Below are just a few of the many testimonials that JPSA has received over the years.
JPSA insert on Special Assignment
I unintentionally happened to stumble upon both episodes of “smile you’re on camera” and must say I was impressed with the quality of production and content of the show and thought I should commend both the Special Assignment crew as well as the Justice Project South Africa team for the exceptional work you’ve done and the way in which you’ve gone about doing it.
I thoroughly enjoyed Dembovsky’s “interpretation” of the word “idiot” and wish you all the best in all your present and future projects.

Chairperson I just want to thank you and your organisation from the bottom of my heart about your good work I saw on TV yesterday. JMPD keeps saying nobody complains about what they are doing but does not even say how many if any of those few that do complain do they ever answer at least maybe one of those that complain, whilst continuing with their everyday daylight robbery. Especially the arrogance of ALL JMPD personnel whether at head office or outside in the streets.
I wish to be part of your organisation whether by doing monthly contributions or whatever support I can give to stop this blatant abuse of power that some of us fought for and see it abused everyday by people who are supposed to serve our country but are instead lining their pockets.
Thanx a million times again.

I was really impressed by last nights broadcast of special assignment. It was a real eye opener for me as a law abiding citizen.
I was especially astonished on the lack of education and ability of our “so called” traffic police. I myself never knew that you needed an operator’s certificate to operate a speed camera. I also did not know that you needed permission to trap in a certain area too and that there are designated “trapping” areas.
My eyes were really open to the “business operations” of the way traffic fines are allocated by private contract companies and paid for by the department. There are a lot of motorist out there that just pay their fines without analyzing them, when really we should to check for discrepancies. Much to my disgust, I never knew traffic cops were allocated their areas to trap by the technicians or the private companies hired to process the fines. This episode was truly an eye opener for me.
I will not be so hasty and rush off to pay my fines as usual. Rather, I will now analyze my fine and check for irregularities. I have been a victim on numerous occasions by these corrupt traffic cops, having paid many times for being caught on a traffic offence. We need to flush out these corrupt officials.
I must agree with one of your guest on the show that said, and I quote: “The traffic department should not be a profit organization, but rather one that implements safety and better traffic control”.
Thanks a lot for a very well researched and very “informative” show.
I hate to be the “head of traffic this morning”.
Keep up the excellent work…..
I thank your organisation and Howard Dembovsky for all of the assistance he gave me in getting me out of cells at Johannesburg Central SAPS and then getting the case against me dropped after I was arrested by the JMPD for moving over on my scooter so a truck did not run me over and I touched the white line.
If I was convicted I would have been deported back to Congo where I fled from after my family was killed by troops. I am sure I would have died too.

When I was shot at, arrested and beaten up by EMPD thugs calling themselves metro police and then thrown into cells on Human Rights Day, I thought that I was going to die in police custody. What made things even worse was that I had not done anything that they said that I had done and tried to lie in a statement by saying that it was me who insulted them racially where in fact it was them that did it to me.
Before this happened to me, I did not believe that things were anywhere near as bad as they are and I would not have believed anyone who would have said to me that someone I had never met in my life would come to my rescue. When Howard Dembovsky got me released on bail and immediately referred me to an excellent criminal attorney, my eyes were opened.
On top of this he also referred me to IBF investigations, who after conducting a forensic investigation on my vehicle and the GPS in it, provided me with the evidence that proved that I had not failed to stop at a stop sign as had been alleged. They also provided evidence that the EMPD cops who shot at me did so when I had already come to a haut after they chased me and pinned me against an embankment and that they were definitely trying to kill me.
I and my family will be eternally grateful to you for what you have done for me.
JPSA AARTO Administrator Training
I spent some time in a training session with you regarding AARTO. I must say I really enjoyed the interactive way you present the information and the knowledge base you carry around this legislation is amazing. I learned more from your session than from all of the other 3 courses that I attended which were run by other companies.
I leant new ways of interpreting the laws which has made it a lot easier to complete my tasks as company representative. I understand the processes and procedures much better and this stands in me good stead in dealing with the bureaucracy and red tape that is called AARTO.
The forms and information supplied for use is extremely helpful in ensuring that the AARTO process is complete. And of course the lunch was magnificent.
It would be great knowledge injection to industry on a whole to ensure that they have people trained and aware by JPSA and yourself. The “after sales service/help” is also greatly appreciated.
It is comforting to know that there is a champion out there willing and able to help and assist should the need arise.
Once again thank you for the help.
