FOUR members from Port Shepstone SAPS received praise for the role they played in fighting crime in the cluster while they were part of a task team. Ugu cluster commander, Major-General Sethenya Agnes Nxamagele, handed over the commendation certificates to the four members - Warrant Officer Patrick Gosling, Constable Raphael Smithwick, Constable Lee Frost and Constable Mzakwe Makana for their outstanding performance. She also acknowledged their hard work which made an impact on crime in the cluster at the time they were part of the task team and for the sterling example they are to other SAPS members. While still in command of Ugu cluster, the previous cluster commander, Major-General Thembi Ndlovu, sent an application to the provincial commissioner’s office and recommended that the four members be recognised.The members who are attached to Port Shepstone Public Order Policing unit mainly focused on tracing wanted suspects, unlicensed firearms and ammunition, stolen property and drugs. As a result of their dedicated approach to fighting crime, and working long hours, they made numerous arrests and recovered many firearms, ammunition, stolen property and drugs. They also assisted detectives with the tracing of wanted suspects in priority crimes such as murder, house robbery, rape and house breaking. The acting provincial commissioner of KZN, Major General Bhekinkosi Langa, then issued commendation certificates to the four members, praising them for their outstanding daily success rate and their diligence and perseverance in fighting crime. - Supplied.
