Recently the South African Minister of Safety and Security, Charles Nqakula, argued that local and municipal police should be thought of as 'co-owned' by communities. To enable the realisation of this vision Nqakula was reported to be considering 'changes to the Police Services Act and the laws governing municipal policing'. In this report the Minister is quoted as saying that 'no police force, no matter how big it is, can ever effectively deal with crime' alone. In the Sunday Times, also of 6 May 2007, the Minister is reported as arguing for the importance of forging a closer relationship between the police and the private security industry.
