Corruption Watch and the ISS have established a joint public awareness campaign that focuses on the process resulting in the critical appointments of the South African Police Service (SAPS) national commissioner and the head of the Directorate for Priority Crime Investigations (the Hawks).
The organisations believe that both appointments require a transparent selection process against clear merit-based criteria as recommended in the National Development Plan (NDP) adopted by the Cabinet in 2012. For more information on this campaign click here.

The survey is completely anonymous and the results will be shared with the general public and sent directly to the President, Minister of Police and the Parliamentary Police Portfolio Committee
