Maj-Gen Tertius Geldenhuys (7 May 1955 to 14 April 2020)

The South African Police Service mourns the tragic loss of Maj-Gen Tertius Geldenhuys who passed away on 14 April 2020.

Tertius was born in 1955 and matriculated at the Brits High School in 1972. He officially joined the South African Police Force in 1977. However, unofficially he "joined" the police much earlier in his life. His father, who was a station commander, was unaware that the young Tertius would slip out of his bedroom at night to conduct patrol duties with police officials. He was proud to report that he solved his first murder during one of these "undercover" operations. He had discovered the murder weapon, a bicycle spike, at the crime scene and noticed the suspect fleeing on foot from the scene. He alerted the members on duty and the suspect was arrested. The knowledge and experience that he gained even during those early years, gave him a rare understanding and insight into the mindset of police members and the challenges that they face in the execution of their duties.
