Hawks get smallest slice of detective budget, Parliament hears
8 April 2016
Parliament – The Hawks only get 1.7% of the detective budget slice, Parliament heard on Friday.
The Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation (DPCI) presented their budget to Parliament’s police committee on Friday, where they bemoaned their small allocation.
The DPCI is a sub-programme of the Detective Services within the police, and therefore funds get shared between four sub-programmes.
For the 2016/17 year, the detective services have been allocated R16.7bn.
