Minister and Deputy Minister meet with the Secretariat
When Mr E N Mthethwa took office as the Minister of Police on the 10th May 2009, he emphasized the need to strengthen civilian oversight of the South African Police Service. The Minister highlighted the
important role the Civilian Secretariat for Police needed to play, not only in providing professional oversight of the police service, but also in the development of policing policy and in the building
of partnerships with communities and civil society.
