Officers of Claremont police station are proud to say that their carols by candlelight event was a huge success. They are grateful to the community of Claremont for making it happen.

The officers were really moved by the attendance and they way the people who attended carried themselves. They would like to thank everyone for making the event on Wednesday last week a success.

The carols were followed by a formal address station commander Elonium Joseph at the Claremont civic centre.

The police say they are grateful for the partnership they have with their community. The police organised the event as a way of thanking the community as well as to strengthen the already existing relationship.

It was a beautiful evening as the officers and the community came together to relax as the year comes to an end.

The event also formed part of the police’s activities for their 16 Days of Activism campaign.

Sergeant Lindile Dubeni, Claremont police spokesperson, says it was an awesome event.

“We also lit candles in remembrance of those who have suffered or died by the hand of abuse. We wanted to say to them we are together in this; come and be with us as we remember the victims of abuse. We haven’t forgotten about them and we as the police will be doing all we can to follow up on their cases – even more so during this 16 Days of Activism campaign.”

Dubeni adds that everything went well and the attendance was exceptional.

“The entertainment was on point; people just had a good time. We are really happy about the turnout and the fact that the people really behaved themselves. This is one of the traits of the people of Claremont. They always have order and they behave properly, so everyone had a really good time,” he says.

Dubeni adds that the event was used to thank the community as well for working with the police.

“The event was also to strengthen the relationship we have with the community. It was also on our part to bring ourselves even closer to the community so that we can work together more effectively. We strongly believe in community partnership and that has been shown. We just want to cement it and make sure we go together forward strongly,” he says.
