On Friday 22 July, SAPS Johannesburg Central Cluster held the fifth annual Excellence Awards ceremony in honour of all the police officers who devote their lives to making the City of Johannesburg a safer environment.
With Edcon being the biggest sponsor of this initiative, this year the event was held at the Edcon Retail Academy in Ormonde. Edcon Group Transformation Executive, Elelwani Phahlana and SAPS Johannesburg Central Cluster Commander in Chief, Major General RGD Rajin were present at the event to present the awards to all the winners that night.
The categories that the honorary police were nominated in include Disabled Employee of the Year, Detective Employee of the Year, Administration Employee of the Year, CI Employee of the Year, Vispol Employee of the Year, Best Male and Female Employee of the Year and Best Johannesburg Police Station of the Year.
While we are often quick to criticise our police officers, we need to keep in mind that good work is definitely being done on a daily basis.
