The South African Police
Service will soon launch a new National Disciplinary Trial Unit which will deal
will all forms of misconduct within the police ranks.
This comes as criticism has
been levelled against the police in the way they handle disciplinary issues
with a lack of consistency.
The national office has
started recruiting members who will be part of the unit.
Brigadier Vishnu Naidoo said
in order to deal decisively with all forms of misconduct, we are looking at
implementing a national disciplinary trail unit.
“This trial unit will focus on
dealing decisively with members that contravene our regulations, also that have
been charged with criminal offences and also ensure consistency and that the
disciplinary processes are dealt with in good time.” Naidoo said.
Naidoo added that right now we
find that the processes that we are in are lacking consistency and also that
some of the disciplinary proceedings are taking to long and this of cause is
affecting the continent of the public.
