The SAPS In the South African Police Service, corruption typically manifests in forms of criminals bribing officers to manipulate evidences against them whereas victims especially those who can’t afford to bribe the officers are denied justice. Some of the instances referred to here include: The 10 SAPS members who were arrested at the Parow police station on bribery and corruption charges in late 2014; The 6 police officials arrested by Hawks earlier this year in three different provinces, accused of corruption; The national police commissioner, Riah Phiyega, who is accused of tipping off the Western Cape police commissioner, Arno Lamoer, about a Hawks corruption probe against him; Arno Lamoer who was allegedly bribed by the Cape Town drug dealer Salim Dawjee with more than R1,6 million so as to manipulate his cases; And the corrupt
