The 2012 SAIDSA Reaction Man Competition was a great success and we congratulate SAIDSA, all the competitors and the winners in the various categories for their planning, participation and accomplishments.
Congratulations go out to ADT Pretoria who won both the overall Company and individual Reaction Officer awards.
Special congratulations go out to Star Rapid Response from Cape Town who also did very well at the competition. Officer M. Draper won 1st place overall in the Shooting Competition, Offier H. Maree won 1st place in both the Skipdpan and Gymkhana Driving Competitions and Officer D. Leeman won 3rd place in the Theory Exam.
