Groenewald, Dr PJ to ask the Minister of Police:

(1) Whether he still intend to determine an amnesty period where firearms can be handed in without the owners being prosecuted; if not, why not, if so, on what date does he envisage for this; (2) whether owners of firearms will again have the opportunity to apply for a licence for firearms of which the licence had expired; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

(1) In terms of section 139 of the Firearms Control Act, 2000 (Act No. 60 of 2000), an amnesty may be declared by the Minister of police if the amnesty may result in the reduction of thr number of illegally possessed firearms and it is in the public interest to do so. A firearm amnesty is therefore the prerogative of the Minister of Police.

(2) Section 24, read with section 28, of the Firearms Control Act, does not provide for an expired licence to be renewed.

(1) Whether a certain person (name furnished) and any other officials of the SA Police Service were issued with notices of suspension earlier this week regarding meddling in a number of investigations of the Independent Police Investigative Directorate into corrupt procurement deals; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details in each case; (2) given that a High Court ruling was issued against the specified officials for failing to comply with their statutory duties, what are the detailed reasons that he has taken more than 10 months to take action given that the ruling was handed down on 13 January 2021?

Reply:

 

  1. It’s a Presidential prerogative to suspend the National Commissioner, up to this far we have not been advised by the Presidency along those lines,
  2. Commissioner is responsible for that function; again Ministry has not yet been advised as such.
  3. Action would have been taken by the Presidency regarding National Commissioner and by National Commissioner concerning the two Lt. Generals

(1) In light of the testimony from the SA Police Service (SAPS) Commissioner in the SA Human Rights Commission hearings, who admitted that police were understaffed and lacked the intelligence to deal with the modus operandi used’ to organise protests, what plans has his department put in place to make SAPS more protest ready in future, given the lessons learnt from the July 2021 riots that took place in KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng and the Republic's history of protests; (2) what are the full, relevant details and update on the recent robbery at the Malamulele Police Station where firearms and ammunition were taken and later used during robberies in the vicinity; (3) whether he will furnish Ms Z Majozi with the relevant information on the statistics relating to robberies that target police firearms and ammunition in the Republic in the past three years; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details?

1. Between July 2021 and March 2022, the target is to train members of the South African Police Service (SAPS), at police stations, as first responders and equip them with pyrotechnics.

The continual training of SAPS members at police stations, as first responders and equipping them with Crowd Management equipment, will reduce the risk of such incidents. It will enhance the response time as the police station members will be closer to the incidents, until such time that the Public Order Policing (POP) capacity is deployed. The target for training is 10 000 members, based on the proximity to hotspot areas. To date, 8 000 members have been trained and training is continuing.

2. On 22 November 2021, at approximately 22:00, a group of armed suspects entered the Community Service Centre (CSC) of Malamulele Police Station and overpowered four SAPS members and disarmed them. A female Data Typist was locked in a patrol vehicle, which was parked outside the police station.

The suspects took four R5 assault rifles, four shotguns and four pistols from the SAPS members and from the safe, in the CSC. The suspects then left the Police Station and locked the main gate with a padlock, on their way out.

Thereafter, the suspects robbed the Sasol Garage, the Wisani Total Garage and a nearby shop. During the attack, the suspects blasted a safe at the Total Garage and fired several shots. One community member was wounded in the process and two vehicles were hijacked, which were recovered a few kilometers from the scene.

Khumalo, Dr NV to ask the Minister of Police

Whether, with reference to the increase in the crime rate in the Republic, there are currently any collaborative interventions undertaken by the SA Police Service and the Department of Basic Education to deal with the (a) violence in schools amongst learners and (b) kidnapping of children in schools; if not, why not; if so, (i) what has been the method of measuring the impact of the interventions and (ii) to what extent has he found this to a reflection of an ineffective national intelligence function?

Reply:

(a) The South African Police Service (SAPS) and the Department of Basic Education (DBE) have completed the process of reviewing the School Safety Protocol, which guides the implementation of School Safety Programmes, aimed at promoting safer schools, nationally. There are various crime

awareness campaigns, which are implemented and conducted, by the SAPS, at schools to address, amongst others, incidences of bullying and gangsterism amongst learners, in and around school premises. Currently, there is a National School Safety Violence and Bullying Prevention Initiative that is being implemented, in response to the emerging incidents of bullying and violence by learners on and off school premises.

