SAIS October luncheon

January 2009 News & Events

Another successful South African Institute of Security luncheon was held at J.P. Morgan in Johannesburg on Friday, 17 October.

The guest speaker was Advocate Juan Kotze who gave a thought-provoking talk on victims of crime. He raised the issues of the effective police action in the case of serious crime and the need for efficient collection of evidence.

Kotze emphasised that even though the SAPS may be overworked, under-resourced, under-skilled and under-staffed, it is still the only body empowered to collect evidence to present to the prosecuting authorities. Instead of complaining about the service received, which will not accomplish anything, we should all make the effort to get involved in a way that will support and make it easier for the SAPS to do its job. From a business perspective, sponsoring the creation of modern facilities and equipping stations with the tools required could be an option.

The chairman of the Institute, Terry Scallan presented the Institute Crystal Award to a past chairman, Ron Crawford-Nutt (1984 to 1988), a life membership certificate to Roy Gardener and a Crystal Award. Other certificates awarded were Associate Member to Graham Slade and Graduate Member to Mike Verster.

The Institute year-end function and traditional Christmas lunch will be held at J.P. Morgan on Friday, 28 November. The guest speaker will be Omar Jasho from Kenya and the topic will be Aviation Security.
