    • Area meetings
    • Provincial Policing Co-coordinating Committee
    • SAPS station meetings

mou s
  • MOU with ACSA (Last phase of finalisation)
  • MOU (Reviewed) with METRO’s (Last phase of update)
  • MOU with CI & DS (Finalised)
  • No real time access to SAPS Statistics
  • No access to Morpho touch
  • Non recognition of our rank structure by SAPS
  • Isolated incidents of lack of cooperation fron SAPS commanders
  • MOU with SAPS (CI and DS) finalized but not signed
  • SALGA Central Bargaining Council resolution on Conditions of Service and Disciplinary Code is not conducive to effective policing
  • Non Policing Trade Unions!

All of the above have been brought to the attention of the National Co-ordinating forum for Municipal Policing: Refer Comm M Mmutle

(Partnership Policing)

  • The abovementioned successes are successes that have been achieved in addition to the successes achieved by the SAPS. They are complementary.
  • Municipal/Metro Police are effective force- multipliers, as they were intended.
  • With greater co-ordination, co-operation and integration of planning with the SAPS, this effectiveness can be even further enhanced to the reduction of crime.
  • SALGA Central Bargaining Council Resolution on Conditions of Service and Disciplinary Code should be reviewed. A distinction should be made between policing staff and other local government employees with regard to at the very least, the Disciplinary Code.
  • Disciplinary code for Municipal/Metro Police should be more aligned and linked to that of the SAPS.
