Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa, his deputy Makhotso Sotyu and the national police commissioner, Riah Phiyega, were expected to attend.

Crime-fighting strategies would also be reviewed.

“We will pay attention to issues such as strengthening command and control, partnerships with communities, allocation of resources, training and many other operational frameworks.” - Sapa
