PORT Shepstone SAPS visited Hoërskool Suid-Natal on Thursday where Grade 11 pupils were taught about sexual offences.

Lieutenant-Colonel Zandra Wiid from Communication, Liaison and Marketing, Detective Warrant Officer Bruce Reid from DPCI: Organised Crime and Detective Sergeant Britt Edwards from Family Child and Sexual Offences Unit, conducted the programme.

Edwards explained the definitions, investigation procedures and consequences of sexual offences.

“Dealing with these type of cases on a daily basis, she could expertly answer all of the many questions posed by pupils,” said Wiid.

Reid, who has many years’ experience in drug-related cases, spoke about the different types of drugs, the effects it has on humans as well as the legal implications when someone has been arrested for being in possession of drugs.

Samples of the different types of drugs were also shown.

“It is important to educate our youth at an early stage about sexual offences and drug-related crimes as it could have a serious effect on their further education, job opportunities or their lives as a whole,” said Wiid.
