The Commissioner of Police has the prerogative to approve all payments made to Police officers in lieu of leave.

Commissioner Bernadus Groenewald made this point after allegations that some applications by some officers to be paid in lieu of leave were denied while some were considered.

Commissioner Groenewald said although leave was a privilege to all officers, one should also remember that officers would eventually be paid any leave not taken or owing when they retired from the force.

“It is not an open application. Only some would be approved based on merit because the approvals of the applications are based on merit,” he said.

Police to improve on complaints

The Police are looking at improving its key performance indicators (KPI) in certain areas this year.

This was after it did not achieve all its KPIs last year.

Commissioner Bernardus Groenewald said one of the areas they would look to improve this year were complaints made against officers and their service delivery.

He said they would improve on this through disciplinary actions on officers.

He also confirmed that he would meet the Minister for Defence, Timoci Natuva, to discuss their strategic plan and the review of the White Paper.

He said Mr Natuva would give them their indicators and they would keep to their key performance areas.
