Petition to Protect Women

The ANC-led national government must fix SAPS to protect women from the serious threat of rape, sexual abuse, exploitation and murder. Sign this petition to join the DA’s call for a justice system that is well-resourced, honest and works for all.

A DA-led national government will change the system and professionalise the South African Police Service (SAPS) to create a safe environment for all South Africans.

SOUTH AFRICA URGENTLY NEEDS:

  • Properly trained SAPS officers to deal with victims of rape and other sensitive crimes.
  • Rapid handling and investigation of rape cases.
  • Specialised units focusing on safe streets.
  • More school outreach programmes focusing on child safety.
  • Specialised sexual crimes units that work with victims with mental or physical disabilities.
  • Stricter border control to combat human trafficking.
  • Harsher punishment for SAPS officers who contravene their obligation towards victims of heinous crimes.
  • Compulsory sensitivity training on an annual basis to all SAPS members.
