Policing union calls for reintroduction of specialised units
The South African Policing Union (Sapu) is calling for the re-establishment of specialised units.
The union says this should be a top priority for the South Africa Police Service (SAPS).
Speaking to Joanne Joseph, Sapu's general secretary Oscar Skommere says they can't deal with issues using task teams.
