There are heroes who walk among us every day, people to whom one could never be grateful enough for choosing a life of public service.

These men and women serve and protect the public with little recognition for the incredible job they do to help maintain a civilised culture.

The purpose of the annual West Rand Cluster Police Prestige Awards, which was held at Usambara Lodge on Wednesday, 5 September, was to give recognition to service excellence and hard work in line with the South African Police’s strategic objectives.
