Police management condemns manhandling of a woman by police officers

PARKTOWN: Police Management have condemned in the strongest terms, what appears to be a woman being manhandled by police officers at Jeppe Police Station. This comes after station management were alerted to this incident by a bystander in the evening on Wednesday 15 August 2018, as well as a video clip that has since gone viral on social media.

“It is totally unacceptable that a member of the public, more so a woman, should be ill-treated in such a manner. It is also appalling that a woman is manhandled by the very people who are supposed to be prioritising her safety,” said the Provincial Commissioner.

The Commissioner has now sanctioned an urgent departmental investigation into this matter.
