Gift Policy – Vredekloof CID

The Vredekloof CID‘s Gift Policy is actually a No-Gift Policy and read as follows:

  • No employee, including the employees of any Contractor to the VCID,  may request, solicit or accept any reward, gift or favor for:

o   The exercise of any power or the performance of any duty;

o   Disclosing any privileged or confidential information; or

o   Doing or not doing anything within that staff member’s powers or duties

  • No gifts of any kind, no matter the value, will be accepted by any employee, at any time, on or off the work premises.
  • Employees are required to professionally inform residents and others of this no-gift policy, and the reasons the VCID has adopted the policy.
  • A gift can inter alia be, but not limited to, cash, food, beverages, cloths, a “Christmas box”, furniture, appliances (in working condition or not), etc.
  • The only exempted item will be “drinking water”, especially during the hot summer months.
  • The only exception will be for food,

o   delivered at the Control Room

o   which can be divided, at least between all those employees on duty during that shift

  • All other “gifts” that cannot be shared or divided amongst all, must be auctioned to all the other employees. The proceeds will go towards a “staff entertainment” fund that can be utilized at year-end.
  • Some of the reasons behind this policy:

o   An employee, especially a guard, cannot carry anything else whilst on patrol.

o   It might influence an employee in the fulfillment of his or her duties.

o   It will be unfair to other employees, doing the same job (or even more), not to receive or benefit from this “gift”.

  •  It is trusted that all stakeholders, especially residents, will strictly adhere to this Policy.
