SAPS: ENTRY LEVEL TRAINEES

 

Request for assistance from stations to recruit prospective applicants: January 2017 intake: Gauteng province

Contact SAPS for a list of stations that will possibly receive an allocation for the January 2017 Intake.

No posts for Entry Level Trainees will be advertised during the 2016/2017 financial year as other Provinces will be making use of their database.

The database for Gauteng Province is exhausted after finalization of the March 2016 Intake.

The assistance of all Stations is hereby requested to recruit applicants out of their own vicinity for the January 2017 Intake providing they meet all requirements as stipulated in Regulation 11 of the South African Police Service.

It is requested that one or two members at each station be tasked with these duties which will include the issuing, receiving and screening of applications. Only applications of applicants who meet the requirements must be submitted to this office.

This office wants to emphasize the need for the Target Equity groups which include the White, Coloured, and Indian applicants as well as females. Your assistance in targeting these groups is of utmost importance. The African race group should however not be excluded.

All applications of qualifying applicants must be submitted weekly to the office of Major Henning Room FE 157 for further processing.

Based on the above this office requests your assistance in ensuring that the allocated posts for Gauteng Province be reached without advertising the posts in the media.

This office experienced various challenges and complaints during previous recruitment phases with regard to corruption allegations and would therefore sensitize Station Commanders, Support Heads and HRM Commanders to be aware of this issue and to put measures in place to curb any complaints.

Your assistance in this regard is appreciated.

Police warn patrolers

 

Police have warned neighbourhood watch patrollers to stop brandishing weapons at crime scenes.

These include firearms, pepper ball and airsoft guns, as well as knives, pangas, metal pipes and spears regulated by the Dangerous Weapons Act.

And although patrollers are allowed to carry licensed firearms, they will be on their own if they shoot a suspect.

Police in Diep River, Cape Town, have issued a warning reminding the patrollers about the do’s and don’ts of their jobs.

“While it is your constitutional right to carry your licensed firearm, the law states that it will be concealed at all times,” said Warrant Officer Keith Chandler.

“Brandishing pepper ball guns, airsoft and any other weapon falls under the Dangerous Weapons Act and is considered unlawful.”

Police spokesman Lieutenant-Colonel Andre Traut said warnings were necessary to sensitise patrollers about the law.

Brian Wilkinson, chairman of BKM Watch, which is in the Diep River policing precinct, said members were trained and were specifically told not to brandish weapons.

“I think the police were just reiterating what we are enforcing in terms of the training procedures we have,” he said.

National police spokesman Vish Naidoo said: “If you are in a neighbourhood watch and you have obtained your firearm legally, nothing stops you from carrying [it].”

But if a patroller shoots someone, the law would take its course.

“Each person that has a firearm knows how to handle their firearm, that’s why they go to all those competency tests,” he said.

“Whether they use that firearm in whatever circumstances or situation, they must be accountable for their own actions.”

The new Western Cape Community Safety Act aims to “professionalise” neighbourhood watches. While it does not mention firearms, it says patrollers will face expulsion if they are convicted of a sexual offence or a crime involving theft, violence or dishonesty.

Moot-polisie slaan toe op dwelmhandelaars

Drie verdagte dwelmhandelaars is onlangs in die Moot vasgetrek.

Polisiewoordvoerder adjudant-offisier Anton Breedt sê twee mense is Vrydagaand in hegtenis geneem nadat hulle met groot hoeveelhede heroïne betrap is.

“Omstreeks 23:30 Vrydagaand het ’n verdagte voertuig die aandag van patrollielede getrek. Hulle het die voertuig beveel om in Annie Bothalaan naby die berugte Melgisedek-geboue stil te hou.”

Breedt sê polisie het die motor en die bestuurder deursoek.

“Die 38-jarige man van Tanzanië is toe in hegtenis geneem nadat polisie omtrent 33 pakkies heroïene aan sy lyf gevind het.”

Volgens Breedt het verdere ondersoeke gelei tot die inhegtenisname van een van die verdagtes se familielede.

“Tydens die ondersoek het die man inligting verskaf oor waar die dwelms vandaan kom. Hy het ons na ’n perseel in Pretoria-Wes gelei waar ’n 45-jarige vrou met ’n verdere 20 pakkies heroïene gevang is wat aan haar liggaam versteek was.”

Breedt sê die geskatte waarde van dié dwelms is R1 600.

“Ons vermoed die dwelms was bestem vir inwoners of kopers by Melgisedek.”

Nog ’n man is Saterdagaand met dagga op die hoek van Pierneefstraat en 24e Laan betrap.

“Die man is gevang met ongeveer 199 gram dagga ter waarde van R1 000.”

Al drie die verdagtes is aangekla vir handel in dwelms en het Maandag in die hof verskyn.

“Die inhegtenisnames is ’n positiewe teken vir die Moot-polisie nadat ons ’n paar weke gelede ’n veldtog teen dwelms in die Moot geloods het,” sê Breedt.

Skootrekenaardief ontstel sy suster

Op 30 Junie het ’n “Romeo” — ’n Kilnerpark Sekuriteit (KPS) reaksiemotor — ondersoek in gestel by ’n alarm in Starkeylaan. Na hulle niks by die perseel gevind het nie, het hulle ’n verdagte persoon opgemerk en hom begin agtervolg.

Lede van die gemeenskap is in gespan om te help met die agtervolging. Onderandere het John “Dakar” Dreyer en Hendrik van der Westhuizen, Voorsitter van MootGi, gehelp om die verdagte aan te keer.

Met goeie samewerking en koördinasie, is die strop al stywer getrek, om die verdagte rustig aan te keer. Na ondersoek ingestel is, is gevind dat die verdagte ’n tabletrekenaar, skootrekenaar, juweliersware, en ander waardevolle items in sy sak gehad het. Die verdagte het beweer dat die items aan sy suster behoort het, en dat sy baie kwaad sou wees vir hom, oor hy die items by hom gehad het.

Volgens Hendrik van der Westhuizen, het die “Romeo’s” die rekenaars aan geskakel om te vind dat dit behoort aan ’n man en vrou in ons gemeenskap, wat aan hulle bekend was. “Vic-Lima” — SAPD Villieria — is ontbied, maar na ’n lang wag het die “Romeo’s” die verdagte gearresteer en na Villieria Polisiestasie geneem.

 

Hendrik van der Westhuizen het almal betrokke geprys, KPS se lede vir wakker en professionele diens, en het ook die gemeenskapslede betrokke geprys vir hul betrokkenheid.
