Previously, crime prevention was the main responsibility of the police. Today it is the joint
responsibility of partners such as government departments, non-government organisations,
the private sector, community-based organisations and members of the public.

1. To aid in the prediction of criminal activities.
2. To improve service delivery by security agencies.
3. To reduce animosity between the police and communities.
4. To promote information sharing between security agencies and policing partners.
