Yes. The SAPS Compensation budget has been significantly reduced over the Medium Term Expenditure Framework (MTEF), which resulted in the SAPS Fixed Establishment (headcount) being hugely reduced over this period. To ensure that the compensation budget is not exceeded, very minimal enrolment of new Police recruits will take place over the MTEF.
- The intake is planned for 23 January 2022; and
- It is envisaged to enroll 3000 new Police recruits.
