NUMBERS THAT COUNT: National monitoring of police conduct
Publicly available data on police misconduct and the use of force has been found to be unreliable and inconsistent. Such information is important for public accountability, but also for police managers to monitor their staff and thereby improve performance and service delivery. Indicators of police use of lethal and nonlethal force, torture, public complaints and corruption must be developed and monitored by the police, and reported to the public via the SAPS annual report.
