IT is often said that if one produces good results, it is imperative for them to maintain those results. That is the pressure felt by the team at Margate Police Station after receiving awards during the annual KwaZulu-Natal Provincial Commissioner’s Excellence Awards held in Durban last week.

The station received awards in the category of Best Station and Best Task Team against 184 stations. Acting Station Commissioner Colonel Alan Grainger said that, they are proud of their team members, and the results are because of teamwork.

“It is also a pity that the Station Commissioner, Brigadier William Slabbert, can’t speak for himself because he is on leave; but he is the man behind these awards. He is forever encouraging everyone to do their best and emphasises teamwork,’’ he said.

He also highlighted Brigadier Slabbert’s excellent management skills and great, innovative ideas that keep the station “on its toes”.

Colonel David Nala, Branch Commander, head of detectives at the station said that although recognition is good, there is now more pressure on them to keep working even harder.

“Yes, we are doing well as a station but we are still working on things such as regaining the trust of the community, getting more community involvement, building reporting stations in places like Gcilima. We are a work in progress,” said Nala.

He added that there are local entities that help with the productivity of the station such as protection services, the traffic department, community policing forum, local businesses, and the community.
