Sea Point’s top safety officers were honoured at an award ceremony held by the Sea Point Improvement District on ­Wednesday.

Among the staff members who were recognised for providing exceptional service at the ceremony at the New Kings Hotel were local police officers, staff providing cleaning services in the area, rent-a-cops funded by the improvement district and field worker Natalie Coetzee.

Long service awards were also handed out. Wandile Hlathi was awarded as Officer of the Year.

Robbie Roberts, the City of Cape Town’s policing and enforcement services director, spoke at the event. He commended the improvement district for its fight against crime.

“It’s as dangerous in Sea Point as it is in Nyanga, Athlone, Kraaifontein or Vygieskraal. But to fight crime, we can’t do it alone,” he said.

Improvement district chief operations officer Heather Tager added that the dedication of safety officers had resulted in a drop in crime in the area.

Jacques Weber, the improvement district’s licence plate recognition (LPR) camera system project manager, thanked the officers for their efforts, highlighting that the effectiveness of the system was thanks to the officers’ dedication.
