Reply:

(1)(a) It needs be mentioned, that the Umhlali Police Station Is not a devolved police station and as ·a result, the South African Police Service Is reliant on the Department of Public Works for all minor and major repairs.

The police station's yard is not regularly maintained, as the grounds man that worked at the police station, passed away and the post has not yet been filled.

The glass door at the Community Service Centre (CSC) entrance Is shattered.

However, the Supply Chain Management (SCM) Commander, is currently looking for alternatives with which to replace the glass door. The roof of the CSC leaks when it rains.

There is a shortage of space for the storage of case dockets and other official documents. Currently, a detention cell is used to store case dockets.

The detention cells at the police station are in a poor condition. Rain water seeps through the roof.

Reply:

(1)(a)(b) Yes, the South African Police Service (SAPS) does have a Sexual Harassment Policy ln place. However, the SAPS does not have an assault policy. In terms of the SAPS Discipline Regulations, 2016, Regulation 5(3)(x), an employee will be guilty of a misconduct if he or she assaults, or threatens to assault any other employee. In terms of the SAPS Discipline Regulations, 2016, an employee will be guilty of misconduct if he or she commits an act of sexual harassment. In the SAPS Discipline Regulations, 2016, sexual harassment falls under serious misconduct, which must be dealt with, in terms of the "expeditious process", which allows for the immediate dismissal of a member.

(1)(b)(i) In terms of the current SAPS Discipline Regulations, 2016, reports of sexual harassment and assault are investigated by invoking the provisions of Regulation 8(1), which stipulates that a supervisor must complete an investigation into the allegations of misconduct, within 30 calendar days, or as soon as practically possible, thereafter. If the supervisor is satisfied that the alleged misconduct is of a serious nature and justifies the holding of a disciplinary hearing, he or she will refer the outcome of the investigation to the employer representative, within seven working days, to initiate a disciplinary enquiry. The employee must be informed of the alleged misconduct and pending investigation.

Reply:

(a) and (b)
The management and protection of all marine resources, which includes abalone and rock lobsters, falls within the ambit of the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (OAFF), as stipulated in the Marine Living Resources Act, 1998 (Act No 18 of 1998). The South African Police Service (SAPS), in close cooperation with DAFF, combats poaching by investigating individual poaching cases, as well as identified syndicates.

The National Integrated Strategy to Combat Wildlife Trafficking, is a draft strategy document, in which all wildlife trafficking, which includes abalone, is addressed. Rock lobster is not addressed by this strategy, as it does not feature on the "Threatened or Protected Species" list.

Profile picture: Groenewald, Mr HB

Groenewald, Mr HB to ask the Minister of Police

(a) What are the names of the stations that have been excluded from the proposed Firearm Amnesty, (b) in which provinces are the specified stations and (c) why were the stations excluded?

Reply:

(a) The following three police stations are excluded from the proposed firearms amnesty.

  • Isipingo.
  • Bellville South.
  • Kanyamazane.

(b) These police stations are situated in the following provinces respectively:

  • Isipingo KwaZulu-Natal.
  • Bellville South Western Cape.
  • Kanyamazane Mpumalanga.

(c) These police stations have been selected, based on the following reasons:

Firstly, the following number of firearms have been reported lost/stolen from the Exhibit Management Stores (SAPS 13 Stores) of the respective police stations, during the period 1 April 2016 to 31 October 2017:

Isipingo Police Station - 31firearms.

Bellville South Police Station - 18 firearms.

Kanyamazane Police Station - three firearms.

The reported losses/theft of firearms from the SAPS 13 Stores at these police stations have been tabled as a high risk.

Secondly, the criminal investigations pertaining to the losses/theft of firearms at these SAPS 13 Stores, are still pending and the conclusion thereof needs to be examined, in order to implement preventative measures.

Thirdly, it is in the interest of the firearms amnesty that there must not be any doubt with persons, who wish to participate in the surrendering of firearms during the amnesty period, that such firearms will not be safely kept in the SAPS 13 Stores at police stations.

Fourthly, allowing firearms to be surrendered at the above identified three police stations, may negatively influence the firearms amnesty, which may have a detrimental effect on the success of the amnesty.

It is still the ultimate view and wish of the South African Police Service that the above three police stations must not be excluded from the firearms amnesty but that additional safety measures be implemented at these police stations by the respective provincial commissioners and that an extreme tightened monitoring and auditing system be adopted at these police stations such as daily inspections from the office of the Cluster Commander.

Reply:

1a) The requirements for an appointment or promotion in the South African Police Service (SAPS) are uniform and are contained in Policies or National Instructions. No other specific educational qualifications are prescribed for an appointment as a station commander. In respect of the levels below the Senior Management Service, the requirements are, inter alia; at least a National Qualifications Framework (NQF) 4 (level of Grade 12) qualification, with four years service in a particular rank or a NQF 6 (Degree/Diploma) qualification with two years service in a particular rank.

1b) With regard to the mandatory on-the-job training which is offered to station commanders, there are mandatory station lectures that are to be conducted in the station environment, which are monitored at station, cluster and provincial level. In the Human Resource Development environment, as part of formal training, the Station Management Learning Programme is offered to station commanders, which is a formal station management training programme presented at SAPS Academy, Paarl. As part of this learning programme, learners also conduct practical service delivery inspections at selected stations, on which they are evaluated.

Cassim, Mr Y to ask the Minister of Police

What is the total cost related to the relocation of (a) staff members and (b)(i) samples and (ii) equipment from the Forensic Science Laboratory in Amanzimtoti to laboratories in other provinces due to flood damage?

Reply:

a) The Forensic Science Laboratory, in Amanzimtoti, which hosts the Biology and Chemistry Sections, was flooded on 10 October 2017. This resulted in damage to the property and the evacuation of staff. A total of 89 staff members have been affected and need to be relocated to other laboratories in the country. The cost relating to this incident, will depend on the actual cost and time taken to repair and refurbish the damaged laboratory, including the relocation costs to temporary facilities and the relocation of the services and staff members.

It is estimated that the monthly cost will be R1 428 000,00, if 50 analysts, excluding support members, are temporarily relocated to other forensic laboratories outside the province.

b) A total of 2 173 cases, with samples, will also have to be relocated for analysis at other laboratories, in other provinces. The estimated transport costs are R2 000,00.

c) No equipment will be relocated whilst the repair and refurbishment is done. There will be no cost incurred, in this regard.
