The Cape Town Central Community Policing Forum (CPF) has thanked two police officers for being “outstanding police officers”.

It gave the award for police officers of the month for May to Sergeant Ricardo Sebastian Laver and Constable Louis Carlos Teixeira.

CPF chairperson Nicola Jowell says: “They were nominated specifically for their actions that led to an arrest of a robbery suspect and the recovery of a fake gun. Their quick thinking, understanding of criminal behaviour and patterns, and their steadfast desire to ensure criminals are brought to justice resulted in this arrest. The stolen property was also recovered.

“Both members have a long list of quality arrests to their name due to their hard work. But perhaps more important is their dedication and service to this community which is evident to anyone they assist or engages them.”
