Law Enforcement

The aim of these vocational industry-focused qualifications is to equip students with the basic tools, knowledge and practical techniques required to perform their functions in terms of the Criminal Procedure Act and other specific legislation, which grant powers of law enforcement to certain categories of officials. These courses are geared towards individuals already active in certain non-SAPS law enforcement roles and wish to upgrade their current knowledge and skills, as well as new entrants into the law enforcement environment. Candidates who successfully completed the Diploma in Law Enforcement will undergo a shortened training period if accepted into SAPS. Please note that neither the Higher Certificate (Criminal Justice), nor the Diploma (Law Enforcement) provide a direct access into the LLB, LLB (extended), BCom (Law) or the BA (Law). Please do not apply for either of these with the intention to articulate to any of the other law qualifications upon completion, as this is not currently possible.
