THE KAKAMAS SAPS Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences unit held a gender-based violence (GBV) outreach campaign in Kakamas on Tuesday.

Police spokesperson Captain Sergio Kock said the outreach campaign targeted the main roads in the vicinity of Kakamas Hospital and the team distributed pamphlets addressing GBV and other related crimes.

“They also provided their cellphone numbers, as well as various helpline numbers, for victims to contact,” said Kock.

The provincial head for Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences (FCS), Brigadier Nicky Mills, commended Captain Vrede Myburgh and the Kakamas FCS team and all SAPS units for their efforts in addressing GBV and educating the community on the processes to be followed and services offered by the FCS units.
