The South African Police Service (SAPS) approved 27 January as National Police Day in 2005. According to the South African Government, the day is marked to remember the sacrifices that the men and women in blue have made and continue to make as they provide safety for all who live in Mzansi.
Check out some online users' comments on the tweet:
“Many are called few are chosen. We thank you for protecting us. Happy national police day.”
“Hee ndaa! I like the way you are handling the negativity under this tweet. It is understandable that we are not satisfied with the way services are rendered at SAPS. Hopefully you and other SAPS members seeing this take a serious note of these grievances. Happy Police Day.”
“Happy National Police Day Sir.”
Engaged couple saved by kindness of 2 cops after pothole strikes while on road trip
Willie Labuschagne was travelling with his fiancée Shani Dreyer and when they reached 40 kilometres out of Witbank, they hit a huge pothole which resulted in both the left front and back tires bursting.
“Two minutes after we pulled over a police van with these two great officers stopped to assist us. Officers Evans and Linda took both our flat wheels and rims and went to the nearest place that was able to assist with some tires and after a while they came back, and we put back the wheels and were on our way again.”
