Lotriet, Prof A to ask the Minister of Police
(1)With reference to his reply to question 1943 on 6 October 2016, what are the reasons that the Tembisa South Police Station only has 24 visible police officers to cover three sectors and the client service office; (2) how many members should ideally be on duty at the client service office at any given time?
1. The 24 members perform only sector patrols and exclude personnel who work at the Community Service Centre (CSC).
2. The Theoretical Human Resource Requirement (THRR), which is based on the workload at the police station, indicates a requirement of 59 posts for the shift-related functions. The police station has a total of 51 members in this environment, against a granted number of 41 funded posts. It is the responsibility of the relief commander to post available members, in accordance with the required shift-related functions.
