UCT has rewarded officers of Campus Protection Services (CPS) for going the extra mile to keep staff and students safe, contributing to the drop in criminal activities on campus over the past five years.

"It is heart-warming to tell parents that students, who are our most important clients, are safe," said John Critien, executive director of Properties and Services. At a thanksgiving ceremony on 8 April, CPS officers were presented with cash and vouchers as tokens of appreciation.

The recipients were crime prevention officer Xolisa Kula and section leaders Nicholas Ndzotho and Anthony Smith for excellent arrests, as well as officers Soyiso Nyembesi, Deon Mgxaji, Morney Speelman and Eric Mbiza for their quick response to a fire at Woolsack residence.
