Abstract

Since the closure of the SAPS anticorruption unit in 2003, SAPS management have yet to operationalise a plan to address police corruption. The past decade has produced a substantial amount of research on the perceptions and likely causes of and preventive strategies for police corruption. This article compares findings of research projects undertaken in Gauteng between 2004 and 2009 in order to identify commonalities, differences and potential strategic gaps. Findings showed similarities in perception regarding corruption and a "code of silence" among police officials, some doubt regarding the rules and regulations within the SAPS as well as likely causes of and preventive measures for corruption.


Na die sluiting van die SAPD se teenkorrupsie-eenheid in 2003, moet die SAPD-bestuur nog 'n plan operasionaliseer om polisiekorrupsie aan te spreek. Die afgelope dekade het 'n merkwaardige aantal navorsing opgelewer ten opsigte van persepsies oor polisiekorrupsie, moontlike oorsake sowel as voorkomende strategieë. Hierdie artikel vergelyk die bevindinge ten opsigte van drie verskillende projekte wat tussen 2004 en 2009 in Gauteng onderneem is om sodoende ooreenstemings, verskille en moontlike strategiese leemtes te identifiseer. Die bevindinge dui op ooreenstemings met betrekking tot persepsies oor korrupsie en die voorkoms van 'n "kode van stilswye" onder polisiebeamptes, onsekerheid ten opsigte van die reëls en regulasies van die SAPD sowel as moontlike oorsake van en maatreëls om korrupsie mee te voorkom.
