Stock Theft

Brigadier Vinesh Singh, Head of the Stock Theft Unit in Pretoria made a presentation to the National Stock Theft Prevention Forum held in March 2014 illustrating statics of stock theft and the targets and outcomes relating to detection rates, cases to court, trial ready cases and conviction rates within the provinces as well as on a national basis.  The green block indicates that actions relating to stock theft cases are above the acceptable averages and the red block indicates below the average.  See slides of full presentation.

During the recent National Stock Theft Forum meeting, provincial representatives from the Red Meat Producers' Organisation and the South African Police Services raised concern over the slow finalisation rate of stock theft cases in certain areas.
