The manner in which I was received by the acting Station Commander of Townhill SAPS, W/O P K Naidoo, on the morning of 12 April 2023, not only humbled me but caused me to eat humble pie.
In the past I have been very judgmental about the competency and service delivery of the SAPS in general and vociferously aired same.
However, the courtesy and assistance rendered by W/O Naidoo and his staff are commendable.
I found him to be very courteous, gentlemanly and eloquent in his interaction with me at his office while the staff who were on duty in the charge office (community service centre) at the time of my visit were competent and very capable.
I am proud of the men and women in blue of Townhill SAPS - I salute and commend you.
Please continue to protect and serve, remember the SAPS is an essential first line of defence for communities in the fight against crime and criminals in this country. We do live in perilous times.
