CPF hails Virginia police’s work

2015-06-10 06:02

THE Virginia Community Policing Forum’s (CPF) executive committee presented 116 certificates of appreciation to members of the Virginia police at a function held at the Harvinia Club in Virginia on Wednesday (20/05).

The gesture was aimed at recognising the police’s hard work in combating crime.

According to Moeder Ndaba, the Virginia CPF’s chairperson, crime was on the decrease in Virginia. She attributed this to the community working ­together with members of the police.

She said the Virginia CPF committee appreciated the sacrifice, the good work and the selflessness shown by the police.

“We do this because you are not perfect, but as human beings you are always striving for excellence. We must learn to see the good side of a person and not concentrate on the darker side. Let’s learn to applaud the good work a person has done before pointing out shortcomings,” said Ndaba.

According to Col Cynthia Molale, station commander of the Virginia Police Station, acknowledgement of the good work done by members of the police in Virginia was a surprise.

“The CPF members took it upon themselves to celebrate the commitment, dedication and hard work displayed by our members. This might be the first and the last occasion in our careers, as we do not know what tomorrow will bring,” said Molale

How much food do you need to concentrate?

We have been taught that we need three meals a day in order to make it through the day and while most of us indulge in more than our fair share there is a large portion of South Africans who are living off barely enough to sustain them.
