The Independent Complaints Directorate is investigating an estimated 6000 cases against the police, the ICD's executive director Francois Beukman said in Pretoria on Thursday.
Addressing the National Press Club, Beukman said that of the 6000 cases, he estimated that 2500 were criminal cases.
ICD spokesman Moses Dlamini said 40 percent of the cases were criminal matters, the majority of which were crimes such as assault, murder, attempted murder and assault occasioning grevious bodily harm.
Dlamini said that very often police training came up as an issue during such cases.
Currently the ICD had 292 service staff and about 100 investigative officers, Beukman said.
