I'm the one of three types graduate in SAPS, but my qualifications were useless in SAPS,they don't promote us, you get qualification's bonus once

South Africa Police Service is a good organisation but it need the following to improve: 1.Management Skills Most management are not trained to lead.leadership must be improved. 2.It does not take education serious SAPS have a lot of graduate that thier qualifications are not considered e.g if you completed your qualification SAPS must increase your salary or promote you.
