Po­lice Awards and call for brav­ery

Grocott's Mail - - NEWS - STAFF RE­PORTER

Ma­jor Gen­eral Mki, the Deputy Pro­vin­cial Com­mis­sioner for Man­age­ment In­ter­ven­tion in the Eastern Cape, pre­sented over 130 medals to of­fi­cers and mem­bers from the Port Al­fred Clus­ter. The medals in­cluded 10, 20 and 30 loyal ser­vice medals as well as the com­mem­o­ra­tion and 2010 Soc­cer World Cup medal. The guard of hon­our stood in the pelt­ing rain whilst the South African Po­lice Ser­vice Code of Con­duct was read. De­spite the un­pre­dictable weather, mem­bers re­ceived their medals with the ap­plause of the guests in sup­port

Quot­ing au­thor Mark Man­son, Ma­jor Gen­eral Mki an­nounced “"Brav­ery is not the ab­sence of fear, brav­ery is feel­ing the fear, the doubt, the in­se­cu­rity, and de­cid­ing that some­thing else is more im­por­tant.”

“It is there­fore im­por­tant to know that more of­ten than not, be­ing brave means do­ing it scared. I en­cour­age you to be bold enough to use your voice, brave enough to lis­ten to your heart and strong enough to con­tinue to com­mit your­self to the safety and se­cu­rity of all cit­i­zens.”
