Police Delays Graphic

The Social Justice Coalition (SJC), Equal Education and the Nyanga CPF filed papers in the Equality Court to compel the South African Police Service (SAPS) to reallocate human police resources in an equitable manner that does not discriminate against poor, black communities. After multiple attempts at engaging with the SAPS went unheard, litigation was the last step. However, SAPS has regularly delayed court proceedings and used state money to impede equality.

The SJC commissioned an infographic to illustrate these delays.
