ON 14 July, the provincial commissioner of KwaZulu-Natal, Lieutenant General Mmamonnye Ngobeni met with cluster commanders, station commanders and detective branch commanders in KZN at Amanzimtoti Civic Hall.

At the meeting, she urged detectives to put more effort into their investigations to ensure increased detection, conviction rates

and most importantly, to ensure feedback to complainants on cases investigated.

The conference was aimed at strategically sharing ideas and best practices that will assist detectives in improving their performance with regards to investigations and thereby improving on

service delivery to communities.

The commissioner reminded detectives of their obligations in terms of the Batho Pele principles and the SAPS Code of Conduct.

The NPA chief prosecutors gave guidelines to detectives on how they can work in improving the conviction rate together. Detectives were encouraged to improve overall performance.

“Detectives must utilise the skills they possess professionally and effectively within the frame work of the law. They play an important role in ensuring that criminals stay behind bars for as long as possible and we are committed to empowering our detectives with the necessary tools to do the job,” she said. - Supplied
