Police visited several schools in the province

The South African Police Service says they visited several schools across the province namely Douglas, Warrenton, Kakamas, Pofadder, Port Nolloth, De Aar, Marydale, Kuruman, Petrusville, Plooysburg and Van Zylsrus this week as part of child protection week commemorations. Police spokesperson Lieutenant colonel Sergio Kock says learners were reminded of basic safety hints and of their right to be protected, treated with dignity, not to be human-trafficked, to be able to go to school, to be cared for and not to be treated cruelly. Kock says the children were told to protect and respect their bodies and that of others. He says they were compelled to break the silence and speak out if they knew of anyone who is being abused.
