From stings to wings: Integrity management and the Directorate for Priority Crime Investigations
South Africa's new elite police unit, known as the Hawks, has been created in the midst of political change. Objectors have criticised its location in the SAPS, saying that the integrity of the unit, and its ability to conduct politically neutral investigations, may be compromised by its location. Legislation enabling the unit's formation provides for measures to test the integrity of its members. This legislation will need to be coupled with effective leadership characterised by integrity if the unit is to live up to and exceed the image and accomplishments of its predecessor, the Scorpions.