The SAPS also has a flagship project called the Junior Commissioner Project, whicF‹ is being implemented, from Grades 8 to 12. Junior Commissioners are appointed in schools, to lead crime prevention campaigns, under the mentorship of the SAPS. Junior Commissioners are also participating in School Safety Committees in their areas.

Awareness campaigns, which focus on the kidnapping of learners to and from schools, are conducted, on an ongoing basis. Multidisciplinary Investigation Teams have been established in the hotspot provinces, namely Gauteng,
KwaZulu-Natal, the Western Cape, North West and Limpopo. These teams are part of the Provincial Organised Crime Investigation units. Cases are prioritised, centralised and investigated, in terms of the 72-Hour Activation Plan. The Provincial Organised Crime Investigation teams are coordinated by the National Organised Crime Investigation Unit and activated by the Joint Operational Centres (JOC) and consist of:

Hostage negotiators.

Crime intelligence.

Detective Service (local police station).

Organised Crime units (National and Provincial levels).

Forensic Services, including Crime Scene Management.

Tactical Response Teams.

For the investigation of kidnapping cases, the multidisciplinary teams, make use of the following:

u Arrest of identified persons.

Centralisation of case dockets, for investigation purposes.

Centralisation of case dockets, for trial in court and prosecutor-directed investigations with the National Prosecution Authority (NPA).

Collection and analysis of data and information received, on the cases that are investigated by the multidisciplinary teams. This intervention has resulted in a decrease in the kidnapping of school children.

(i) The impact of the intervention programmes is measured through ongoing compliance inspections. Capacity building sessions are done where a gap is identified with regard to the implementation of School Safety Programmes.

(ij)

The involvement of the National Crime Intelligence does yield positive results, which assists investigation teams in effecting arrests and aeizures, as well as the confiscation of valuable exhibits during track and trace operations.

Profile picture: Majozi, Ms Z

Majozi, Ms Z to ask the Minister of Police

Whether, in light of the recent crime intelligence report that has revealed that kidnappings in the Republic rose by 60% in 2021, his department has investigated allegations that members of the SA Police Service and private security companies were involved in kidnappin8•, if not, why not; if so, what are the full, relevant details?

Reply:

Private security companies form part of the multidisciplinary operational approach, which was adopted for the tracking and tracing of kidnappers and the rescuing of victims, in collaboration with the South African Police Service (SAPS).

Families of a kidnapped victim will typically approach a private security company of their choice, who in turn, according to the investigative procedures will be the mediator between the Joint Operational Centre (JOC) and the family of the victim. They are referred to as partners or stakeholders and collaboration is not limited to kidnappings but can include all other categories of crimes, which are problematic.

There is currently no reported case or incident where private security companies were involved in the commission of such a crime, identified as an accomplice or an accessory after the fact.

Members of the SAPS and other law enforcement agencies have been arrested in the following cases:

  • Pretoria West, CAS 280/01/2021: Two City of Tshwane Metropolitan Police officials were arrested. The matter has been provisionally withdrawn, pending the tracking and tracing of the complainant.

. 2

Johannesburg Central, CAS 1054/02/2019: Nine suspects were arrested, of which two are members of the SAPS. The case has been set for trial arrangement, on 15 January 2022.

  • Parkview CAS 142/08/2019, Bramley CAS 182/01/2020 and Rosebank CAS 61/02/2020: Five suspects were arrested, of which two are members of the SAPS. The same suspects were arrested in all three abovementioned cases and the case will be heard, in February 2022, for trial.

Whether, with reference to the meeting of the Portfolio Committee on Home Affairs on 9 November 2021 at which the SA Police Service was identified as one of the departments that has not yet provided the necessary input for the section 97 Presidential Proclamation to be signed to transfer the relevant border law enforcement functions to the Minister of Home Affairs, he has been informed that this lack of input is holding up the implementation of the Border Management Authority; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, (a) what is the reason for the delayed response and b) by what date will he provide the necessary inputs?

Reply:

(a) The South African Police Service (SAPS) provided inputs, with regard to the envisaged Section 97 Presidential Proclamation, to the Border Management Authority (BMA). The SAPS obtained a legal opinion, from counsel, which concludes that the envisaged Section g7 Presidential Proclamation will be ultra vires (beyond the powers).

