Muizenberg police officers held an intervention at Little Castle Educare in St Stephen’s Road, Seawinds on Friday 23 March.

The visit was in light of recent gang activities in the area and police officers identified the toddlers as being the most vulnerable in the community­.

With this in mind they visited the around 49 young children aged between five months and five years and engaged with them around safety and the care and concern of police for them and their families.

Warrant Officer Mary-Ann Naidoo, Women’s Network champion at Muizenberg police, addressed the youngsters and reminded them that the police are their friends and that they can feel safe knowing that the police are there to help. Muizenberg police spokesperson, Captain Stephen Knapp, says other officers interacted with the children, sharing stories and building friendships.

“The children were very excited to see the police and expressed their delight at receiving the Easter party packs donated by the Women’s Network at Muizenberg police. Lieutenant Colonel Maggie Rossouw reiterated the fact that gangsterism must be combated on various levels and that the protection of our children from this evil is of utmost importance,” he says.

Lieutenant Colonel Mzwandile Gqabi, acting station commander of Muizenberg police, says that although the police are at the forefront of this battle it is incumbent on all in the community to accept and take responsibility for the safety of children.
