The minister was speaking in Pretoria at a briefing on plans to be implemented this year.
Acting National Commissioner Khomotso Phahlane announced his back-to-basics campaign last year which included restructuring of the police management.
The minister says the police management structure has been finalised and officers are in the process of being appointed.
“The point of emphasis is placing people with skills wherein they can utilise them.”
Phahlane says the back-to-basics programme includes recovery plans for the worse performing police stations.
“Improving police visibility to reduce opportunities for crime, contacting of special police stations operations to prevent crime.”
He says a detective services recovery plan is also being rolled out.
