10/10 for our local SAPS this past week

It has been a good week for SAPS members in our valley. Whilst they may from time to time be short staffed or have issues with vehicle logistics, in the main most of them still do their best and are committed police officers, committed to serving our community. They have a group of active SAPS Reservists who assist them as force multipliers, and are backed up by various security companies, Law Enforcement, both full time and volunteers, as well as of course our valley NW volunteer patrollers.
