What programme or strategy does the SA Police Service have in place to deal with the nationwide epidemic of sexual violence committed against female students at institutions of higher learning?

Reply:

The South African Police Service (SAPS), is committed to provide a professional and empathetic service which will focus on the needs of victims of all sexual-related crimes, which are committed against women and children. The SAPS has a dual mandate in terms of addressing sexual-related crimes, which is as follows:

  • Proactive: Conduct awareness programmes to educate and sensitise communities, as a preventative measure, to curb sexual-related crimes, as well as to collaborate with external stakeholders, such as the Department of Social Development, the Department of Higher Education and various non-profit organisations.
  • Reactive: Investigate reported sexual related crimes, as guided by the Criminal Law (Sexual Offences and Related Matters) Amendment Act, 2007 (Act No 32 of 2007) and the Sexual Offences Act, 1957 (Act No 23 of 1957).

The proactive approach to the addressing of sexual-related offences, committed at institutions of higher learning, is one that requires specific interventions and the forging of partnerships, based on what would be the most appropriate manner of addressing causes and factors that contribute to the crimes committed. Examples of these interventions range from those that specifically target institutions, where these crimes have been reported, to general awareness-raising campaigns, aimed at all members of the public, regarding sexual offences.

In addition, as part of the general approach to addressing sexual-related offences, victims of sexual offences are encouraged to report these crimes, in order to enable thorough investigation, directed at ensuring the successful conviction of the perpetrator.

Examples of the proactive crime prevention approach, per Province, are indicated below:

PROVINCE

APPLICABLE INTERVENTIONS

Eastern Cape

  • Continuous awareness campaigns are conducted at universities.
  • Several engagements have been held between the SAPS and university management.
  • The Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences Unit (FCS), conducted integrated campaigns with University Management and Student Representative Councils (SRCs).
  • The Rhodes University implements its own sexual violence policy.
  • Talk shows have been conducted by the SAPS at ocal radio stations.
  • Engagements with social partners, who are able to address the social factors that lead to sexual violence, e.g. the Department of Social Development.

Free State

  • Implementation of the Youth Crime Prevention Framework, which is premised on establishing partnerships with appropriate organisations, including higher learning institutions, in order to address the risk factors of crime.
  • The SAPS’s Free State Youth Ambassadors, conduct dialogues with students at higher learning institutions. The youth ambassadors are peers/young leaders, who are best placed to address issues that concern young people and to discourage criminal behaviour and encourage victims to report crimes.

KwaZulu-Natal

  • Awareness campaigns are held at learning institutions to sensitise learners on the prevention of abuse and on the reporting of abuse.
  • The SAPS, various non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and other government departments, are instrumental in conducting such awareness campaigns.
  • The discourse is not limited to abuse only, topics such as drug and alcohol abuse, which may be contributing factors, are also dealt with.

Limpopo

  • The conducting of monthly meetings with relevant stakeholders, such as the municipality, landlords of students living off-campus, school representatives and NGOs, in order to address factors that precipitate crime or contribute to the risks of sexual violence. On the basis of the analysis of the risk factors, advice is provided to landlords on security management.
  • Community group patrols are conducted in the communities surrounding higher learning institutions. Patrols are also conducted in partnership with security guards, in and outside institutions.
  • Crime awareness campaigns and safer school programmes are conducted.
  • As part of sector policing, intelligence-led operations are conducted within communities that may impact on sexual offences.

Western Cape

  • Awareness programmes and strategies are in place which are aimed at combating gender-based violence, focusing on the community as a whole.

Gauteng

  • Every institution of higher learning is responsible for their own security. Therefore, the SAPS does not patrol the inside of these institutional premises. Not all students reside on the institution’s premises, but rent rooms/houses in the nearby vicinity. This means that they will either walk or commute to and from the institution. It leaves these students more vulnerable than those residing on the various premises.
  • Station areas are divided into smaller sections, called sectors. According to National Instruction 3 of 2013, every police station must have a crime forum, in every sector. The attendees must represent those who reside and/or work within the sector. Students and institutions of higher learning do fall within a sector and are represented at the sector crime forum.
  • Besides the sector crime forums, police stations also have a forum for security companies, where the different crimes affecting the station area, are discussed. The security managers, including those responsible for security at the higher learning institutions, form part of the security forum. Crime hotspots and the latest modus operandi, are discussed and crime prevention actions/strategies are planned. These meetings are held on a weekly or monthly basis. Crimes are also addressed at the higher learning institutions, via the student residence committees.
  • The owners of commune premises owners are included in the security meetings and forums, in order to communicate with their residents and also to sharpen up the security on the premises were the students live.
  • Pamphlets, reflecting the latest threats and safety tips, are regularly distributed to students on the premises and/or at entrance/exist gates.
  • Social media, such as WhatsApp groups, specific to crime in and around the relevant area, is very popular and also very effective. Communication through the Community Policing Forums and Youth Desk/Youth Committees are utilised to send safety measures and look-out messages. At most police stations in the province, a Social Crime Prevention Co-ordinator has been appointed to coordinate such activities.
  • The Province recently developed a plan to address crimes against women and children. The plan focuses on the following proactive objectives: address crime generators, social crime prevention initiatives and enhanced community awareness. The reactive objective addresses effective investigation and prosecution.

