The Legal Resources Centre (LRC) is challenging the allocation of police human resources in the Western Cape and nationally,
saying there is not an equitable distribution in terms of black and poor neighbourhoods.
In a press statement, the LRC says it has filed an application in the Equality Court against the minister of police, national police commissioner, Western Cape provincial commissioner and the minister for community safety in the Western Cape.
In the application, which was filed on behalf of the Social Justice Coalition and Equal Education, the two organisation argue that there is a constitutional obligation on the South African Police Service to provide resources in an equitable manner.
