dc.description.abstractThe main aim of this study was to assess the effectiveness of the PMS applied by the SAPS, using the case of Nyanga Metropole. The primary objective of this study was to assess the effectiveness of employee performance management systems at the SAPS, in the Western Cape Province. The secondary objective of this study is to understand and investigate challenges experienced by SAPS while the PMS is implemented. To determine the existing practice and awareness of performance appraisal. To measure cooperation and coordination among members and other partners which will therefore assist in connecting jurisdictional tensions and prevent conflicts amongst members of SAPS and the community. To recommend workable approaches for improving the PMS, and suggest the performance management programmes that should be implemented and monitored for support of the SAPS. The rationale for selecting Nyanga was because it is a less developed location and also has a high poverty rate and lots of crime, which lead to affecting police member’s performance. The study employed mixed methods where data was triangulated between qualitative and quantitative sources. Mixed methods research provides strengths that offset the weaknesses of both quantitative and qualitative research. Mixed methods research provides more evidence for studying a research problem than either quantitative or qualitative research alone (Creswell, 2009: 12-13).en_US
