DA slams police management salaries

The Democratic Alliance says only senior police managers have reaped the benefit of higher salaries while the men and women who put their lives on the line every day remain hugely under paid. DA Spokesperson Roy Jankielsohn slammed Police Commissioner Jackie Selebi’s salary package, saying the police chief’s salary jumped from 339-thousand-591 rand in 1999 to 904-thousand-374 in 2006. Deputy national commissioners, of whom there are at least four, now earn 702-thousand-117 rand. Jankielsohn points out that constables only earn 55-thousand-350 rand. He says the gaping difference in salaries between management and the men and women who do the actual work has to be addressed as soon as possible.
