sapsANA reports that national police commissioner General Khehla Sitole on Wednesday told MPs that there were strategies that had been put in place to prioritise police safety at all stations, although he admitted there were challenges.  

He said some of the police stations needed to be completely redesigned as they made police members vulnerable.  However, some police station premises were being rented, which became a barrier to raising safety measures at those particular locations.  Sitole was briefing the parliamentary portfolio committee on police about the eNgcobo police station killings in the Eastern Cape earlier this year, in which five police officers and a retired soldier were gunned down.  He was also giving an update on the force’s technology strategy, with special reference to CCTV for police stations.
