SAPS Tongaat Warrant Officer Manisha Maharaj Marie and Constable Lance Naidoo visited Sandfields Primary on October 13 to educate pupils about careers in the South African Police Service and the importance of choice.
The meaning of “career” was explained to the Grade 7 pupils.

SAPS Tongaat attended a school career day and spoke to pupils who are interested in becoming police officers in the future.

The pupils were informed that every officer should have the highest integrity, character and be a respected member of the community.

Duties of a police official were highlighted - from answering disturbance calls, to responding to accidents and incidents, solving crimes, and protecting the community.

Tongaat SAPS spokesperson Captain Patrick Ngwane said: “The SAPS also advised pupils that law enforcement officials are always expected to perform a vital service for the good of society.”

Pupils were also taught about the qualities and characteristics a person should possess to become a police officer.

“The pupils were further informed that a police officer should be a law-abiding citizen and should have no criminal record,” Ngwane said.

Constable Lance also shared his experiences in the SAPS with pupils.

“Nothing is impossible if you believe [in yourself] and work hard.” Pupils also looked at the equipment used by the police. - Supplied.
