They are celebrating a win after months of challenges at the station.

The Mitchell’s Plain Police Station took home five awards at provincial police level.

The awards for the third quarter of 2017/18 were held at the end of February and police officers at the station were presented with the certificates on Tuesday last week, following a prayer service.

Police spokesperson, Captain Ian Williams says the awards were presented in this manner to allow the station to celebrate their joint contributions in achieving this success.

The station was recognised for the highest volume of arrests executed for the 17 community reported offences during the third quarter of 2017/18, highest volume of total arrests during the third quarter of 2017/18, second highest volume increase of cases to court for contact related crimes during the third quarter of 2017/18, highest volume of arrests executed for crimes dependant on police action during the third quarter of 2017/18 and second highest volume of overall reduction in crime in relation to 17 community reported crimes during the third quarter of 2017/18.
