The South African Policing Union wants the Auditor General to probe how two-thirds of the more than 36-million-Rands bill for this year's national police day celebration in Johannesburg was spent on entertainment, food and drinks.
Secretary general Oscar Skommere calls it wasteful expenditure and wants heads to roll.
The union also calls for the cancellation of national police day celebrations, saying the millions-of-Rands should rather be spent on delivering services to communities.
