Interactive crime stats map for Mandela Bay

Metro Newspaper has developed an interactive map for the Nelson Mandela Bay region, based on the 2011/12 crime statistics released by the South African Police Service yesterday.

The map can be found here.

You must have flash player version 8 or higher in order to view the map, which is unfortunately not available on mobile devices.

This map features the 17 police stations that are within the greater Nelson Mandela Bay geographical footprint. Simply hover your mouse over the police station in your area and a number of relevant statistics will appear to the right of the map.

These include a breakdown of the 2011 and 2012 statistics, with an indication as to whether the crime rate has increased or decreased for the area.

If you would like a further breakdown for a specific area, simply click on the relevant station and a pdf with all the latest statistics will open up on a separate page for your convenience.

*Statistics reflect the period from 1 April 2011 to 31 March 2012 and have been captured from the 2011/12 statistics as released by the South African Police Service yesterday. Metro Newspaper does not accept any responsibility or liability for any errors or omissions.
