Cape Town - The police have quietly lowered their target of reducing serious violent crime by between 7% and 10% annually.

An official from the National Treasury said in Parliament on Wednesday that national police chief Bheki Cele has revised the percentages because the police have "failed" to reach the higher targets over the past couple of years.

The police have now undertaken to reduce crimes such as murder, rape, hijackings and armed robberies at homes and business by between 4% and 7% each year.

"The new target is low. Given the violent nature of crime in our country I don't think the broad public are going to be happy with this," Rendani Randela admitted to the portfolio committee on police.

R5.5bn more

The new targets have been given to the National Treasury in preparation for the budget speeches of the national departments.

This means Cele and his officials will get R5.5bn more for the 2010-'11 financial year to reach lower targets than those set out in the previous financial year. Sindi Chikunga, ANC MP and committee chair, has promised to call Cele to Parliament to motivate the decision.

Another ANC MP later told Beeld they are "very unhappy" about the new targets. "Actually it's completely unacceptable. We will apply pressure [to have the targets revised]."

DA MP Dianne Kohler Barnard earlier said that Cele and his top management use the money which was set aside for visible policing for "small contingencies such as police parties in Bloemfontein".

"We still don't know how much the party cost or where the money came from."

Outrageous

Up to 38% of the police budget - which is almost R21bn - was intended for visible policing. Currently legislation allows the police to use up to 8% of this budget (which is about R1.7bn) for other purposes without first getting permission from the treasury.

Both the ANC and the DA feel this is outrageous.

"We must ensure that the money is used for the intended purpose," said ANC MP Annelizé van Wyk.

It also seems that there are questions about the tender process followed by the police.

Cele asked the auditor-general's (AG) office to investigate alleged irregularities after certain tenders were awarded. The AG didn't want to elaborate, but did confirm that the investigation will be completed by May.

This lowering of targets is simply to cover up their incompetence with Cele leading the way. The manner in which the police abuse their power (blue lights and the poor chap beaten up in Brakpan) are also a major issue for this one party abusive country we live in

Once again, striving for mediocrity.If you cannot make your target ,lower the standards.Same applies to education and everything else for that matter.If these officials worked in private enterprize they would all be fired.

I think we should be reasonable about this. How can we expect the SAPS to fight crime when they have to use so many of their resources harassing licensed and legal gunowners?

and that simply is why not one of them would be able to make it in the private sector. The new government is the only place where you get more money and need to do less. If you still fail you just lower the tagets further! When you eventually lower it so far that you can achieve it you hold a big party to pat yourself on the back and give yourself a huge increase!

I am in the wrong job... Around here we are told to do more with less... and they have to do less with more (and they don't even get that right)!!! Wonder how much longer SA citizens are going to put up with this...?

The police are overworked and underpaid. People should realise that apartheid caused a lot if poverty with our people hence the high crime situation in this country. To blame Cde Cele for making realistic targets is not going to help achieving anything. You people who continue blaming crime forget what crimes were committed against us. Cde Cele should be praised for the good works he and our government is doing not critisezed.
