In partnership with Community Police Forum (CPF) and Community Safety Patrollers, police in Biesiesvlei visited Uitschit Primary School on Thursday, 8 April 2021, as part of School Safety Campaign.  The visit was aimed at educating learners about sexual offences, dangerous weapons, bullying and Gender Based Violence (GBV).

Visible Policing Commander, WO Mogapi presented about dangerous weapons and bullying. He was followed by Sgt Setlhare who addressed the learners about sexual offences. The awareness continued with the District Women's Network Champion, AC Motsime presenting Gender Based Violence (GBV). The learners were further encouraged to conduct themselves appropriately at school as well as at home.

In his remarks, the Deputy Chairperson of Community Police Forum (CPF) Mr Mooketsi, pleaded with the learners not to participate in criminal activities but rather to report crime to the police.  After presentations, the learners were given an opportunity to engage with the presenters.

As part of the day's activities, the District Communication Officer and members of Community in Blue distributed informative and promotional material. In conclusion, the grateful school principal, Mr Boshomane expressed his appreciation about the success of the activity. He also thanked the police for their tireless efforts to educate the learners about issues that affect their lives.
