WC Police Ombudsman hits the ground running
Vusi Pikoli took up the position last year and will monitor police service delivery in the province.
CAPE TOWN - Western Cape Police Ombudsman Vusi Pikoli says he's already had meetings with institutions including the National Prosecuting Authority and the Justice Department in a bid to foster good relations with his office.
Pikoli took up the position last year and will monitor police service delivery in the province.
He, along with former Constitutional Court Judge Kate O'Regan, presided over the Khayelitsha Commission of Inquiry, which investigated police inefficiencies in the township.
Pikoli insists his office is not toothless and it's part of provincial powers in ensuring effective policing in the province.
"The office firstly is setup in terms of the provincial powers when it comes to policing, therefore it is a direct product of Chapter 11 of the Constitution of the Republic."
