SAPS celebrate child protection week in style


In celebrating the child protection week, the police in Ohrigstad led by the social crime prevention coordinator Sgt Kholofelo Phokane partnered with the Vispol members, CPF and YAC members, they conducted two separate awareness campaigns around their policing area.


In the first campaign the members conducted a Take a girl/boy child to work campaign where they invited five girls and five boys from the local Maepa Primary school on Wednesday May 30 to their station.

The learners were taken through a journey to all offices at the station and also met station managers and they were given orientation on how managers of each office are contributing towards the running of the station and their contribution towards the reduction of crime in line with the National Crime Prevention Strategy (NCPS).


In another campaign conducted on June 1, the members visited Ngwanatsela Crèche at Maepa Village outside Ohrigstad . There they celebrated the International Day of Children.


During his address, Phokane send a strong message to the little ones that they must never accept any foods from strangers; they must never allow any strangers to touch their body parts.

“You must never walk on the streets alone as you might   be kidnapped or abducted. Please report any form of abuse to your parents, teachers or to the police.


The two initiatives were part of the Youth Crime Prevention Strategy (YCPS) which seeks to empower and support young people in order to become self-sufficient and be involved in crime prevention initiatives.
