This edition arises from a recent victim support project run by the
IPT and funded by the European Union Foundation for Human Rights which
has involved the provision of training and facilitation to four police
stations in KwaZulu-Natal and two in the Eastern Cape. This is the first
of a two issue series which is based on information gathered during our
work with these six stations. This issue provides some background information
regarding the Victim Empowerment Programme and goes on to discuss the
role of the South African Police Service and the particular problems they
have experienced in implementing the Victim Empowerment Programme. We
also suggest some ways in which various stakeholders could work together
for better station-level implementation.
