Officers to demonstrate skills

2010-12-01 00:00

AS part of the 16 Days of Activism opposing violence against women and children, the SA Police Force in Port Shepstone has invited members of the public to a self-defence demonstration at the Civic Centre on Saturday.

The demonstration, which will begin at 9 am, will see Warrant Officer Ettienne Grantham and fellow officer Dave Middleton showing how to fend off an attacker.

Grantham and Middleton have already shown self-defence strategies to employees of Spar and Jaxx restaurant in uMtentweni, following a rape incident that involved a Spar employee who was attacked while walking home after work.

Lieutenant-Colonel Zandra Wiid, communications officer for the SAPF in Port Shepstone, has urged members of the public, especially women, to attend the demonstration as it will equip them with the necessary skills to protect themselves.

For more information about the demonstration, call Lieutenant Colonel Wiid at 082 826 8981.
