Taking Joburg’s crime fighting expertise to the next level, top JMPD officers have been sent to China to attend an advanced crime fighting course.


Nine Johannesburg Metropolitan Police Department (JMPD) officers recently journeyed to China to attend an advanced training course at the National Police University of China (NPUC) in the City of Shenyang.

This additional training received by the nine officers will significantly enhance the Department of Safety’s capacity to fight crime and keep residents safe. These officers will return with deeper crime fighting expertise which can be shared with others at JMPD.

Through the engagements which South Africa have had with the Police Attaché, Mr. Zhigang Wang, of the Embassy of the Peoples Republic of China in South Africa, the nine officers will be introduced the Police Service in China and undergo intensive training on:

  • Criminal Investigation Procedure;
  • Crime Scene Investigation;
  • Drug Control and International Cooperation;
  • Study credit card crime and associated countermeasures;
  • Computer Crime Investigation;
  • Handprint Development and Analysis Techniques;
  • Footprint Identification Techniques;
  • Application of DNA Techniques in Criminal Investigation;
  • Analysis Techniques of Explosive Devices and Fragmentation; and
  • An array of other crime prevention skills.

This initiative will without a doubt assist the Department in our efforts to keep our residents safe. NPUC has generously sponsored all the travel, accommodation and training course costs for all nine Officers.

The following top-performing officers from different Units in the JMPD were carefully selected to attend the training course:

  1. Sherraz Mahomed Hoosen (team leader as elected by the delegation)
  2. Lerato Mofokeng
  3. Stanley Swartz
  4. Sekese Ntsoane
  5. Billy Osborne
  6. Cynthia Mbobela
  7. Duncan Klaas
  8. Phumlani Masango
  9. Rico van Vuuren

The Department wishes to express its highest appreciation to the Chinese Embassy and NPUC for this rare opportunity.
