Policing in the country has come under the spotlight in recent months. 

Issues relating to senior police officials being involved in corruption and the Farlam Commission of Inquiry into the Marikana tragedy came under the spotlight.

The state of policing in South Africa has been described as a crisis. 

Institute for Security Studies Johan Burger said lots of questions are being asked now about police leadership on the one hand about the use of force in the police service about the ability of the public order police unit and also the ability of the police in general to effectively fight crime.

Burger adds that police in many ways are facing a crises and Burger also says the police are in a number of ways trying to deal with issues.

Burger said he feels that solutions to the issues are not easy, are not simple and hopefully the new leadership will be able to address it in this year.
