The Democratic Alliance says the police watchdog needs sharper teeth.
It has been revealed in Parliament that the SA Police Service has ignored more than 96-percent of recommendations made by the Independent Complaints Directorate.
The DA’s Diane Kohler-Barnard says the level of criminality and misconduct in the SAPS is unacceptably high.
Meanwhile, the African Christian Democratic Party’s Steve Swart has expressed their disapproval of the Independent Complaints Directorate’s annual report.
