Award medals to members who qualify for the criteria.

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

Under The South African Police act 68 of 1995 , the Minister for Law and order instituted a new series of medals, orders and Decorations for members of not only the South African Police , but Metropolitan Police forces as well.

The goverment gazette no:30523 date 04 December 2007 , supported by The Minister and approved by the State President. Lists the Medals and Criteria for issuing such medals to qualifying Metropolitan Police Officers. 

To this date Etekweni Metropolitan Police have not made any effort to implement these medals and decorations , even though hundreds of officer qualify, and sadly some have left police service,or passed away, without the recognition of service to members or their families,  which these orders and decorations would bring.

Policing in South Africa is rarely appreciated and we urge the Management of Etekweni Municipal Police to recognise the hard work of its officers and ensure the medals which members are entitled to are implemented.
