SAPS dismisses reports of police cellphone allowance cuts

According to South African Police Service (SAPS) spokesperson Brigadier Vish Naidoo, the introduction of the Terrestrial Radio (Tetra) Digital Communication System in the police force has been so successful that police do not have to depend on cellphones as a means to communicate.

Speaking to Gugs Mhlungu and Sizwe Dhlomo on #NightTalk, Brigadier Naidoo dismissed media reports that SAPS had cut cellphone allowances of officers in specialised units.

The Tetra system, which was initially used in Gauteng SAPS and is now also used in the Eastern Cape, is used for communication among operational members in the SAPS, which includes 10111 centres.
