THE South African Police Service (SAPS) in the Nelson Mandela Metro hosted the eighth annual Police Appreciation Day service on November 25 at the Victory Ministries International church.

The community came in large numbers to show their gratitude to all in uniform, which included the SAPS, Metro Police, the Fire Department, the army and nurses in the metro.

The purpose of this event was to strengthen the interaction between all officials with the community and to re-enforce the awareness of the SAPS and their services to the community. This allowed the community to express their appreciation and the services rendered in the community.

Major General Dawie Rabie expressed his humble gratitude to the community and highlighted the need for the community to stand together.

“We are meeting here today at a time when unity and peace is so desperately needed in our society. I would like express my warmest and heartfelt gratitude to the community of Victory Ministries International for praying for us,” Rabie said.

One of the community members, Mandisa Mzizi, said that they appreciated all the efforts by law enforcement to keep them safe.

“We are here today to thank them and as my poster says, they are valuable to us,” Mzizi said.

As the 16 Days of Activism against gender-based violence in the country has been launched, the SAPS saluted the courageous women and children who, despite all criticism and intimidation, decided to report such incidents.

Rabie added, “The moral fibre in the society in which we live, has disintegrated and is on the verge of extinction if the community do not stand up and raise their voices. We thank the community for the part they play.”
