THE KAGISHO police station precinct embarked on a GBVF NSP 100-day challenge door-to-door campaign in Phuthanang on Thursday as part of the fight against the scourge of gender-based violence and femicide.
Police spokesperson Sergeant Timothy Sam explained that the 100-day challenges are structured journeys for front-line teams and leaders that are designed to inspire and enable intense collaboration, continuous innovation and fast and disciplined execution.
“The multi-sectoral team comprised of the Office of the Premier, the Kagisho Community Police Forum, safety participants, Batho Pele NGO, Living Waters NGO and Hephzibah Counseling and Healing Centre,” said Sam.
“The team further consisted of the Department of Social Development VEP, Kagisho and Galeshewe SAPS Sector Teams and Coghsta.”
“The Department of Transport, Safety and Liaison criss-crossed the streets of Phuthanang in search of structural drivers of GBVF cases.
“A number of concerning observations were identified and given to the SAPS Kagisho Sector Team manager to handle and refer to social workers.”
The provincial social crime prevention co-ordinator for the SAPS, Captain Tebogo Makone, addressed the stakeholders and commended the team for a job well done.
He indicated that the campaign should not be a one-off event and should be taken beyond the 100 days.
