She will look at what the data suggests about demographic profiles and crime, the interaction of unemployment and crime, and the short and long-term impact of intermittent restrictions on alcohol during lockdown. More recently, whether there is any suggestion in the data of an observable impact of load-shedding, of changes in allocations to police stations, and of increases in deployment of the Law Enforcement Advancement Plan (LEAP) in the Western Cape.
