Top cops from the Tshwane North Cluster were honoured at a ceremony held at The Batter Boys Boutique Hotel in Montana recently.
Officers from 10 police stations that comprise the cluster – Pretoria North, Akasia, Ga-Rankuwa, Soshanguve, Mabopane, Rietgat, Loate, Dube, Temba and Hammanskraal – dropped their guns and bulletproof vests on Thursday evening for celebrations at the Boys, where they were honoured by cluster commander, Major General Hilda Mahajane.

Mohajane commended her police officers for their work and added that their achievements should motivate officers beyond the cluster to work harder to protect the communities they served.
“I would like to encourage every member in the SAPS to continue to combat crime and make sure criminals do not have a space to operate in our society,” said Mohajane.
She said the hard work that the men and women in blue continued to put in daily did not go unnoticed.
“Officers should be able to reflect on their hard work and be proud that they are delivering the goods.
More than 50 police officers – including support staff, detectives, crime prevention units, visible policing and crime intelligence members – from different departments at the station were rewarded.

Top cop, Captain Matthews Nkoadi from Ga-Rankuwa police station as well as Captain Stephen Maluleka were among those honoured.
All the cops who receivered awards were highly rated by the major general for their dedication and commitment in fighting and reducing the level of crime which was evident in the recent crime statistics released by the police minister.
During the ceremony, the general called up each officer and handed them a certificate which had their police number printed on and thanked them personally for their contribution to making communities safer for Tshwane North residents.
After the ceremony, officers enjoyed a light supper before getting into their vehicles and hitting the streets.
