  • The number of vehicle crime related arrests made
  • Number of vehicle crime related arrested suspects charged on the CAS
  • Number of vehicle crime related arrested suspects charged in court
  • Number of suspects convicted
  • Number of years imprisonment obtained in court for each person convicted
  • Number of vehicles confiscated and positively identified by owners; and
  • Number of second-hand dealers operating without a valid certificate in terms of the Second –hand Goods Act (Act No 23 of 1955) closed down
  • Number of firearms confiscated during the period