Therefore, the SAPS is of the view that the sections of the legislation, mentioned in the envisaged Presidential Proclamation, do not deal with functions of the Minister of Police and may, therefore, not be transferred, in terms of Section 97, The only exception, is Section 92 of the Firearms Control Act, 2000 (Act No. 60 of 2000), which is the only section dealing with a clear power or function, assigned to the i4inister of Police. In terms of Section 92, the Minister of Police may prohibit or restrict the acquisition, disposal, possession or use of ammunition of a specified Clgss of ammunition.

(6) The SAPS and the Commissioner of the BMA are presently in a process of engagement, to find ways and means to empower border guards, to perform border law enforcement functions.

Reply:

  1. The National Commissioner of the South African Police Service {SAPS) is appointed by the President of the Republic of South Africa (RSA), in terms of Section 207(1) of the Constitution of the RSA, 1906. It is, therefore, the prerogative of the President, to determine the process in appointing a National Commissioner, for the SAPS.
  2. Adequate human capital is, however, key to the provisioning of a comprehensive policing service, which, despite available technology, is required in order in to execute this labour-intensive function. The reduction of the SAPS staff compliment over the medium-term, by implication, negatively Influences the SAPS’ ability to maintain an adequate work-force, in the pursuance of its objectives. Currently, the SAPS Management is forced to take strategic decisions, regarding the strategic resourcing and the operational focus of the SAPS, on the basis of the budget allocation, rather than on the reality on the ground and the associated demand for policing.

The R27,7 billion budget reduction, over the 2021 Medium-Term Expenditure Framework (MTEF), in relation to the 2020 budget estimates, comprises a reduction of R26, 2 billion, in respect of the compensation of employees and a

R1,5 billion reduction, in respect of goods and services. Of the R26,2 billion reduction on the compensation of employees, a reduction of approximately R18,8 billion is as a result of salary increases, which have not been provided for, over the period. As a result of these reductions, apart from the salary adjustments, the SAPS s ability to sustain the new intake of new recruits, as well as the capacitation of specialised units, will be severely affected.

In order to continue to allow for rte addressing of critical vacancies only and the augmenting of capacity at police stations, reprioritisation will remain a prominent feature over the medium-term. This will be achieved, by reducing the actual number of personnel allocated to non-operational, national and provincial competencies, in order to allow for the addressing of critical vacancies and the capacity at police stations and other key frontline capabilities, so as to ensure the sustainability of service delivery to communities. The reducing of non- operational national and provincial competencies, may however, compromise the various governance-related process that these capabilities are responsible for and which the operational environment relies on.

The Visible Policing Programme comprises of three sections, the first of which is Crime Prevention, which incorporates the majority of the basic functions that are performed at police station level; certain key abilities are, such as the Central Firearms Register (CFR) and the majority of the Crime prevention- orientated partnership initiatives, such as the Community Police boards and forums. The Specialised interventions Section represents critical specialised Capabilities, including the Public Order Policing (POP) Units, the Tactical Response Teams (TRT's) and the Special Task FORGO (STF). The final section, Border Security, includes the policing and border control functions that are performed, in respect of ports of entry.

The R14, 4 billion budget reduction in the Visible Policing Programme, over the 2021 MTEF, in relation to the 2020 budget estimates, amounts to R13.6 billion reduction in the Compensation of employees and a R0,8 billion reduction in goods and services. Approximately R9,8 billion of the R13, 6 billion reduction in the compensation of employees, is as a result of salary increases, which are not being provided for, over the period. In view of the decline in the budget allocation to the compensation of employees over the medium-term, alternatives such as technological enhancements and force-multipliers will be addressed, e.g. the recruitment of reservists has been identified as a mechanism that could compliment the SAPS’ personnel numbers, over a medium-term to longer period.

The situation means that SAPS must attempt to optimally use its existing resources but it also means that during the time, where intense police operations are required, for example during the festive season, the SAPS must resort to short-term interventions, e,g. not allowing members to take leave, recalling members from rest days and making use of overtime.

The SAPS is committed to ensure that it makes optimal use of its limited resources, to ensure that policing is not compromised, during festive season,

NW2749E

Reply:

Yes. The SAPS Compensation budget has been significantly reduced over the Medium Term Expenditure Framework (MTEF), which resulted in the SAPS Fixed Establishment (headcount) being hugely reduced over this period. To ensure that the compensation budget is not exceeded, very minimal enrolment of new Police recruits will take place over the MTEF.

