  • ICD INTERVENTIONa) Izele Police StationThe office was approached by members of the community who had serious concerns regarding the manner in which the management of the station was handled. There was a total lack of co-operation between SAPS and the community and hence the community had lost confidence in the Station Commissioner and his staff members.We initially had a meeting with the whole community and listened to their concerns. There was one outstanding matter in which two women were injured when the police van they were transported in was involved in an accident; it was not dealt with to the complainant’s satisfaction despite the fact that they were injured and one of them had one ear completely damaged. After our intervention the SAPS members concerned were charged.

  • In view of the serious allegations raised by the community in that meeting we decided that the matter be brought to the attention of the Area Commissioner concerned. Another meeting was scheduled wherein Station Commissioner and his team were present, the Area Commissioner’s representatives, the community and the ICD. After lengthy deliberations during the meeting the Area Commissioner requested that the matter be dealt with by them as Management. The result was the transfer of the Station Commissioner to another police station as well as some members. We suggested the election of a CPF Committee for that police station in order for the community to raise any concerns through the CPF to the Station Commissioner to improve relations.

  • b) Kentani (Theko Springs)In Theko Springs there were two sides in one community who were fighting each other and SAPS in Kentani Police Station were accused of taking sides. One group supported the Chief and the other supported the Headman. A number of murder cases were opened by one side and no progress was forthcoming from SAPS. The ICD was requested to intervene. The situation had deteriorated to a level where school kids from one side of the village could not attend school on the other side. We held meetings with both sides in the presence of Kentani Police as we wanted them to hear for themselves what the problems were relating to their services in that village.After both meetings we wrote a letter to the MEC for Safety and Security informing him of the problem in Theko Springs. We went back to Theko Springs with two officers from the Secretariat. After debates with both sides it transpired that the root cause of their conflict was land related. It was also clear that SAPS was clearly taking sides in their conduct and hence we involved the Area Commissioner, Queenstown.The existing Station Commissioner was transferred and an acting one was appointed whilst SAPS Management addressed the problem. Eventually the conflict was resolved which led us having a meeting with both sides in one hall which was impossible before our intervention.

  • PROJECTS UNDERTAKENa) Having identified that there were less complaints received by our office from the former Border/Ciskei area in the Province, we took a decision to target the rural community. We held a meeting with the Amandlambe Chiefs first in order to inform them of the mandate of the ICD before going to their communities.After that meeting a roster was drawn up and we held community meetings in the Chief’s Kraal in the various villages. They requested that our brochures be translated into Xhosa in order for the communities to be able to read and understand our mandate.B) The ICD has a mandate to monitor implementation by SAPS of the Domestic Violence Act. If there is a member who has failed to comply with the Act, SAPS must apply to the ICD for exemption of that member from prosecution for non-compliance. We noted that despite receiving complaints of non-compliance by SAPS from the complainants, no applications for exemption were forthcoming. We decided to embark on a training of SAPS members in all 8 policing areas after consultation and approval by the Provincial Commissioner.

Training sessions on DVA were held in each Area for the Area Commissioner and Management, together with all Station Commissioners and their Heads of Detectives Services on different dates and venues. The same training was conducted for the Provincial Commissioner and his management and on that training session all Area Commissioners were also present.

PROVINCIAL CHALLENGES

  • Domestic Violence:

    No applications for exemption are received by the ICD from SAOS despite the training provide. No monthly returns for non compliance are submitted by some Area Commissioners.

    2. Administrative Issues:

    Late notification of deaths in police custody or as result of police action. Failure to notify the ICD by some police stations of deaths in police custody. Inability to fax letters to some police stations, due to non-availability of such facility, especially in the former Transkei area.
