Capt Aubrey Moopeloa, the corporate Communication Officer of Evaton SAPS, retired from the South African Police Service on 30 June 2020 after 32 years' service as a dedicated and loyal member. He joined the police on 10 March 1988 after he was recruited at Sebokeng Police Station, affectionately known as Houtkop.

On 30 June 1988, he proceeded to Hammanskraal SAP College for further police training as a student. After successfully completing his training, he emerged as a constable on 23 November 1988 and was transferred to Krugersdorp Divisional office (Chamdor) Riot Unit 5.

Two years, later in 1990, he was transferred to Vanderbijlpark Riot Unit 23. In April 1991, he was transferred to Sharpeville where he spent 21 years both as an ordinary policeman and as the Sharpeville spokesperson.

On 18 June 2012, Capt Aubrey Moopeloa reported at Evaton SAPS as a new police spokesperson, a position which he held until his retirement. He noted that it has been a very good experience to work with the law-abiding citizens in the community and against criminals.

“The love of the community you serve at heart is the power behind the willingness. It has always been my interest to serve the community with dignity and respect and to defend the policy of the organisation I love so much. I will miss the blue uniform, the community I served for so long, my colleagues, the media industry and volunteers of the CPF structures I loved so much.”

“Thanks to my relatives, my family and everyone, especially my wife who supported me through thick and thin. God bless the management of Evaton police and the South African Police Service in general.”

All the best to Capt Moopeloa.

Brig H P Bischoff
Station Commander: Evaton SAPS
