Podcast: Liza Grobler Discusses the Response to Her Writing on Police Corruption

Crossing the LineLiza Grobler joined Jenny Crwys-Williams in studio at Talk Radio 702 to discuss her book, Crossing the Line: When cops become criminals.

The book started out as Grobler’s PhD thesis, which was awarded in 2006. She says that initially the police had reacted negatively when excerpts from her thesis were published in the newspapers in 2007 but that, since then, new police management in the Western Cape have come to understand and accept that they have a problem with corruption.

Grobler said that there are police stations in the Western Cape at which corruption is systemic, particularly in areas that have a high crime rate.
