Reliable statistics indicate that there is an increase on a yearly basis in criminal activities within postal services globally. The South African Post Office as part of a global institution, it is not immune to types of crimes associated to this industry. For the South African Post Office (SAPO) to play a leading role in reducing crime upward trajectory line, it has to seriously impose on security measures to reduce it. This paper is therefore based on the study that was conducted in the South African Post Office, North East Region. The primary objective of this study is to recommend crime prevention strategies which can assist in reducing crime and conscientising the South African Post Office employees on the effects of crime and the consequence thereof. The research method employed in the study was both qualitative and quantitative.
