementation processes
for those were entirely cabinet has asked us to design the process which will
eventually culminate in a comprehensive and holistic National Crime Prevention
Strategy. The NCPS, which eventually emerges should be owned by the
broadcast possible cross-section of South Africa’s population, and should go beyond
a mere police response to crime. In considering the process, which should
be followed, this committee should bear in mind the complexity of the causes of
crime and therefore pay proper attention to political, social and economic
causes and manifestations of crime. If this committee succeeds with its
task, the NCPS could result in answers to the question. What is crime
prevention all about? It could result in a recognized and coordinated
government response to crime, and in a greater role for civil society and
communities in the prevention of crime. (Mufamadi, May 1995).
BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
The notion that the crime rate
in a country is affected by the state of its economy has a common sense appeal
to most individuals. This belief would especially apply to the Nigeria
where theoretically our free-market economy, with its relatively low-funded
social programs compared to other western democracies, leaves the
underprivileged more at the mercy of changing market forces. According to
this instinct ional approach and most of the “economic” models of criminology,
a flagging economy leads to more joblessness, less money for charity and
“safety net” programs, and greater difficulty for individuals trying to find or
maintain income to sustain the basic needs of their families. As a
result, those individuals will more likely turn to criminal activity as a means
of income for these basic needs, since the benefit of lawful activity no longer
outweighs the risks of criminal activity (these risks, such as injury at the
hands of a potential victim, incarceration, social and familial pressures
against crime, etc. are viewed as the “costs” of criminal activity in the
From the perspective of the
Department of Public Advocacy, increase crime caused by a bad economy
presumably committed inordinately by the economically disadvantaged, could have
a significant impact on our individual and agency – wide caseloads. The
current economic downturn has shown some signs of recovery, but the economic
situation is not flying high like it was two years ago. Even if the
situation merely stagnates, there is still cause for concern since any local,
state, or national bumps in the economy usually hit the poor first and hardest.
Despite this common sense
reasoning, there is substantial debate among economists regarding the link
between crime and the economy. The parties to the debate are usually
divided and labeled into two familiar camps. Specifically, “conservative”
economists minimize the link between economy and crime, arguing that committing
a crime is more an individual choice or flaw, while “liberal” economists
emphasize the role of institutions, family structure and societal forces in the
commission of crimes. Despite this debate, the majority of recent
scholarly analysis has found that crime rates are directly related to the
economy. The articles offer varying degree of certainty on this point and
even disagree about whether the relationship to economic factors only exists
for property crimes (and not for violent crimes) or for all crimes. The
two main relevant areas of analysis drawn from the research are (1) wages and
unemployment generally and (2) the 1990s economic “boom” and crime “bust” and
what both can tell us about the crime/economy connection. Each segment
with the two categories will focus on a specific scholarly writing on crime and
ASSOCIATED WITH THE SUBJECT MATTER
The primary factor to be
considered in the health of any free market economy is employment. Even
if the top corporations in the Nigeria were experiencing huge profits or the
world was in a state of virtual peace, such gains would matter little to most
Nigerians if they are severely underpaid or could not even find a job. Economists
have performed extensive research into how our society is affected by
meaningful employment and its absence. They have combined their efforts
with those of criminologists to explore how fluctuations in the state of
joblessness will impact the crime rate (or vice versa). Some of their
findings are discussed below.
THAT THE STUDY WILL BE CONCERNED WITH
There are many problems that
the study will be concerned with.
Some of which can be explained
To identify provincial crime prevention priorities.
To identify provincial role-players for possible crime prevention programmes.
To identify location and responsibility for provincial programmes.
To establish provincial co-ordination teams for crime prevention programmes.
To involve all government department and civil society organizations in crime.
IMPORTANT OF STUDYING THE SUBJECT AREA.
The study will bring to the light NCPS into the society and organization.
The NCPS will progress or can
make control in combating crime.
The Government itself with this study knows the importance of the role of NCPS
in any society. And how efficient training can increase the rate of
Other societies will benefit
from it and help them to carry out their duties by giving the information.
This study will serve as an impact to a further crime control
And besides, it will reverse
other areas of crime.
