BURGER, Johan. Leading a horse to water...: Assessing review mechanisms of SAPS performance. SA crime q. [online]. 2015, n.53, pp.49-58. ISSN 2413-3108.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4314/SACQ.V53I1.5.

There have been no shortage of reviews, evaluations and audits of police performance in South Africa over the past decade. This article provides a detailed description of the key findings of a number of reviews relating to the role and function of the SAPS. A closer reading of these reviews points to considerable agreement about the systemic weaknesses that confront the police organisation today. What is problematised in this article is the apparent inability and/or unwillingness of senior leadership to address the organisational defects through deliberative and concerted interventions. This lack of action has dire consequences for both the police organisation and the communities it is supposed to serve.
