Fish Hoek SAPS Team Building
On Wednesday, 8 August 2018, the Fish Hoek CPF were privileged to be involved with the Fish Hoek SAPS team building event. The event started off with a safety and visibility walk through the taxi rank, up on to main road, down to the beach, along Jagger’s Walk and then back past Dolphin Park, with our final destination being the sailing club where the team building braai was set to take place. The whole day was organised by an independent facilitator who is assisting the CPF with the SAPS recognition program.
This is the second visibility walk to take place in recent months and this one was focused on woman and child abuse as well as drug awareness. The members handed out flyers and we once again had a success with an individual being arrested for spray painting on the wall of the Garden of Remembrance. Had the SAPS members not been out on foot patrol, backed up by two vehicles then the person responsible would probably have been able to allude capture. Unfortunately for him he was quickly picked up by Warrant Officer Graham and one of the invited guests, dedicated night time patroller, Hendrick.
The day was all about building the spirit of the members as well as nurturing team building and communications. There were also some invited guests who joined for the safety walk and the activities after the walk. An invitation was extended to those individuals who over the years have worked closely with SAPS and included Neighbourhood Watch Coordinators, Law Enforcement Auxiliaries, patrollers, security companies and the CPF exco.
In no particular order the Fish Hoek South African Police Service and the Fish Hoek CPF would like to extend our sincere thanks and appreciation to the following people and organisations, without whom the day would not have been possible.
