KEEPING THE POLICE IN CHECK: Assessing the secretariats for safety and security
Civilian oversight bodies such as the secretariats for safety and security and the ICD have been vocal about recent incidents of police misconduct and abuse of power.

If real transformation of the SAPS and improvements in service delivery are to occur, civilian oversight should be given greater value and support by political and administrative leaders. This article presents the findings of a recent evaluation aimed at identifying ways to strengthen the secretariatsâ€™ role in police oversight.
