2020/03/04      |  Written By:  SAC MM NKABINDE   |   Province:  North West

The society that is  being safeguarded by the South African Police Service (SAPS), is characterised by social ills that often emanate from domestic violence. It is for this reason that members of Mooinooi Social Crime Prevention in collaboration with Brits Communications embarked on a quest of helping victims of domestic violence on Monday, 24 February 2020.  Victims that are accommodated at Grace Help Centre, situated at Mooinooi, were  given toiletries.
The Community Policing Officer of Mooinooi, Sergeant Elizabeth Mphatsa, urged women who have been victims of domestic violence to break the silence and report all incidents to the police. In addition, the Acting Station Commander of Mooinooi, Lieutenant Colonel Thomas Mokwena, emphasised that the police are mandated by the Constitution to ensure that victims of domestic violence are assisted with courtesy, privacy and dignity and the perpetrators thereof must be brought to book.
In an effort to empower them with knowledge, flyers on domestic violence were handed out and victims were given the assurance that the police care about them.
