Description :
The paper assesses the potential use of GIS for policing in South Africa. A data base was developed and GIS was used to analyze and map crime data for the town of Paarl from geographical and environmental-criminological perspectives. The results show that GIS is a useful, effective and necessary tool in combatting crime. The author concludes that the practical application of geography, aided by GIS is indispensable for policing in South Africa. - (AJC)
