Call for police wives to support their spouses

Salaseini Moceiwai
Friday, August 08, 2014

LOUISE Groenewald, the wife of the Commissioner of Police, yesterday encouraged police wives in Seaqaqa, Macuata, to make it their business to support their husbands and their work.

In sharing her experience, Mrs Groenewald said police wives were the backbone of the law enforcement organisation.

"I have been a police wife for more than 42 years and the journey has not been easy," she said.

"Whatever the circumstances may be, always have that heart to support your spouse and the work they do. It's not easy being a police officer's wife, it has its ups and downs but we just have to have faith in ourselves.

"Sometimes, they might come home tired or late and we have to be there for them. It's not an easy road but in order to help them do well in their line of work, we have to be by their sides."
