A concerted effort to reward great service recently saw four officers being recognised.

Hosted by the Mitchell’s Plain Pastors’ Forum, Western Cape Concerned Clergy and Mitchell’s Plain Community Policing Forum, four officers stationed at the Mitchell’s Plain Police Station received certificates of appreciation at the Beacon Valley Baptist Church on Tuesday. Senior police officials, including Major General Jeremy Veary, attended the event and hosted an informative talk on policing and community development through partnerships.
The Mitchell’s Plain CPF, thanks to the financial support of Ethel’s Place Youth Care Centre, honoured the four officers who have gone beyond the call of duty to serve the residents. Captain Harry Brickles, Captain Leon Jooste, Sergeant Courtney Smith and Constable Enrico Hoffman received certificates.

“These four officers were honoured by the CPF executive, The Mitchell’s Plain Pastors’ Forum and the Western Cape Concerned Clergy. Every month we will seek to announce an officer for going beyond the call of duty to serve the community of Mitchell’s Plain,” says Ashley Potts, representative of Ethel’s Place, the Mitchell’s Plain Pastors’ Forum and the CPF.

They are further calling on residents to nominate their favourite officers.

“Let us stand together to raise the cause of highlighting the good work done by reputable police officers,” says Potts.
