Western Cape Provicial Commissioner Mzwndile Petros awarded two Camps Bay Police members with a Certificate of Commendation issued by the National Police Commissioner for the role they played in arresting and convicting the suspects in the murder cases of Brett Goldin and Richard Bloom.
“Together with the certificate, Detective Stephen, Inspector Fourie and Constable Samkelo Mapolisa received a substantial monetary reward as a token of appreciation for their commitment and dedication towards SAPS and the communities which the serve,” says Police spokesperson Andre Traut.
Traut elaborated that a fourth member Constable Seanego who had to be awarded did not receive his award as he was transferred to the Eastern Cape. He will be rewarded in due course.
