General — 27 June 2012

The Police and Prisons Civil Rights Union has noted the appointment of Major General Chris Ngcobo, as the Acting Divisional Commissioner for Crime Intelligence and Protection and Security Services.

The union hopes that although Ngcobo will only be acting in this role, he will be able to stabilise the unit which has been shadowed by an undesirable cloud of scrutiny and alleged controversies.

POPCRU is optimistic that Ngcobo’s 17 year experience at Intelligence and Protection services will ensure he delivers excellent results. We hope that the Major-General’s appointment will motivate police officers to focus on their given mandate, of ensuring a safe and secure South Africa.

Issued by POPCRU on 26 June 2012
