Overview

Its population of more than 1.6 million live across a vast area of almost one million square kilometres. With a focus on crime reduction, SAPOL operates from 13 Local Service Areas (LSAs) that are backed by specialist expertise and resources of the centralised Crime and Operations Support Services division.

SAPOL is committed to equipping its officers with the latest technologies to fight crime, reduce paperwork and keep the State’s community safe.
