Media Statement on reducing contact at SAPS centres for non essential documents certification
Media Statement on reducing contact at South African Police Service (SAPS) centres for non-essential documents certification.
The South African Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SACCI) has been working hard with other social partners in reducing the impact of the Corona Virus pandemic.
After consultations with the South African Police Service (SAPS) Gauteng Provincial leadership, the South African Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SACCI) would like to bring to the attention of business and the public the following;
1. The SAPS client service Centres and stations must observe social distancing protocols by reducing non-essential engagements in the SAPS service centres.
2. In this regard we urge business to avoid requesting job applicants from certifying their documents including academic certificates, at SAPS centres, until they have been short listed for the positions for which they have applied.
3. We must do this to reduce the unnecessary movement at SAPS stations to reduce the rate of Covid -19 infections and flatten the curve of infections.
We urge business owners and the public to cooperate in this regard and join in the fight against this terrible scourge that is threatening the country’s economic well-being.
