Five new police recruits have started working at the Grassy Park station. Nadeemah Bester, Taylia Vraagom, Keagan Jacobs, Theodore Henry and Godwin Jeggels were appointed at the station at the end of September.

Grassy Park police spokesperson Warrant Officer Wynita Kleinsmith says the new recruits will enhance the manpower at the station.

“In recent months we had members leave the station. This left us with fewer resources but now we have the five new student officers, which will definitely assist with combating crime,” Kleinsmith says.

The recruits are students who are currently completing their on-duty training at the station. After six months of practical training they will complete their education at the police college before they return to the station as constables.

“We are very happy to have them on board because one can see they have a passion for the service. This ensures that, as a station, we are also delivering better service to our community,” Kleinsmith adds.

The detectives at the police station have also received a new head. Major Etienne van Ede was previously stationed at Pinelands police station.

He has been in the police service for 35 years and is “excited to accept the challenge at the station”.

“Our major has an open-door policy and will be heading the detective branch.

“We are very excited about our new members and believe the community will benefit best from the added manpower,” Kleinsmith says
