The state of policing in South Africa (infographics)

Our Legal Intern Thandeka Kathi has produced these infographics on the state of policing in South Africa, based on the article  “Police top brass under fire”  by Denise Williams of TimesLive.

1. “Of the 23960 detectives in the country, 19235 were only trained in basic crime investigations.”

2. “Of the 1133 station commanders, only 817 had completed the required training course.”

3. “Another contentious issue was the late implementation of e-dockets”.  The e-docket system is supposed to take over the existing manual docket system in police stations. So far, out of the 79 police stations that the e-docket scanners were rolled out to, they are only operational in 20.

4. “In the crime intelligence unit, there were 7938 members, but only 1019 had security clearance certificates.” Security clearance certificates are given to people who have passed security screening process.
