Kempton Park - More needs to be done to prevent corruption in the SA Police Service's recruitment process, Deputy Police Minister Makhotso Maggie Sotyu said on Monday.

“A key challenge in the recruitment of a credible work force is to uproot corruption within the recruitment process and to improve police academies,” she said in a speech prepared for delivery at a SAPS workshop in Kempton Park, Gauteng.

“We have all the policies and procedures of recruitment, but the implementation to recruit quality police students is not entirely honest and credible.”

She said the process was besieged with “favouritism, nepotism, allegiance and prejudice”.

“The SAPS top management must encourage everyone in the SAPS not to shy away from blowing the whistle when irregularities, mismanagement and theft of resources are seen,” Sotyu said.

“Prejudiced but deserving potential police recruits, who could have joined the police force to enhance a credible SAPS, will be lost to the SAPS through unprofessionalism, fraud and corruption.” - Sapa
