POLICE visibility on the South Coast has been beefed up after 20 new police recruits from the Western Cape were sent to the area for training.

The recruits will be undergoing field training at Port Shepstone police station for the next six months, before returning to the Phillipi and Oudtshoorn police training institutions in the Western Cape. They have already completed 10 months of training and will now be under the supervision of Lieutenant Colonel Roger Seevnarain and Warrant Officer Varshni Naidoo.

The students will gain experience at the Port Shepstone police station community service centre, after which they will be stationed at Mehlomnyama and St Faiths police stations, working under mentors for another eight months.

The students will then return to their respective training institutions, where they will graduate after a further two months.

Police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Zandra Wiid said the student officers were highly disciplined and professional, and motivated to make a success of their future careers.

Port Shepstone cluster commander Major General Frank Holloway welcomed the “new blood” in the area.
