Ipid launches 24-hour hotline to receive reports of officers committing crimes

Ipid launches 24-hour hotline to receive reports of officers committing crimesIpid 24-hour hotline was launched on Monday by Police Minister Bheki Cele together with the police watchdog’s executive director Jennifer Ntlatseng.

Cele said the Ipid hotline will enable communities to have better access to justice and recourse.

This hotline is prompted by the need to have the men and women in blue checked.

South Africans will be able to report police officers found committing crimes in real time.

Several officer have been linked to a number of crimes during the lockdown which includes the death of Collins Khosa in April.

Just this morning a top police officer was arrested in connection to charges of corruption, fraud, money laundering and theft.

Cele endorsed this hotline initiative by Ipid.

“I believe the launch of this number brings Ipid once step closer in better positioning itself as an effective and impartial oversight of the police.”

Ntlatseng explained that: “all the community or public does is call the number. It will go straight to a complaint receptionist who will take the complaint. Once it’s registered, it’s allocated to an investigator. The next day the investigator will be calling to understand the depth of the case.”

Cele urged South Africans to only use the number to report police officers linked to crime.
