Newly promoted Honeydew police officer, Captain Karen Jacobs, has vowed to continue working closely with the community in a bid address crime, just as she has done for many years as a Warrant Officer.
“My goal is to work closely with the community of Honeydew and other stakeholders within the Honeydew precinct to address crime and make Honeydew a safe place for everyone,” said Jacobs, who became active as Captain from 1 November.
This well-respected and much-loved officer has served in many departments since joining Honeydew Police Station in 1994.
“I have performed duties as a client service member, detective service, social crime prevention, visible policing and sector policing,” she explained.
When asked how she felt about the promotion, Jacobs said, “I feel very privileged, thankful and positive regarding my current post, which brings with it more responsibilities, and I’m ready to make a difference.”
Following the announcement of her new rank, Jacobs has received tons of love and messages of support from her colleagues and community members.
“Captain Jacobs is truly an exemplary police representative. She is approachable, trustworthy and incredibly dedicated to her work. We are very privileged to have her as our Honeydew Sector 3 Police manager and at the Honeydew Station as a whole. Well done, and congratulations on your promotion, Captain Jacobs, it couldn’t have happened to a more deserving person,” said Carolyn Lanzillotti, the chairperson of the Honeydew Sector 3 CPF.
