What is the plan of his department regarding the regularity with which crime statistics will be released?

Reply:

The issue on the regularity of crime statistics release has been discussed at various meetings, in the Portfolio Committee on Police, in the previous financial years. However, Section 218 (f) of the Interim Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, 1993 (Act No. 200 of 1993) provides that, "subject to the directions of the Minister of Safety and Security, the National Commissioner will be responsible for the keeping and provision of crime intelligence data, criminal records and statistics".

The above section has been retained, in terms of item 24 of Schedule 6 to the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, 1996 (Act No. 108 of 1996).

Hence, it is only the Minister who can pronounce on the matter.

Whether he intends to introduce amending legislation in the National Assembly to devolve police powers to provincial governments; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

The Minister does not intend to introduce amendments to any legislation in the National Assembly to devolve police powers to provincial governments. The devolving of police powers to provincial governments will be in contravention of Section 205(1) of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, 1996 ("the Constitution") which states that the "national police service must be structured to function in the national, provincial and, where appropriate, local spheres of government".

Section 205(2) of the Constitution states that "National legislation must establish the powers and functions of the police service and must enable to discharge its responsibilities effectively, taking into account the requirement of the provinces". This has been effected by the promulgation of the South African Police Service Act, 1995.

Section 205(3) of the Constitution makes provision for the duties of the police as follows: "to prevent, combat and investigate crime, to maintain public order, to protect and secure the inhabitants of the Republic and their property, and to uphold and enforce the law".

Section 206(1) of the Constitution requires that the Minister must take into account "the policing needs and priorities of the province as determined by the provincial executive".

Section 206(3) state as follows:

"Each province is entitled-

( a) to monitor police conduct;

(b) to oversee the effectiveness and efficiency of the police service, including receiving reports on the police service;

(c) to promote good relations between the police and community;

(d) to assess the effectiveness of visible policing; and

(e) to liaise with the Cabinet member responsible for policing with respect to crime and policing in the Province."

Section 207(1) of the Constitution provides that the President appoints a National Commissioner of Police to control and manage the police service under the direction of the Minister of Police.

In terms of section 207(3) of the Constitution, the National Commissioner is then responsible for appointing a Provincial Commissioner of Police in each Province to manage and oversee policing in the Province. The Provincial Commissioner is expected to report to the Provincial Legislature and the MEC responsible for Policing.

Section 207(4) of the Constitution makes it clearer that Provincial Commissioners are responsible for policing in their provinces as prescribed by national legislation and subject to the power of the national commissioner to exercise control over and manage the police service.
The Constitution introduced the concept of cooperative government, structured in the national, provincial and local spheres, which is distinctive, interdependent and interrelated. This implies that all spheres of government must conduct their business within the spirit and principles of cooperative governance and intergovernmental relations.

While the Constitution makes it clear that policing is a national competency, Provinces have a huge role to play in the maintenance of law and order, reduction in crime as well as policing in general. As provided in section 207(5) of the Constitution, the Provincial Commissioner is required to account to the provincial legislature on an annual basis on the state of policing in the province.

Mafanya, Mr WTI to ask the Minister of Police:

What number of police stations have permanent counsellors and (b) what are the (i) names and (ii) locations oflhe specified police stations?

Reply:

SAPS does not allocate specific counsellors to police stations, a pool of Counsellors that consists of Psychologists, Social Workers and Chaplains get allocated to Provincial or Cluster Office with the intention of offering services to the different stations under that Cluster. The allocation to Clusters or Provincial offices is guided by the following:

  • Number of stations under that cluster
  • Counsellors employed in the province
  • Nature of crime within an area that exposes members to traumatic events and the frequency at which members seek services of a counsellor

One Counsellor can be allocated to service more than two Clusters, especially in rural areas where there is a limited number of counsellors employed by SAPS. Head Office divisions get serviced by a pool of Counsellors who are based at Head Office but get allocated to divisions based on the need.

SAPS currently employ 114 Psychological services professionals, 202 Social Workers and 217 Chaplains country wide.

In areas where there are no SAPS permanent counsellors available, members’ needs are attended to through a Psycho- Social network of proViders contracted to SAPS medical aid POLMED.

What is the current police to population ratio of each police station in each province in respect of murder?

Reply:

The South African Police Service (SAPS) determines the population ratio, using the mid-year population estimates, released and produced by Statistics South Africa that only covers national and provincial estimates. Thus far, the population ratio, per police station in each province, in respect of murder, is not available, since the areas in the country are not aligned to station boundaries. Therefore, the crime ratios cannot be determined.

(1)(a)(i)(ii)(aa)(bb)&(b)

The process associated with the procurement of leased accommoddtion, is initiated by the South African Police Service (SAPS) but is managed by the National Department of Public Works (NDPW). The SAPS is required to submit all the relevant documents, pertaining to the procurement of leased accommodation, to the NDPW.

The NDPW, therefore, manages the procurement process and concludes the lease agreements. It needs to be mentioned that only the NDPW can enter into a lease agreement, on behalf of user departments, in line with the mandated functions of the aforementioned departments.

The table below reflects the total number of leases, concluded by the NDPW, on behalf of the SAPS.

Given the fact that the NDPW enters into lease contracts on behalf of the SAPS, the rental amounts and periods are agreed upon, by the NDPW and the lessor. The SAPS only confirms the funding of the lease, for the duration of the lease contract.

