MEMBERS of the SAPS Galeshewe Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences (FCS) unit, led by Galeshewe FCS commander Lieutenant-Colonel Marli Strydom, held an awareness event during the pre-launch of the 16 Days of Activism for no Violence against Women and Children campaign on Wednesday.

Police spokesperson Captain Sergio Kock said informative pamphlets were distributed at the Galeshewe Shoprite and Kagisho Pick n Pay shopping complexes, while members engaged informally with community members on identifying and preventing gender-based violence.

“Older persons were also made aware of their rights and the correct procedures of lodging complaints,” said Kock.

The Premier’s Office will launch the 16 Days campaign at the AFM Phomolong church in Galeshewe on Thursday, from 4pm to 7pm.

A dialogue will be held, where participants will be invited to share experiences and find practical solutions to gender-based violence and femicide.

Information pamphlets were distributed at the Galeshewe Shoprite and Kagisho Pick n Pay shopping complexes by members of the Galeshewe SAPS Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences unit to help educate the public about gender-based violence. Pictures: Supplied
