sapsNews24 reports that wreaths were laid on Sunday as the Department of Police held its annual commemoration day at its memorial site at the Union Buildings in Pretoria.  

The names of 29 officers who died in the line of duty between 1 April 2017 and 31 March 2018 were added to the wall of remembrance, witnessed by family and loved ones of the murdered members.  Police minister Bheki Cele said:  "We call on all communities and society to work with the police to fight the scourge of police killings.  Police members are a national asset and they need to be protected by all of us.  One police killing is one to many.”  Acting national police commissioner Lieutenant General Lebeoana Tsumane stated:  “Throughout September, which has been declared National Police Safety Month, we will continue to increase safety awareness among our members in order to highlight measures to reduce attacks, vehicle accidents and the murder of our police officials.”  The slain officers’ children were offered support in terms of education, training and development through the SA Police Education Trust Fund.
