The Bedfordview SAPS boardroom project kicked off on 7 July 2020 and was completed in time for the launch, which took place on Mandela Day, 18 July 2020. The project saw the Bedfordview Community Policing Forum (BCPF), together with members of the South African Police Services (SAPS) and their valued sponsors, convert an old building at the Bedfordview Police Station into a new boardroom facility.
The venue will be aptly known as the Mandela Boardroom and will be used by both SAPS and the BCPF. Essential to the success of the project has been the input and support of Col. Justus Geustyn, Station Commander of Bedfordview Police Station, together with the advice and assistance of Captain Andre De Jager and Captain Karl Nimb.
The BCPF Exco team would like to thank Blue Hawk Tactical for sponsoring a 50″ UHD Smart TV for the SAPS Mandela Boardroom. ‘Your support and contribution to the Bedfordview community is much appreciated,’ they stated.
Residents Action Group (RAG) Bedfordview also sponsored an alarm together with monthly monitoring for the SAPS Mandela Boardroom. ‘Your ongoing efforts to ensure the safety of our community is truly appreciated,’ said BCPF Exco Team.
They also thanked Anita’s Interiors for sponsoring window blinds for the boardroom. They received a number of donations over the weekend, which will greatly assist in finishing the boardroom, including:
– Microwave (Baigent Family).
– Flipchart (Hylton Marks).
– Whiteboard (Clodagh de Paxaio).
– Crockery and Cutlery (Bedfordview Dental Care).
– First Aid Box and Contents (Chris Morris)
– Helix First Aid and Safety Training).
– Boardroom Table (Esme Smit)
Items that are still required to complete the facility include: boardroom chairs, media unit and a laptop. Please contact Alison on firstname.lastname@example.org or Tyrone on email@example.com should you be in a position to assist.
