The Rondebosch Community Improvement District (RCID) last week honoured seven officers based at Rondebosch police station who have each served SAPS for 30 years – or close to 30 years.

The RCID and the Rondebosch Community Police forum (CPF) hosted Rondebosch SAPS at a cocktail event at the Silwood Cookery School in Rondebosch.

Three of them – Detective Warrant Officer Alan Dudley Moore, Warrant Officer Eden Bruniers and Warrant Officer Abraham Goliath – each have 30 years of service while Warrant Officer Lyndon Sisam has been at the station for 28 years.

RCID manager, Shirley Aldum, said: “RCID felt this was an achievement to be recognised. We, as a Rondebosch community are privileged and proud to have seven members at our station with 30 years’ experience and commitment serving at our police station and we also want to acknowledge the role these officers’ wives have played over the past 30 years and show our appreciation to them for their commitment.”

Lieutenant Colonel Barbara Breedt said they felt really honoured that the community appreciated them.
