If you call the SAPS and they arrive on the same day, that’s considered a success.
Sadly, however, there’s no guarantee that the cop who arrives won’t be completely hammered, as was the case of this KZN constable earlier this month.
The video has been doing the rounds since the incident on October 14, and has attracted the attention of Police spokesman Brigadier Jay Naicker.
This reporting via Times LIVE:
[He] said that they had identified an officer from the Mountain Rise police station in Pietermaritzburg as the “culprit”.
“We have established that the officer and his crew had been called to a complaint in their area on October 14. When they arrived‚ it became apparent that one of the officers was intoxicated.”
After the video was taken‚ Naicker said‚ the officer was taken to the station and booked off-duty.
“He has had his firearm taken away and he will be working in the community service centre while disciplinary action against him and his partner runs its course.”
Whilst his partner was sober, the fact that he failed to act against his colleague is also viewed as serious misconduct.
You can almost smell the booze on the constable’s breath from here:
I know that working for the SAPS must drive you to drink, but try and stick to your off-duty hours.
