The police held an awareness campaign to educate Northern Cape communities about sexual offences and how to report cases to the police.
THE DE Aar SAPS Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences (FCS) unit, Philipstown SAPS, Petrusville SAPS and the local Traffic department held an awareness campaign on Wednesday to educate communities about sexual offences and how to report cases to the police.
Police spokesperson Captain Sergio Kock said a roadblock was held, where truck drivers were sensitised about the dangers of picking up children and giving them lifts without the permission of their parents or guardians.
The provincial head of the FCS unit, Brigadier Nicky Mills, commended the De Aar FCS team for the “excellent” initiative.
“The awareness campaign can also be seen as an early build-up to the 16 Days of Activism for No Violence against Women and Children initiative.”
