Rondebosch police officers are thankful for the recognition they received for their long-term service in the community at Silwood Cookery School on Friday 8 June.

Each of the seven officers reportedly has a record of 30 years of service at the station.

They received awards of appreciation from the Rondebosch Improvement District on Wednesday 8 June.

These awards, presented in partnership with the community policing forum, were a sign of appreciation for their loyalty and the role the officers play in the community.

One of the recipients was the Rondebosch Police Station spokesperson, Warrant Officer Lyndon Sisam. “I was pleased and humbled to be honoured by both the RCID and CPF. It felt very special that the community we served thought it good to acknowledge our long service and our dedication to the Rondebosch community. We are dedicated in giving the community excellent service for years and will continue to do so,” says Sisam.

Sisam attributes their success to their “great partnership” with the community.

Shirley Aldum, RCID manager, says they felt it was important to recognise the officers for their achievements. “We as the Rondebosch community are privileged and proud to have members at our station with 30 years’ experience and commitment serving at our police station.”

Captain Barbara Breedt, the station commander, congratulated the officers on their good work. She says they are honoured by the gesture as it shows that the community sees and appreciates their efforts.
