Band together for children

2018-09-18 06:01

The abduction or attempted abduction of children has become a major issue on social platforms.

People are reporting attempted abductions and in some cases claim actual abductions. This is very worrying. Most attempts appear to happen in the morning on the way to school. Girls are the targets. We know there are people who are sick in the mind who terrorise our children.

The community policing forum appeals to our community to be on the look out. Treat every child as your child and let’s take care of our children as a community. On the other hand, it has come to our notice that some of these “alerts” are fake, causing unnecessary alarm and panic. It also traumatises parents who are unable to accompany their children on the way to school.

We appeal to social media users to be responsible and only post first hand experiences and not to share posts which have not been verified.

Perhaps the time has come that we institute the walking bus system where parents walk with a group of children to school to protect them and shield them from the evil-minded perpetrators.

Together we can keep our children safe.
