A busy year ahead!!!

It’s my pleasure to welcome each and every one of you back to work. We hope 2013 will be a great year for you and your families. For us, it’s another opportunity to work hard in pursuing and achieving our strategic and objective goals.

Last year we welcomed new Board members and a new executive manager, and added five new employees to the staff contingent of the SABFS. We also saw a number of developments within the Board, including, for the first time, formal training courses accredited by the South African Qualifications Authority and Safety and Security SETA – a big step forward in professionalising the sector.

The sheriffs’ profession received an enormous boost in capacity last year when the Minister of Justice and Constitutional Development Jeff Radebe appointed 121 sheriffs countrywide. We also welcomed the announcement of 130 vacant posts to be filled this year, and wish all applicants the best of luck.

Improving the public perception of the sheriffs’ profession is one of our major priorities, and to this end we’re going to embark on a number of outreach programmes and media campaigns. We will, in the meantime, continue exercising oversight of the sheriffs’ profession by ensuring that their duties and responsibilities are completed in the prescribed manner that upholds the dignity of all the people we serve.

I take this opportunity to thank all of you, current and retired sheriffs, for giving so freely and abundantly of yourselves to the Board and the profession for many years. This year is going to be a busy one for us. Let us all work hand in hand to improve our services and change the perception of sheriffs in the eyes of the public.
