CRITERIA FOR ANTI HIJACKING AWARDS


CRITERIA FOR BEST TEAM AWARD

As a result of the complexities around combating hijackings it has been decided that the most effective team efforts will be measured on a combination of :

  • Reduction in the number of reported hijackings based on the previous months figure and compared to the same month of the previous year
  • The number of vehicle crime related arrests made
  • Number of vehicle crime related arrested suspects charged on the CAS
  • Number of vehicle crime related arrested suspects charged in court
  • Number of suspects convicted
  • Number of years imprisonment obtained in court for each person convicted
  • Number of vehicles confiscated and positively identified by owners; and
  • Number of second-hand dealers operating without a valid certificate in terms of the Second –hand Goods Act (Act No 23 of 1955) closed down
  • Number of firearms confiscated during the period

Task teams follow a multi skilled approach and apply different disciplines in their each unique way. The criteria for outstanding performance have thus been separated as follows:

Crime Intelligence Gathering

  • Number of suspects arrested from AVIS list
  • Number of stolen and hijacked vehicles positively identified as such
  • Number of cases in which bail was successfully opposed
  • Number of convictions
  • Number of years imprisonment obtained
  • Number of informer claims submitted
