Top awards for police stations

2012-11-23 00:00

TWO Zululand station commanders have scooped provincial policing awards.

Eshowe cluster commander Brigadier Marie Wilson said if it wasn’t for the dedication and commitment to the community by Ekombe station commander Captain Mehlokazulu Zulu and Nkandla station commander Lieutenant Colonel Bongani Xulu, the awards would not have been possible.

The Ekombe station was awarded the Best Detective Station and Best Overall Station in KZN, while Nkandla was awarded the Best Crime Prevention Station at the KZN SAPS Awards held at Coastlands Convention Centre in Durban earlier this month.

Ekombe police station also received a brand new additional vehicle as an incentive for their achievement.

Both awards were in the Lieutenant Colonel category. Stations, according to their size, are split into categories. Larger city stations fall in the Brigadier category.

“This is a great achievement for both stations, considering there are 184 stations in the province with a large portion of them falling within the Lieutenant Colonel category,” said Wilson.
