Criminologist says more needs to be done to deal with corruption within law enforcement

# Criminologist professor Jaco Barkhuizen says the problem with corruption within law enforcement is the effect on trust in the police, which is very low. Two Tshwane Metro police officers have been fired for terrorising the Centurion community in Pretoria. Their dismissals follow numerous complaints from residents. Barkhuizen says it is a positive sign that something is being done about corrupt law enforcement officials, but a lot more needs to be done.