North West

  • Continuous awareness campaigns are conducted at the North West (NW) University, Potchefstroom, as well as the other NW University campus, in Mahikeng.
  • The Province has also implemented the Youth Crime Prevention Framework, which is premised on partnerships with appropriate organisations, in order to address the risk factors of crime.
  • Community and security patrols are conducted in the communities surrounding the institutions. Patrols are conducted in partnership with the Sector Commander.
  • Awareness programmes and strategies, which are aimed at combating gender-based violence and focusing on the community as a whole, are in place.
  • Locally based radio stations, as well as the campus radio station, are utilised to make students aware of their rights and safety, specifically in respect of sexual offences.

Northern Cape

  • To date, no incident has been reported from any higher institutions in the Province. However, the Provincial Crime Prevention Strategy, which was launched in 2013, addresses crimes against women and children. All governmental programmes are aligned to the Northern Cape Provincial Crime Prevention (NCPCP) Strategy, which is a guiding tool to all departments and NGOs, on how issues of gender-based violence, should be addressed.

Mpumalanga

  • The following programmes or strategies are in place in the Province:
  • SABC radio slot during which the SAPS provides information on gender-based violence and sexual offences and reaches out to community, including female students at institutions of higher learning.

(2) There is no Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between any of the three Metro Police Departments (MPDs) and the South African Police Service (SAPS) in Gauteng.

There are three fully established MPDs in Gauteng, namely:

  • Johannesburg MPD;
  • Ekurhuleni MPD; and
  • Tshwane MPD.

The SAPS has, however, established a National Forum for MPDs, which includes all of the MPDs in the Gauteng Province. The Forum, chaired by the Divisional Commissioner: Visible Policing on behalf of the Acting National Commissioner, convenes on a quarterly basis. The Forum is attended by the Provincial Commissioners in whose provinces MPDs have been established, namely Eastern Cape, Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal and the Western Cape.

The purpose of the Forum is to coordinate joint operations between the SAPS and the various MPDs, informed by the identified crime threats and tendencies in the relevant jurisdictions. Senior members of the various MPDs also attend Provincial Joint Intelligence and Operational Structure (Prov JOINTS), during which integrated operations are planned.

The Forum also coordinates the quality assurance of entry-level qualifications for MPD members, while additional, specific training is provided by the SAPS, including: drill and physical training, management and leadership training, crowd management training and general policing training (predominantly using a “train-the-trainer” approach).

The SAPS in Gauteng is also supported by the Gauteng Traffic Police who also mobilise the smaller Municipal Police Departments to provide a joint integrated approach to policing.

The Gauteng Law Enforcement Agencies Forum (GLEAF) was established in 2015. This forum coordinates and drives joint interventions between the SAPS and other law enforcement agencies. The forum accounts for all joint operations within Gauteng and guides the need for specific interventions at all levels. The forum is chaired and headed by the Deputy Provincial Commissioner Policing: Gauteng and consists of all SAPS Operational Heads and Police Chiefs.

The forum is an effective operational command structure that has yielded good results. The following priority committees were established:

  • Bad Buildings;
  • By-Law Management;
  • Counterfeit Goods;
  • Taxi Violence;
  • Road Safety; and
  • Illegal Mining.

The above-mentioned committees plan and execute joint, integrated operations, addressing specific problems and report monthly to the GLEAF on actions executed, successes and future interventions. Several discussions and planning sessions were held during 2016/17 and a MOU will be facilitated during May 2017, after considering the inputs received.

The SAPS and MPDs have, in partnership with the Member of the Executive Committee (MEC) for Community Safety, compiled the following strategies that drive the joint integrated approach to policing in Gauteng:

  • The Gauteng Safety Strategy; and
  • The Gauteng Integrated Policing Strategy.

How many members of the VIP Protection Unit were assigned to the protection detail of (a) the President, (b) the Deputy President, (c) Cabinet Ministers and (d) all other VIPs in each of the (i) 2007-08 (ii) 2008-09, (iii) 2009-10 (iv) 2010-11 (v) 2011-12 and (vi) 2012-13 financial years?

Reply:

Please note that the President and Deputy President are protected by the Presidential Protection Service, and not the VIP Protection Service.

The members allocated to protect the President and Deputy President is called a protection package. The protection package consists of members with different protection tasks. The total numbers of members are allocated in terms of the risk category, which is determined by the risk profile of the VIP and varies in terms of the risks and threats involved.

The total number of members allocated to these VIPs will not be disclosed, as the disclosure of this information in itself can pose a serious risk to the effective protection of the President and Deputy President.

With regard to the alleged threats received by a certain person (name furnished), on the basis of which it was decided to assign her a VIP security detail, (a) at what police station was/were the threat(s) reported; (b) what is the CAS number for the docket that was opened and (c) who is the investigating officer assigned to investigate the complaint in each case?

Reply:

(a)-(c) The security detail that has been allocated to (name furnished) was based on a thorough risk assessment, conducted by both the State Security Agency (SSA) and the South African Police Service’s (SAPS) Crime Intelligence capability.

It is not a requirement that a threat assessment be based on a reported crime. As previously stated, the SAPS cannot divulge the detail associated with the threat assessment as this may potentially compromise the safety and security of (name furnished) and the relevant SAPS members.
