THE South African Police Service (SAPS) in Kabega Park held an educational drive last week in an effort to create awareness of children’s rights, drug abuse, domestic violence and bullying.

The drive, in partnership with the Department for Safety and Liaison and the Community Police Forum, visited Kuyga Primary School to address its learners.

According to police spokesperson, Colonel Priscilla Naidu, the mounted unit with about 60 children and teachers led a procession through the streets of Kuyga handing out pamphlets.

“A door-to-door campaign was also conducted and the community was urged not to involve themselves in mob justice and instead to report unlawful deeds and criminals to the police,” Naidu said.

The PE family violence, child protection and sexual offence (FCS) unit also formed part of this drive. A rehabilitated drug addict gave a moving testimony on how he had turned his life around.

Naidu added, “The children were treated to food hampers and beverages, sponsored by local businesses in Kabega Park.

“The youth and our children remain one of our greatest assets as the change-makers and innovators of our country therefore their safety and well-being is of utmost importance,” Naidu said.
