Police spokesman‚ Brigadier Vish Naidoo said in April that some of the information which he had been provided by the SAPS national detective services was “inadequate”.
He could not explain why those at the detective services had only provided limited information‚ which included photographs of some suspects‚ but no details of their crimes‚ or names but no photographs.
The Times through a search of Interpol’s most wanted list has established that SA police are searching for one South African internationally. There are six South African citizens wanted by other countries.

The FBI has turned to technology to track down fugitives with the launch of a Most Wanted app. The smartphone application contains a huge database of its most sought-after crooks complete with images, descriptions, last-known locations and how much reward is available for information leading to their arrest.
The Wanted app is designed to harness the power of the public by allowing citizens to help tip-off the Feds to potential suspects. Like a modern-day wanted poster, should someone see a suspicious person or a news report catch their eye to a familiar face, they can use the free iOS and Android app to search their city and scroll through a list of individuals they think they might have come in contact with.
There are more than 500 profiles on the app searchable by name, alias and country complete with a description of crimes individuals are wanted for. At the bottom

After almost six months on the run, fugitive Terry Strickland’s luck finally ran out last Sunday.
At 5am, he was driving through El Paso, Texas, when he found himself swarmed by 18 FBI agents and local cops and taken into custody.
Strickland was wanted over a double murder more than 1,500 miles away in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Agent Doug Lindquist revealed Strickland had been caught following a tip-off from a member of the public and it was another success for the FBI’s famous ‘Top Ten Most Wanted’ campaign.
Since 1950, the Federal Bureau of Investigations has been keeping a list of America’s most heinous villains in a bid to concentrate the public’s attention.
It’s been proven to work time and time again.
Strickland was the 512th fugitive to be put on the list and the 480th to be captured.

Among the dozens of Russians punished this week by the Obama administration over election-related hacking, the FBI has pegged two as cybercriminals among the most wanted on the planet.
PUTIN VOWS NOT TO STOOP TO OBAMA’S LEVEL AFTER INTEL OPERATIVES KICKED OUT
The cyber pros, not specifically tied to election hacking, appeared to specialize in fraud, according to the feds. They were identified as 29-year-old Alexsey Belan — known online as “Abyrvaig” and “Fedyunya” — and 33-year-old Yevgeny Bogachev — AKA “lucky12345” and “slavik.” The Russian nationals’ specific whereabouts are unknown, according to the feds. Combined, their cyberactivity hit victims in the U.S. and abroad costing them more than $100 million, the FBI reported.

We’ve all seen how the criminal justice system is portrayed on TV. From NCIS and Law & Order to White Collar and Cops, we’re led to believe that we know how the system works. But how much do we really know about what goes on?
Author Robert Cromwell has actually been there, behind the lines, searching for truth and justice–and finding that they are not always easily connected.
Fugitive Man: Hunting Violent Criminals for the FBI and Searching for Justice for the Innocent Convict details his own story–his work as a New Jersey police officer and NCIS agent, and his twenty-two-year FBI career–looking at some of his more interesting cases along the way and giving us the chance to see inside the day-to-day workings of an agent’s life. As we read Cromwell’s story, we also come to understand why, despite the incredible good it does, the criminal justice system is not always just.
Robert Cromwell retired as an FBI Special Agent in Charge following a distinguished twenty-two-year career. More than half his FBI career involved investigations within the FBI’s Violent Crime Program and he was recognized by the FBI Director as one of the FBI’s most successful fugitive hunters. Prior to joining the FBI, Cromwell served as a New Jersey police officer and a Special Agent with NCIS, the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. Following retirement, Cromwell became part owner of the Police Community Net, an online learning center for law enforcement, featuring nationally recognized subject matter experts providing online courses in law enforcement subjects. He also serves on the Board of the Innocence Project of Florida, working to exonerate innocent people wrongfully sent to prison, and is currently Board Chairman.
