Thembisile Patekile, the commissioner of the Western Cape Police in Cape Town, stated that the South African Police Service ( SAPS) was considering installing body cameras on its members to improve crime-fighting efforts.
The City of Cape Town started on a comparable journey recently.
In an effort to make the city safer, it installed body-worn cameras on at least 800 law enforcement officers.
The police department’s bodycams will soon be introduced, according to Lieutenant-General Patekile.
” For the government, it’s a process that goes along with tendering and other processes that you have to have, of which management has already decided to make that and which is going to be started, but not in this province but in other provinces with its cameras and legislation that must be applied and complied with.”