  1. The intake is planned for 23 January 2022; and
  2. It is envisaged to enroll 3000 new Police recruits.

Reply:

The Provincial Commissioner of the South African Police Service, in KwaZulu-Natal, was making use of interim accommodation, because the official reserved residential accommodation was not available at the time when he arrived in the Province. The reasons are as follows:

The official residence needed minor repairs, as well as the installation/upgrade of security features. These minor repairs were not regarded as an emergency and the normal procurement process had to be followed. Some of the suppliers had challenges in obtaining the material. which was required to execute the task.
The major challenge, which prevented the Provincial Commissioner from occupying the official residence, was the alleged dispute over ownership of the property and the change of ownership of the electricity account.

lt was found that the official residence was allegedly fraudulently sold to a third party and the victim of this fraud had tried to change the ownership of the property into his name. He was not successful, however, he had successfully changed the electricity account details into his name, at the municipal offices.

The alleged fraudster owed the municipality a substantial amount of money since the change-over of this account. The municipality refused to reverse this account and insisted on all outstanding payments being settled before a new account could be opened. A fraud case was opened, at the Durban North Police Station and the case number, is CAS 165/05/2021

(a). The Provincial Commissioner made use of interim accommodation, from 1 April 2021 to 31 August 2021.

(b). The total cost for the interim accommodation, amounted to R175 000,00.

(c) The Provincial Commissioner has moved and is now occupying the official residence.

Reply:

Introduction

The term “rape kits" is used in the public domain, to refer to the collection kits, which are used to collect evidence from victims of sexual assault and rape. However, the South African Police Service (SAPS), makes use of 16 different types of crime kits to collect various samples at crime scenes, These include the two types of evidence collection kits, namely; the Adult Sexual Assault Collection Kit (D1) and the Paediatric Sexual Assault Collection Kit {D7), which are used to collect evidence from victims of sexual assault and rape. The Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) Reference Buccal Sample Kits (DB), are used to take buccal simples from persons, who are arrested and charged, for schedule eight offences (this includes serial murderers and serial rapists) as required by the DNA Act.

(a)(i)(ii)(iii)(iv) The breakdown of the availability of rape kits, as at 4 November 2021, at each office of the South African Police Service (SAPS), in the Western Cape, Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal and Eastern Cape, is reflected in the tables below:

(2)(a) The total amount spent on the EFRS, since its inception, in 2000/2001 to date, is R103 431 342,00.

(2)(b) The above amount has been spent on annual system support, as well as the maintenance and enhancements performed on the system through the SAPS/ State information Technology Agency (SITA) Service Level Agreement, over a period of 21 years.

(3) Since the system built is based on old technology, it lacks the capability to provide efficient support to smart modem information Technology (IT) processes, such as electronic connectivity with external stakeholders and workflow capability, to reduce the paper-based processing of firearm licence applications. Not all processes, as required by the Firearms Control Act, 2000 (Act No. 60 of 2000) and its Regulations, are supported by the EFRS.

Reply:

A strategic planning session took place between the Department of Health (DoH) and the South African Police Service (SAPS), on 24 November 2018, in Polokwane to deliberate on the root causes of the problem and initiate relevant interventions.

An interdepartmental Safety and Security National Task Team, consisting of the SAPS, the DoH, the Department of Labour (DoL), the Department of Home Affair (OHA) and the Private Security Industry Regulatory Authority(PSIRA) was establi9hed to support the DoH and embarked on visits to the affected provinces to assess the threat, in order to recommend proper interventions.

A National Joint Operational and Intelligence Structure (NATJOINTS) Priority Committee was established to monitor the incidences of attacks and harassment of Emergency Medical Services (EMS) personnel and to recommend interventions, Iri line with the five pillar approach.

A National Crime Combating Forum (NCCF) Instruction, number 1 of 2021: Overarching Crime Combating Strategy, was registered to run, from 1 February 2021 to 31 March 2025.

The operational concept entails the stabilisation of crime in high crime police stations and clusters/districts, through an intelligence led geographical and organised crime approach.

Tactical Operational Centres were established in identified locations and hotspot areas to maintain a 24-hour presence, led by competent operational commanders to implement respective concepts and command the established multidisciplinary teams, implementing stabilization through the following concepts:

Pillar 1: Intelligence gathering, analysis and coordination.

