A R50,000 award has been offered for information that will result in the arrest and prosecution of the killers of Western Cape police officers, the provincial community safety department said on Sunday.

"No amount of money can make up for the loss of a life, and no amount of money will provide comfort to the family, friends and colleagues of the police officers killed in recent weeks," MEC Dan Plato said in a statement.

"But it is my hope that by offering a reward that someone, somewhere, will come forward and help the police catch the cowardly criminals responsible for these terrible acts."

Plato said the awarding of the money would be at the police's discretion. The Western Cape police supported the department's initiative.

Three policemen had been killed in Cape Town since last Sunday.
