The Hendrina SAPS hosted an event to honour and recognise the newly appointed Junior Deputy Provincial Commissioner (Mpumalanga), Ms Nqobile Nosipho Skhosana on Wednesday the 8th of June 2022. The event was held at Alex Benjamin Secondary School where the Deputy Junior Provincial Commissioner is a learner.

Acting Station Commander Captain JJ Mahlangu handed over the certificate of appointment in recognition of the appointment. In attendance was the Acting Station Commander Capt JJ Mahlangu, WO RG Phasha (MIC), WO BB Mnguni (Sector Commander: Sector 1), Sgt PY Shabangu (Social Crime Prevention & Domestic Violence) and stakeholders including the Steve Tshwete Local Municipality Traffic Department, The Circuit Manager, Mr Makhuse representing the Department of Education as well as the Social worker from Senzokuhle Advice Centre Mr VCV Malala.

The event also observed the Child Protection week which ran from the 29th of May to the 4th of June 2022. The event was an astounding success owing to the collaborative efforts of the Social Crime Prevention Office, the Sector Commanders as well as Senzokuhle Advice Centre which is funded by the Department of Social Development. We continue to enjoy progressive stakeholder relationship with the different institutions and organizations within our policing precinct including the Traffic Department.

The SAPS is empowered and tasked by Section 205 of the Constitution of The Republic of South Africa to Protect the rights of all inhabitants of South Africa and Chapter 2 of the Constitution guarantees the Rights of Children as such we are committed to work with our sister departments, particularly the Department of Social Development (DSD) and NPO they fund in raising awareness on matters affecting children with the understanding that DSD is the custodian of the Children’s Act.
