Policing in South Africa in 2007: Key Issues and Developments

"In November 2007 the Institute for Security Studies (ISS) organised a conference on key issues and developments on policing in South Africa,funded by the Open Society Foundation of South Africa and the Hanns Seidel Foundation. An important theme that emerged was the effect of the 2006 restructuring of the South African Police Service (SAPS) on its ability to police crowds. The SAPS participated fully in the conference and papers were presented by members of the police."
