Why should I attend?
On 27 September 2006, the South African Police Service (SAPS) released South African crime statistics for the first time since 2004, which indicated that there is still an upward spiral in the prevalence of certain crimes in South Africa, such as cash heists, hijackings, drug trafficking and more.

Cash heists in South Africa are becoming increasingly violent and the police are failing to control and identify the mastermind syndicates behind these operations. Drug trafficking is also now a big priority for the SAPS as it is spreading amongst the youth of today and attracting cross-border crime syndicate operations. Furthermore, these syndicates are becoming more devious in obtaining funding for their crimes, often targeting banks or innocent victims in sophisticated cyber crimes operated by international gangs. Phishing, 419 scams and other white collar crimes are rife in Southern Africa. What is being done to combat the proliferation of organised crime syndicates in South Africa? Much controversy surrounds this issue, with speculation of key government officials often being involved.
