On Wednesday, 24 March 2021, Itsoseng Social Crime Prevention and Communication Officers visited Opang Diatla primary school to address learners about bullying and substance abuse.

The learners were among others, encouraged to regularly attend school and refrain from participating in illegal activities such as bullying and substance abuse. They were also warned to exercise caution against loitering outside tuckshops as they may meet with bad characters with the potential to influence them to do drugs and commit crime. Taking into consideration the recent heavy rains which led to flooding of streams and dams, the leaners were also urged not to swimming to avoid drowning.

As part of the awareness, the recently appointed Community Policing Officer, Sergeant Montsho, was introduced to the learners. To conclude the activity, the school principal, Mrs Tau thanked the members for the visit and committed that they will continue to work together with the police.
