He has shared some of the plans he has implemented since his appointment in November last year, and explains how police have had to keep up with criminals who have somehow found a way to bypass intelligence.

Each time a new modus operandi comes to the fore, unless you are doing constant modus operandi analysis and research you might not pick up what is new but since I introduced the new turn around vision in the police we have now developed a culture of conducting sustainable modus operandi analysis on a daily basis.

General Khehla Sithole, National Police Commissioner

We are escalating it now to a modus operandi analysis centre that will be working on a daily basis.

General Khehla Sithole, National Police Commissioner

As we continue to police on a daily basis, criminals are studying our plans and find new ways of bypassing the system. You may gather the intelligence, but there must be an ongoing analysis to find out what is the new method they are bringing.
