~ BACSA, for a safe and secure South Africa where people and businesses live without the threat of crime and violence ~


Business Against Crime South Africa (BACSA) is a non-profit Company, with a Section 18A status (i.e. donor funds are tax deductible by the donor organization) PBO No: 18/11/13/1568, Governed by Board of Directors comprising business leaders representing industry and commerce, including members, executives and office bearers of Business Unity South Africa (BUSA) and Business Leadership South Africa (BLSA).

The organization was established by business in 1996 in response to a request from then President Nelson Mandela who invited business to join hands with Government in the fight against crime. It is a special purpose vehicle, with the sole mandate to engage and give support to Government on crime-related matters.

BACSA has two distinct roles. The first is to get business’ ‘own house in order’ by eliminating crime-enabling processes, systems and approaches, and improving crime prevention measures within the control of business. The second is to partner with Government, when invited, by sharing expertise, information, processes and technologies resident in business.

These roles are fulfilled primarily by mobilising business skills and resources in Government-defined areas of need, and the strategic alignment and coordination of business’ anti-crime strategies and priorities.

BACSA is totally reliant on the commitment and generosity of companies who provide financial and other support . Since its inception, BACSA has supported Governments’ anti-crime efforts in a wide variety of areas across the Criminal Justice System as well as the business sector.
