SAPS crime statistics should be verified: DA

The South African Police Services annual report for the 2014/15 financial year has revealed that almost half the reporting of SAPS members on their performance in responding to dispatch call-outs could not be properly verified.

 In order to curb this problem The Democratic Alliance has proposed that South Africa requires real-time crime statistics to be publically available at every SAPS station.

DA spokesperson Samkelo Mgobozi explained that if SAPS did not have the accurate statistics they could not have an effective policing strategy to combat crime and ordinary South Africans, particularly the poor who themselves cannot afford private security in turn will bear the brunt.

Mgobozi blamed the lack of action and credible reporting as the responsibility of National Police Commisioner Riah Phiyega whose actions have seen a decline of the SAPS whose duty it is to combat crime.

“Crime affects each every one of us.” Mgobozi concluded.
