Towards a Strategy for Prevention: The Occurrence of Deaths in Custody or as a Result of Police Action in Gauteng, April-December 1997

This report goes beyond simply looking at the circumstances of occurrence of police custody/action deaths in Gauteng and attempts to provide the framework for a strategy which would aim to assist in the prevention of these deaths, with the intention that the rate of these deaths be reduced dramatically in the medium term. The report is therefore intended to stimulate discussion around the prevention of police custody/action deaths as well as providing direction to further research.
