SAVE OUR COPS: Preventing police killings
On 20 May 2003, a national summit on police killings was held at the SAPS academy in Pretoria – the culmination of a series of provincial meetings on the same topic. Although the national meeting did not achieve its objective – the collaborative drafting of a national action plan – the provincial meetings produced a number of excellent recommendations that deserve to be taken seriously. This article discusses the reasons for the high number of police killings in South Africa and makes suggestions for dealing with the problem.
