POLICE PUBLIC COMPLAINTS

It has come to the attention of police that a number of complaints from members of the public in the National Capital District against police have been poorly attended to in some cases and in some not attended at all.

The RPNGC is serious about discipline and is committed to taking action against undisciplined, abusive and corrupt policemen and policewomen. But we need your help to identify such rogue elements. Should you come across police personnel who are acting illegally or being abusive you are required to take note of the following:

1.  Identify the policeman. Members of the Constabulary would normally have a name tag on their uniforms. If they don’t have any visible form of identification then ask for their names. If they refuse then take note of their features and make sure you can identify them later when required to. If you can discretely photograph them with your mobile telephone that will help;

2. Take note of the registration of the vehicle they are driving. Also note the make, model, colour and other features. If you can take a picture of their vehicle then please do so as well.

Immediately after the encounter you should write down your complaint. Get witnesses to also make their statements. If as a result of your encounter with the police you were assaulted then get a medical report of your injuries and take pictures as well. If property has been damaged then get photographs as well. Get a professional opinion on the cost of the damages to your property. The RPNGC is seriously considering making the individual policemen or policewomen personally liable for part of or all of the damages/compensation/ or legal expenses as a result of their professional negligence or undue regard for life and property.

Please write your letter of complaint regarding police brutality / abuse / illegal actions / unprofessional conduct etc., to the following:
