Independent Police Investigative Directorate

National Department Budget for 2015-16

Vote purpose

Ensure independent oversight of the South African Police Service and the Municipal Police Services. Conduct independent and impartial investigations of identified criminal offences allegedly committed by members of the South African Police Service and the Municipal Police Services and make appropriate recommendations.

Mandate

The Independent Police Investigative Directorate exercises its functions in accordance with the Independent Police Investigative Directorate Act (2011). The act gives effect to the provisions of section 206(6) of the Constitution, which provides for the establishment of an independent police complaints body that must investigate any alleged misconduct of, or offence committed by, a member of the police service. The thrust of the directorate’s work is to investigate serious and priority crimes allegedly committed by members of the South African Police Service and Municipal Police Services.

The Independent Police Investigative Directorate Act (2011), which came into effect on 1 April 2012, grants the directorate an extended mandate and changes the focus of the directorate’s work from a complaints driven organisation to one that prioritises the investigative function. The new act places stringent obligations on the South African Police Service and Municipal Police Services to report matters that must be investigated by the directorate and ensures the implementation of disciplinary recommendations made by the directorate.
