The role of the Provincial Police Ombudsman is to enhance the efficiency of police services and improve relations between the police and communities by investigating complaints of police inefficiency and by investigating any breakdown of relations between the police and communities in the province. The mandate of this office is limited to the investigation of complaints of inefficiencies against members of the South African Police Service in the Western Cape and members of the Cape Town Metro Police Department. The recently released 2019/2020 Annual Performance Report highlights the successes and challenges encountered by the Office of the Ombudsman during this period.
