An educational display was hosted by members from the Uitenhage Local Criminal Record Centre (LCRC) and the Uitenhage K9 Unit for pre-school learners from the Rainbow Nursery School in Uitenhage.

WO Jacques Wasserman and WO Zakes Vulani, both forensic experts, explained and demonstrated to the learners how unique each person’s fingerprints are and how SAPS can lift fingerprints from any crime scene, even a plastic 2L bottle.

Each learner received his/her handprint with his/her name on it as a keepsake.

SAPS National Search and Rescue K9 Winners, WO Jaco Potgieter and his four-legged partner, Ben, visited the learners and interacted with them. The learners had the opportunity to touch Ben and even play ball with him.

In closing, WO Jacques Adlem and Sgt Melisa Potgieter, from Uitenhage K9, ensured that the “crook” was apprehended by Lenox, who could not wait to tackle the “crook”.

Bowie – The Super dog – taught the learners the police emergency 10111 number and requested them to phone the police when in need of police assistance.