(2)(c)(d)

The NDPW undertakes the procurement process for acquiring new leases, on behalf of the SAPS. The SAPS is not directly involved in the procurement process and, therefore, does not have access to the requested information.

(2)(e)

The NDPW manages the acquisition process and should, therefore, be requested to provide the details of the officials who have approved leases, relevant to the SAPS.

On which legal provisions does the SA Police Service rely to arrest persons for consuming alcohol in public; (2) (a) why do police officers avoid arresting persons who drink in public and (b) what measures does he intend taking to stop such a bad practice that is killing our society, especially the youth?

Reply:

1. Schedule 5 of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, 1996, (Act No.108 of 1996) addresses the functional areas of the exclusive provincial legislative competence.

Part 'A' of Schedule 5, clearly states that the issuing of liquor licences falls within the ambit of provincial legislative competence, to rpgulatp the micro- manufacturing and retail sale of liquor through provincial liquor legislation.

The legal implications of Schedule 5 is that, where in the past the liquor industry was governed by only the Liquor Act, 1989 (Act No. 27 of 1989), the liquor industry is now governed by the nine provincial liquor acts and one National Liquor Act, 2003 (Act No. 59 of 2003).

Provincial legislative framework

The provincial liquor legislations are administered by the respective Provincial Liquor Boards/Authorities/Regulators, in the nine provinces. The provincial liquor legislation is only applicable in the respective provinces. The following legislations listed below, include offences for drinking in public and being under the influence in public and are utilised by the South African Police Service (SAPS) to charge offenders:

Eastern Cape Liquor Act, 2003 (Act No 10 of 2003);

    • Section 59(d)(i), being drunk or disorderly in or on any road, street, lane, thoroughfare, square, park or market.
    • Section 59(e), consuming liquor in any road, street, lane or thoroughfare, or on vacant land adjacent thereto, in an urban area or other area subdivided into erven or plots.

Free State Gambling and Liquor Act, 2010 (Act No 6 of 2010):

    • Section 128(3)(a)(ii), a person who is drunk in or on a place to which the public has access.
    • Section 128(3)(d), a person who consumes liquor in any street, lane, thoroughfare or vacant land adjacent thereto in urban/rural area subdivided into erven or plots, read with Section 128(5).

Gauteng Liquor Act, 2003 (Act No 2 of 2003);

    • Section 127(c), being intoxicated in, on or near any public place.
    • Section 127(d), drink liquor in, on or near any public place.

Limpopo Province, Liquor Act, 1989 (Act No 27 of 1989);

    • Section 154(1)(c)(i), any person who is drunk in, on or near any road, street, lane, thoroughfare, square, park, or market.
    • Section 154(1)(d), subject to Subsection 2, consumes any liquor in any road, street, lane or thoroughfare, or on vacant land adjacent thereto, in an urban area or other area subdivided into erven or plots, with streets bound by such erven or plots.

Mpumalanga Liquor Licensing Act, 2006 (Act No 5 of 2006);

    • Section 59(1)(c), being drunk in, on, near a road, lane, thoroughfare, square, park, shop, warehouse, public garage, entertainment place, eating-house, racecourse or place where the public has access.
    • Section 59(1)(d), consuming liquor in a road, lane thoroughfare, vacant land adjacent thereto, urban area, erven or plots, with streets bounded by such erven or plots.

Northern Cape Liquor Act, 2008 (Act No 2 of 2008);

    • Section 46(1)(h), consuming liquor or being drunk in, on or at a public place, including any road, street, lane, park, market, shop or warehouse, to which the public has access to.

North West Province, Liquor Act, 1989 (Act No 27 of 1989);

    • Section 154(1)(c)(i), any person who is drunk ,in, on or near any road, street, lane, thoroughfare, square, park, or market.
    • Section 154(1)(d), subject to Subsection 2, consumes any liquor in any road, street, lane or thoroughfare, or on vacant land adjacent thereto, in an urban area or other area, subdivided into erven or plots, with streets bound by such erven or plots.

KwaZulu-Natal Liquor Licensing Act, 2010 (Act No 6 of 2010);

    • Section 93(1)(d), intoxicated, violent or disorderly in a public place.
    • The Kwazulu-Natal Provincial Liquor Authority omitted an offence for drinking in public in the said Liquor Act. However, the eThekwini Municipality bylaws are being used to charge persons for consuming liquor in public.

Western Cape Liquor Act, 2008, (Act No 4 of 2008);

    • Section 76(a)(ii), a person who is drunk in any place to which the public has access.
    • Section 2(3)(8), consuming any liquor in a public place, (municipal bylaw for the City of Cape Town). Other municipalities in the Western Cape also have bylaws for the contravention of this offence.

(2)(a)

The SAPS conducts day-to-day operations and in 2017/2018 to 25 February 2019, a total of 64 809 persons were charged for drinking in public.

Guidelines, to deal with petty offences (category B-Crimes) and to prevent civil claims against the SAPS, were developed and distributed to all provincial commissioners for implementation.

These guidelines also deal with the release of persons, who are arrested for offences related to drinking or being drunk in public. Such persons may be issued with a written notice (J534) as a method of securing his or her attendance in a Magistrate Court, in accordance with Section 56 of the Criminal Procedure Act, 1977 (Act No. 51 of 1977).

(2)(b) Education and awareness campaigns are regularly held with stakeholders to engage with communities and schools, to address underage drinking and the prevention of liquor abuse. A total of 21 626 liquor awareness campaigns were conducted, in 2017/2018, to date.
