WOLMARANSSTAD REACH OUT TO THE COMMUNITY
2022/05/25      |  Written By:  Sergeant L Seleke   |   Province:  North West

Wolmaransstad police in cooperation with the Community Police Forum (CPF) and Community in Blue conducted a crime awareness outreach in Tswelelang township, Extension, 13 and 17 respectively.

Valuable information such as contact details of the local police management and emergency contact numbers, was shared with the community. Due to escalating burglaries currently being experienced in the Wolmaransstad policing precinct, members of the community were encouraged to mark their property in order to assist the police in identifying such property during investigation.  

The Domestic Violence Coordinator, Constable Booi, sensitised the attendees about Gender Based Violence and Femicide (GBVF) and encouraged them to report such cases without delay to the police. In addition, victims were warned to desist from withdrawing such cases, as this does not only impacts negatively on optimal utilisation of state resources and service delivery, but also put their own lives in danger. The procedures to be followed to apply for a protection order was also discussed and pamphlets on domestic violence were distributed during the event.
