The Star Late Edition - - NEWS -

A TO­TAL of 874 cases have been reg­is­tered with the SA Po­lice Ser­vice and the Na­tional Prose­cut­ing Author­ity.

And 813 ar­rests were reg­is­tered, with 274 suc­cess­ful con­vic­tions hav­ing been se­cured.

Nine cases of un­eth­i­cal be­hav­iour by man­age­ment have been recorded, six of which are in progress, while three of them have been fi­nalised.

Nine cases re­lat­ing to sup­ply chain man­age­ment have been recorded, six of which have been fi­nalised, while one is still un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

Thir­teen staff mem­bers have been dis­missed so far. A syn­di­cate on ca­ble theft was bust last year and a se­nior of­fi­cial in City Power was ar­rested. An in­ves­ti­ga­tion of fraud by in­ter­nal and ex­ter­nal par­ties op­er­at­ing a syn­di­cate in the me­ter­ing en­vi­ron­ment is also yield­ing re­sults, with the cur­rent me­ter read­ing rate sit­ting at 89%.

The ef­forts have re­sulted in ad­dress­ing abuse of over­time, and travel and cell­phone al­lowances.
