I have had the pleasure of working closely with LEO Kellerman during this time and have found him to be a disciplined motivated young man fully committed to fighting crime and enforcing the Municipal By Laws of City of Cape Town.
He has a passion for his job often going far beyond the call of duty. This is clearly evident in his work ethic as well as in his private life. He is a caring, compassionate young man who cares deeply about people and has a vision to create a better life for all. He has a high level of self-awareness, maturity and emotional intelligence.
