Zero tolerance to violence

2015-12-09 06:00

IN support of the annual 16 Days of Activism of No Violence against Women and Children Campaign, personnel of the Kimberley Local Criminal Record Centre (LCRC) initiated an awareness campaign in conjunction with the local police in Galeshewe.

On Thursday (03/12) LCRC personnel, members of the Galeshewe Police Station, safety volunteers and community members marched from the police station to the Pick n Pay Shopping Complex in Seochwareng Street.

They joined the South African Police Service’s (SAPS) Provincial Band, the SAPS Women’s Network and Men for Change and attracted community members to create awareness on domestic violence and other crimes committed against women and children.

Lt Col Mashay Gamieldien, the provincial corporate communication head, complimented the SAPS band, directed by Sgt Olehile Mapitsi, that had the community jiving to the lively music played.

Messages of support were delivered and a motivational speaker, who shared her personal experience of domestic violence, was heard.

The head of crime prevention at the Galeshewe Police Station, Col Hennie van Rensburg, thanked the organisers. He gave a stern warning that the police would have a zero tolerance approach when it came to violence against women and children.
