In a series of five Issue Papers, Lukas Muntingh and Jean Redpath take a few steps back and ask whether we are indeed problematising the correct issues and, if so, are we problematising the issue in a manner that will restore trust and thus legitimacy in the NPA.

South African Police Service and Independent Police Investigative Directorate Annual Reports 2019/2020
24 Feb, 2021 from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM

24 February 2021: The South African Police Service (SAPS) budget exceeded R100 billion for the first time in 2020/2021, with increases to SAPS over time tending to beat inflation. The SAPS Annual Report for the previous year, 2019/2020, only became available in late 2020. This report sheds some light on where and how this money is usually spent prior to the State of Disaster conditions. What can the Annual Report tell us about the state of policing before the State of Disaster? The SAPS Annual Report 2019/20 can be found here. The Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID) is supposed to ensure certain prescribed actions by SAPS members are carefully scrutinised and members are held to account. What does the IPID Annual Report for 2019/2020 tell us about the extent to which they are able to do so? The IPID Annual Report 2019/20 can be found here. This webinar will pick out highlights and lowlights from the 2019/2020 Annual Reports of SAPS and IPID with a particular focus on the failure to discipline and hold SAPS members accountable for their actions. Facilitator: Kristen Petersen Panellists: • Jean Redpath (ACJR) • Lukas Muntingh (ACJR) • Janelle Mangwanda (ACJR) After registration participants will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining each webinar. ACJR wishes to acknowledge the Open Society Foundation-South Africa and the Sigrid Rausing Trust for making these webinars possible.
