There are insufficient funds and resources. Lack of expertise in many fields. Nepotism is the order of the day. The manpower at the institution is extremely low and does not meet the needs of the communities.
To work at South Africa police Service firstly was a joy to until I experienced the corruption based how to get a permanent post also I had experienced that its not easy work there
It is good to work from HRM SAPS because i like to learn new things so was doing different kind of jobs and i obey the office rule,working individual and as a team treating my colleague with respect and also them respect me. There is nothing was bad in that Company.
You get a lot of skills being a police officer,you meet different types of people from criminals to crazies ,it's tough you have to be mentally fit and physically fit ,you get the old types of management that mostly are backwards and not updated with understanding the wellness of employees, you get treated like a criminal but if you're strong you come out best, fight crime and do your best and all is well,one mistake you are the worst criminal but it's a nice job if you love helping people.
I do enjoy my job but there's is no growth at all. I think it is because of the unit structure... You get promoted after 12 years in one post but if you are lucky you get a post before that 12 years.
