As supporters of their objectives and promoters of its goals, IBF Investigations has committed a lot of time and effort to the enhancement and improvement of the South African Police Service (SAPS). In 2005, we provided FREE support in the form of a special project in support of the efforts of Arrive Alive under the banner of "Project A.C.C.I.D.E.N.T.," an acronym for Advanced Critical Crash Investigation through the Designation of- and Education by Non-government Technology partners. Under this project, we provided free at-scene investigation, reconstruction and training to police and traffic officers. Our contribution was very well received, as the following letter from the commander of the Table Bay Police Station will show:
"On 14 May 2005, a vehicle reversed into the sea at G-berth Table Bay Harbour.
Mr. Stan Bezuidenhout and his colleagues arrived on the scene and informed Supt. R van der Toorn and Capt KAA Blake that they were on the scene in order to carry out a Technical Investigation and therefore, a full report would be compiled on their respective findings.
During the period that Mr. Bezuidenhout and his team spent on the accident scene, they were most professional, and in no way were the SAPS Members hampered in their duties. On the contrary, there was a great co-operation between the SAPS and the investigation team led by Mr. Bezuidenhout.
Within a few days, Mr. Bezuidenhout presented Capt. R Jackson : Commander CID, with a comprehensive report on the findings of the accident. Included in this report were numerous colour photographs and a CD was also enclosed which was highly informative and helpful to all members who assisted at this accident.
Captain Jackson and the Management of Table Bay Harbour SAPS were extremely impressed with the detail and fully encompassing report on the accident.
This report indicates that Mr. Bezuidenhot and his team are a group of highly competent and Professional Investigators and their services can be recommended to asssit both the Government and the Privae Institutions in any investigation regarding accidents."
These sentiments are also supported by a letter from the Station commissioner of Table View SAPS, which reads:
"We would like to make use of this opportunity to thank you for your professional service at accident scenes and the excellence after accident investigation. It is therefore a great honor to work with you in this regard."