Pillar 2: Proactive and high visibility approach.

Pillar 3: Combat and reaction approach.

Pillar 4: Reactive through detection, including organised crime approach.

Whether, following his statement in February while delivering the third quarter crime statistics that SA Police Service (SAPS) must change its responses to the cash-in- transit heists and other similar kinds of robberies, the SAPS has made any significant strides in implementing different arid more effective solutions to the specified robberies, particularly cash-in-transit heists; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details? NW1395E

Reply:

Yes, a total of 230 members from various specialised units within the South African Police Service (SAPS) were deployed, since last year, in the five most problematic provinces, namely; Gauteng, Mpumalanga, !he Eastern Cape, KwaZulu-Natal and the North West, in order to direct law enforcement structures and empower them with the necessary expertise and resources, to reduce and prevent the increasing scourge of Cash-in-Transit (CIT) crimes.

CIT Centres, which are coordinated by the Provincial Operational Command Centres (POCC), have been established in the abovementioned provinces.

A threat analysis was conducted, in which firearms and explosives ware identified as the enablers of CIT robberies and interventions were subsequently developed and

implemented to neutralise this threat.

Compliance inspections at various mines have been intensified by the Office of the Chief Inspector, from the SAPS’ Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL), in collaboration with members from the Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation (DPCI). Members attached to the Firearms and Explosives Unit, in the DPCI, have also intensified compliance inspections at various firearm shops and security companies, in collaboration with the FSL Ballistics Section and linkages are being established, by the FSL, in respect of the firearms that are being used during CIT robberies.

SAPS members at ports of entry, such as Beitbridge and Lebombo, have been trained in the identification of explosives and sniffer dogs are also used at the border posts to detect explosives.

All CIT companies are compelled to vet all of their personnel, to identify and eliminate collusion from within the companies. Stakeholder meetings with all the CIT companies are held monthly, to evaluate and review the progress that has been achieved with the reduction of CIT crimes.

Bilateral meetings with Zimbabwe, Zambia and Botswana are being arranged, through INTERPOL, to discuss collaboration on mechanisms; to reduce the smuggling of explosives and firearms into South Africa.

The aforementioned will determine the post establishment required, to enable a police station to render a service to clients, within the allocated ratio of 80/20°/», in respect of operational/support functions.

The post establishment which has been determined for a police station, will be utilised as a point of departure for the determination of all categories of physical and financial resources that are required for a specific police station, based on the relevant criteria. The overall resource allocation will be utilised, to inform the resource allocation plan for a police station, depending on the affordability of the resources, in line with the current budget and the Medium-Term Expenditure Framework (MTEF).

(2)(a) The resource plan is unique for every specify police station, based on the profile, category and classification of the station.

(2) (b) The resources that are provided for different types of police stations, are In line with the unique circumstances that are particular to each station, including crimes that are prevalent in the station precinct, e.g. contact crimes, sexual offences, property-related crimes, etc. and other relevant criteria, such as the topography of the station precinct, e.g. in respect of vehicles, rural areas will be allocated light delivery vehicles (4x2 or 4x4 vehicles), rather than sedan vehicles.

What are the reasons that (a) personnel at border posts such as the Lebombo Port of Entry have more than 30 personnel in a shift, who after midnight do nothing but claim night shift allowance and (b) the specified personnel are not deployed to me nearest police station like Komatipoort and Tonga SAPS to assist with patrols during the night?

Reply:

Members of the South African Police Service (SAPS), who are stationed at Ports of Entry are also safeguarding the infrastructure of the ports and Includes, but is not limited to, the vehicles and equipment used by other Government departments, that are performing duties at Ports of Entry. There are travellers that arrive after the dosing hours of the Ports of Entry and spend the night sleeping in the queue, outside the Ports of Entry. The SAPS members also safeguard the travellers, their vehicles and goods.

Many activities, like the smuggling of ill\cit goods and illegal crossings, take place at the borderline closer to the ports, after the Ports of Entry have closed, as these people come back to the load, to get transport and continue their journey. The SAPS Is responsible to prevent such activities, after the Ports of Entry have closed. The policing of the 10km radius from a Port of Entry is important, to curb the illegal activities, at night. If the SAPS members are removed and policing is not done in the 10km radius from the Port of Entry, Illegal activities will rise and pose a security threat to the Republic of South Africa (RSA).
