The Institute for Security Studies says corruption is a problem in the Police Force, but it is not systemic.

The head of the Institute’s crime and justice program Gareth Newham says poor leadership and a lack of monitoring are mostly to blame for police corruption.

Newham was speaking in Sandton at the launch of a campaign by the ISS to encourage professionalism in the Force.

A report released at the launch says the current controversy surrounding lease agreements signed off by Commissioner Bheki Cele set the police back.
