The South African police earn a good salary and as we know we can not do without them. The day to day security they render directly and indirectly comes with high pay.
Though most of the public scrutinize the police, almost no province in the country can last a day without them.

As the saying goes “Police is your friend“, we can not compare their importance in our society.
