A SUCCESSFUL detective unit requires competent officers with strong credentials coupled with good investigative skills to crack serious cases like murder, hijackings, house robberies and the like.

These are traits that are offered by Detective Warrant Officer Kelvin Moodley from Verulam SAPS, who scooped a monetary reward and certificate of appreciation at the recent Provincial Commissioner’s Excellence Awards KZN 2018/19 held at Coastlands Hotel for his good work in the detective branch.

Moodley was recognised and appreciated for his hard work, dedication, and commitment in terms of investigating serious crimes, arresting suspects, and securing good convictions.

Police spokesperson in Verulam Captain Henry Kisten said: “Moodley excelled in the performance of his duties. The station commander Brigadier Victor Dludla commended and applauded the member for being honoured at a provincial level and stated that the member did the station proud.”

Moodley told the Coastal Weekly that he has been working in the police force for the past 26 years.

“It feels good to be appreciated by the organisation we work for, for the good work that we are doing. It also gives satisfaction when justice is done and the victims get closure.”

In talking to the Weekly, Moodley also said: “I would also like to thank my family for being supportive.

“I work long hours investigating cases over the weekend, and my family has always been supportive of me.

“Inspiration also comes from the public as well, when the victims get closure after the investigation.

“We are proud that the organisation also recognises the good work that we are doing for the community,” he ended.
