WATCH | Policewoman in hot water for wearing pink dress
A police officer is going to be reprimanded by her superiors for wearing a pink dress and an apron while certifying documents for members of the public in Gauteng.
“The manner in which the woman is dressed while rendering a service to the public is inappropriate and can therefore not be condoned. The matter will thus be addressed with the employee‚” Brigadier Mathapelo Peters said in a statement on Wednesday.
A video of the woman‚ perusing documents and stamping them inside a police station‚ was shared on social media.
Peters confirmed that she was in fact a SAPS member who was authorised to certify documents.
Gauteng Police Commissioner Lieutenant-General Deliwe de Lange condemned the “unprofessional attire worn while rendering a service to the public.
“We remain purposeful in enhancing all front-line service delivery points towards regaining public confidence and strengthening relations between the police and the public.”
