ON Monday, Colonel Praga Naicker officially handed over the reins of the Scottburgh Police Station to the new station commander, Colonel Ralph Ruiters, after serving in that position for 18 years.

Colonel Naicker began his career with SAPS at Umzinto in 1983 and worked his way up through the ranks until he became a commissioned officer.

He served as station commander in Umzinto from 1993 until 1999 and was transferred to Scottburgh Police Station as station commander with the rank of Lieutenant-Colonel. He recently applied for the position of Vispol Head in the Port Shepstone SAPS and was appointed in that post on November 1 with the rank of colonel.

“I have served to the best of my ability and enjoyed a great working relationship with the communities that fell within the Scottburgh SAPS policing precincts.

“I will miss the people I have worked closely with over the years, especially the officers and staff at the Scottburgh SAPS, but I had to take this step to further my career in the service,” said Naicker.

He thanked the officers and staff of the Scottburgh SAPS and the community policing forums, businesses and government departments. - Supplied.
