Saps boss: Less than 5% of the police are "contaminated"

National Police Commissioner, General Khehla Sitole, says they need to agree and acknowledge that criminals have a new modus operandi which has not been contested.

The South African Police Services (Saps) has launched a campaign to tackle cash-in-transit heists, armed robberies and hijackings across the country.

It's not necessarily the fact that you are losing the battle against the crime.

General Khehla Sitole, National Police Commissioner

What criminals do every day is they invent new modus operandi and from the side of the police, we do continuous analysis which we could even escalate to research to find out what is new on the fire.

General Khehla Sitole, National Police Commissioner

General Sitole says they have decided to up their game following the results of research conducted.

He says they have made many arrests where police officers were found to have been involved.

Many are already outside because many have already been arrested.
