Police not winning war against crime - SAPS analyst

2017-08-15
Jenni Evans, News24

Cape Town - The police are not winning the war against crime, an analyst from the police's Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation told MPs on Tuesday.
"From where I am sitting, we are not winning the war, we are not," head of analysis at the Hawks, Major-General Peter Arendse, told the police portfolio committee.

"Well, at least you are being honest," FF Plus MP Pieter Groenewald said when Arendse made the startling revelation during a question-and-answer session after his presentation.
The meeting got off to a shaky start when committee chairperson Francois Beukman refused to let police present their latest report on what they are doing to curb gang violence in the Western Cape, Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal, because they submitted it too late for MPs to prepare.

The committee then moved on to an update on the progress of a specially established unit in the DPCI that focuses on priority crimes: Drugs and illegal firearms.

MPs' anger

It soon emerged that labour issues were holding back the planned restructuring to draw police officers into the unit. This meant they were not able to advertise the posts and finalise the unit's structure. It currently has 178 officers.
MPs were aghast that the unit had not made any arrests or secured any convictions for illegal firearms, or confiscated such firearms in the Western Cape for the latest reporting period from April 1 to June 30.

"So general, you say that in three months in the Western Cape there were no recovered firearms? No? That's a major problem," said Beukman.

During the 2017 State of the Nation Address, President Jacob Zuma announced the establishment of two specialised units within the Hawks, to focus on investigating the priority crimes of drugs and illegal firearms.

According to figures from March 1, 2016 to March 31, 2017, there were 598 arrests nationally for illegal firearms and 101 convictions. A total of 1980 firearms were confiscated.
MPs quickly began tearing apart Arendse's figures, wanting to know why he had added an extra month to the one year reporting period, and why there were convictions in areas that showed no arrests in the province-by-province breakdown.
He updated the printed figures as he went along.

A colleague sitting behind him explained that sometimes police included convictions from the reporting period that were not related to the arrests recorded for the same period.
He had to update the figures because the report had been submitted to the committee two weeks ago.

MPs became increasingly unhappy with the information and questioned its veracity.
When Arendse could not provide information on the union issues that were holding back the restructuring, the committee lost its patience.
Beukman said he would not carry on with the meeting and chided police for being ill-prepared.

"SAPS and the DPCI must come back with a full presentation," Beukman said and ended the meeting.

HOUSE NUMBERS

Is your house clearly numbered? Do this exercise when you come home one evening – look for your house number! If YOU can’t see it, an emergency vehicle won’t see it! A visible house number may just save a life one day.

I ride with the SAPS and also respond to police complaints as I have a police radio. Many times it is difficult to find homes as no house numbers are visible anywhere. The minutes lost trying to find your house number can mean the difference between life and death. CKN made sure your road name was re-painted so please see that your home can be found at night.

A warning to folk who have just moved into the area – be on your guard – amid the confusion of moving, your home could be a soft target



CRIME REPORTING TIPS

When you phone the Honeydew Police Station on 011 801 8613/4/5 please take note

Residents are asked to take care when phoning burglary and robbery complaints through to the SAPS.

A burglary is when your house is broken into whilst you are away. The SAPS will come to take statements but will not “break their necks” to get to you as it is now after the event.

A robbery is when you have been held up and robbed at gunpoint. When a robbery is reported, all available resources are despatched to the caller.

Please make the differentiation between the two crimes when phoning the SAPS.

When reporting suspicious cars and persons, please try and take down as many details as possible e.g. the time the vehicle was spotted, the color of the vehicle, the make and if possible, the registration number.  

When reporting suspicious people remember their race, gender (male or female), height, clothes, color of their clothes, distinctive features e.g. birth marks, limps etc. 

Advising me, the SAPS or Dowry that a suspicious “white car” was seen in the area is insufficient.   Clear descriptions make it so much easier to catch the culprits. 

Many domestic servants report suspicious people. Please make them aware of the above

Why testing your house alarm is important!


It is important to test your house alarm every two weeks. This helps the security company to verify the following:

  • That they are receiving a signal in the control room for your alarm activation as well as a panic signal.
  • If a signal is not received a technician can be sent to replace the radio
