Mitchells Plain, Kraaifontein, Delft and Atlantis police stations were the top four of the top 30 stations. Bellville, Strand, Parow and Manenberg took positions 26 to 29.
The 2018/19 stats showed figures were trending downwards since 2017/2018. While in 2017/18, 36.2% of all drug-related crimes in South Africa occurred in the province, this year the province recorded 34.96% of all drug-related crimes in the country.
Anine Kriegler, of the UCT Centre for Criminology, noted that recorded drug-related crime figures fell by 28% year-on-year. She said that figure represents probably about 100000 people who didn't get arrested, for what she is almost certain was cannabis possession.
Asked how she came to this figure, Kriegler said: “There were more than 90000 fewer incidents of drug-related crime recorded by the SAPS in 2018/19 compared with 2017/18. Previous years saw increases of 10% or more each year. That is how I arrived at the figure of 100000.
