Celebrating the end of 16 Days of Activism

The Kraaifontein police last week celebrated the end of the 16 Days of Activism by hosting people who have lost family members through crime.

Brigadier Gerda van Niekerk, station commander at the Kraaifontein Police Station, says they felt that so many families suffer when someone dies because of criminal activities. “This year we decided that we have to do something for those left behind. We needed to make them feel special and let them know that the police care about them. Everyone received a gift,” says Van Niekerk.

Van Niekerk says they hope to make it an annual event.

At the event members of the Kraaifontein police also received award certificates for good arrests and the fact that criminals had been sentenced to a total of 100 years combined for crimes committed during the year. Victim empowerment members of the Kraaifontein police were also rewarded with certificates of appreciation and a gift for volunteering and assisting the community of Kraaifontein.

Van Niekerk praised everyone who received awards and said she hopes it will inspire them to work even harder in the next year. “Being in the police is a thankless job so at least once a year we want to show our appreciation for the hard work that is being done,” said Van Niekerk.
