Unjust allocation of police human resources highlighted

Jean Redpath gave evidence at the Khayelitsha Commission of Inquiry into Allegations of Police Inefficiency and a Breakdown in Relations between the South African Police Service and and the Community in Khayelitsha in May 2014 regarding the relative allocation of police human resources among police stations in the Western Cape.

Redpath argued that the distribution method employed by SAPS did not make sense as it resulted in Harare, a high crime area in Khayelitsha, receiving the lowest per capita allocation of human resources in the whole of the Western Cape. She proposed an alternative method.

Redpath's testimony was reported on in the front page of the Cape Times. The news story is available here.
