The SA Police Service (SAPS), which has been bleeding staff, has called for former members who left the service in good terms to rejoin the force in an effort to “recapacitate to continue to fulfil our constitutional mandate of fighting crime and keeping the inhabitants of this country safe and secure”
In a statement released on Tuesday morning, police spokesperson Colonel Brenda Muridili said: “The organisation is losing members owing to various reasons including retirement, and human resource management has to continue with other means of recruitment, hence the re-enlistment of former members. Successful candidates will be posted where there is currently a shortage, including at specialised units such as family violence, child protection and sexual offences, public order police as well as newly established units such as the taxi violence unit, cold case investigation and murder and robbery.”
