PUPILS from various schools in Galeshewe were exposed to the different career options available in the South African Police Service (SAPS) when the Galeshewe police hosted the Take a Boy and Girl Child to Work event.

Galeshewe police spokesperson Timothy Sam said numerous specialised units formed part of the event.

“Twenty different high schools in Galeshewe, led by the Galeshewe junior station commander, were hosted and exposed to the work environment of the police. This was to enable the learners to make informed career decisions. A number of internal and external stakeholders, like Men for Change and the Women’s Network, displayed their respective career fields through exhibitions. The different police units, Correctional Services, the Department of Sport, Arts and Culture and the South African Red Cross Society also showcased their expertise,” said Sam.

He added that pupils were also educated on how police members and units respond to different crime situations.

Sam said the pupils were urged to focus on their education in order to have a brighter future.

“Learners were encouraged to stick to their dreams and be agents of change. They were also advised to make a difference and a change in moral decay trajectory in their communities.

“The girl learners were donated sanitary towels by the police,” said Sam.
