SAPS pouring rain

Two South African Police officers were pictured helping a mom and her two kids trapped on the roadside in the pouring rain.


A police officer’s job is to serve and protect the neighbourhoods within their jurisdiction. So when officers do the best at their jobs, we can’t help but celebrate their good work.

We understand many will say, “but this what they are paid for” as we have seen time and time again on social media but the fact is, print and social media thrive on sharing stories of corrupt cops taking bribes and being involved in the crimes they are meant to prevent. So we are happy to share these stories to balance everything out.

Two officers were recently spotted on the side of the road helping a mom and her two kids in the pouring rain. Her tyre had burst and they made sure to assist her so she could get her children home safely.

Twitter users have praised the cops for their efforts.

“Wow this is great stuff guys… you rock…” – Noeleen Taylor

“A heartfelt thank you to these two members of SAPS. You do SAPS proud gentlemen!” – Elizabeth (Rosie)

We thank these officers for taking the time to help this mother and her children.
